Umami Mart Sake Talk

Sake Talk was our first class on sake at our new space. We wanted to create a 3-D version of the sake part of the zine, Sake + Shochu Talk, in seminar form. During this course, we touched on sake types, koji, and serving temperature. All of the attendees had great questions; ranging from "does sake taste different when you drink from a glass versus a can?" to "When do you have sake warm?"

Part lecture, part dialogue, and part tasting, Sake Talk was great platform to to get a conversation going about sake!

The seminar took place at our beautiful bar. Everyone got to take home a Sake + Shochu Talk zine!

During the tasting portion, we emphasized that it's important to use all of your senses to assess the sake.
