Honey's Sake Symposium from Ten Thousand Waves

By Honey Harris

Cannot stream the podcast.

"33 Sakes in 33 Days" to help celebrate Ten Thousand Waves' 33rd birthday enters our fifth week with a bang.  This week we will be talking about sakes from the Saiya Brewery, one of the world's most award-winning sakes producers.  All of Saiya's Yuki No Bosha sakes are genshu which means that they are not diluted with water.  Today we are featuring the Yuki No Bosha Junmai Ginjo, a favorite of new and seasoned sake drinkers alike.  We really liked this sake with its strong and big flavor and thought it paired well with Chef Kim Muller's fantastic miso barbeque- glazed chicken special.  The Yuki No Bosha Junmai Ginjo is medium-bodied with a soft, creamy mouthfeel. 

At Izanami, they are celebrating the 33rd birthday of Ten Thousand Waves' with a happy hour now through February. Every evening after 9pm, all food at Izanami is 33% off the regular menu price. And all day today you can taste the Yuki No Bosha Junmai Ginjo  at a special price. Just mention that you heard about it on The Big Show. Be sure to take your notes and enter our contest to win dinner for two at Izanami and a private hot tub for two from Ten Thousand Waves by logging onto santafe.com keyword sake on Fridays and on Monday we will draw a winner.
