Great chefs constantly seek to create dishes that complement an accompanying wine.  Thanks to the recent Japanese food boom, sake has become very popular and is often included on wine lists at some of the most famous restaurants in New York.  Naturally, Japanese food goes well with sake, but forward-looking chefs are finding the Western cuisines that go well with it.  David Bouley, chef and owner of Bouley, Test Kitchen and Bouley Bakery, speaks about his passion for Japan and its food, as well as dishes he serves with the finest sakes. 

Followed by a sake tasting. 

Tickets: $35/$30 Japan Society members.

Both sessions have identical lecture and tasting content.
Due to the popularity of our annual sake programs, we request that you attend only one session.  Limited to 2 tickets per order.  Members may attend either session.  Participants must be 21 years of age.

Everyone attending the 3:30 pm session will receive a gift certificate for a free glass of selected sake at Sakagura restaurant on 43rd Street between 2nd and 3rd Ave.
