From 12 December 2011
It is with great excitement and anticipation for the future of sake in Australia that I welcome you to Sake Online.
When I first started promoting sake in Australia 12 years ago, I could only dream of the extensive choice of sake that is now available in this country. It is beyond my wildest expectation to also have this range accessible by the Internet and available for home delivery!
I am very proud to be the ambassador for Sake Online and I look forward to sharing my love of sake with other sake enthusiasts and novices alike. Every month I will focus on a different aspect of my experiences with sake and hopefully go some way to improving your knowledge of sake and demystify many of the myths surrounding one of the most enjoyable drinks on the planet.
Sake has so much depth and diversity, but unfortunately it is often overlooked and greatly misunderstood. Here at Sake Online you will discover a diverse range to be enjoyed on any occasion or with any meal, whether it be with obvious pairings such a sashimi or lightly grilled fish or not so obvious matches such a summer BBQ or a Sunday roast.
To celebrate the launch of Sake Online, I hope you will join me in sampling some of the offerings available. To help you get started I have selected three favorites that I believe are perfect to enjoy over the Christmas break and would also make excellent gifts that are out of the ordinary and delicious at the same time.
Head down to the Australian National Homebrewers Conference this Friday and get the lowdown on Sake production.
On Friday 26th October at 12.45pm (Kitchen Theatre), seasoned Sake Professional Andre Bishop will delve into an overview of the sake brewing process.
This presentation is one of many at the three day event, held at William Angliss Institute, 555 Latrobe St, Melbourne.
The ANHC is the premier destination for beginner and expert home brewers alike.
