Sake Tasting: Sake 101 by Tiffany Dawn Soto

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of putting an intimate sake tasting networking event together with my good friend Tiffany Dawn Soto.  Tiffany is a Master Sake Sommelier and was there to teach a sake tasting class which she had also paired with a delicious reception menu at RM Seafood.  She has a special talent of pairing non traditional items with sake.  Below is the menu we tasted:

  • Mini Crab Cakes with Chipotle Mayo
  • Shrimp Hush Puppies
  • BBQ Pork Mac and Cheese
  • Pork Spring Rolls
  • Miso Glazed Beef Lettuce Wraps

The popularity of sake is definitely on the rise and Tiffany is just the right person for a sake tasting and/or pairing for a Japanese inspired wedding reception menu.  Here's a little video of Tiffany explaining a few sake terms.  Tiffany is the founder of the North American Sake Institute and is available for sake tasting and pairings for your next special event!
