For this new Gourmet Encounter, the Chassagnette restaurant and Madame Saké meet again during two evenings with a thematic: "Around rice varieties ".
The season of rice harvest approaches, in the Camargue as well as in Japan where rice is a raw material and where all regions have their own predilection rice.
Just like wines (Pinot Noir or Chardonnay), some varieties are known for their gustatory qualities. Regarding sakes, the two most famous varieties are unquestionably the Yamadanishiki and the Omachi.
However, the variety is also where the best flavours can be found. Lately, many people have had the desire to pay homage to the locality as there is a strong connection between rice growers and sake producers.
We will travel across Japanese countryside (Nagano, Shiga, Mie and even Yamaguchi) to show all flavour differences.
Most rice varieties come from the Yamadanishiki, also grown from the Yamadabo, a very ancient variety still produced nowadays as it was in the mid-nineties.
The Chef and his team invite you to come and discover the flavours of different rice varieties in a 5 Flavour Notes Menu and Saké Pairing, on October 6th and 7th 2017, from 8pm on!
