French Cheese Paired with Sake
New York, NY (June 28, 2016) – Join Asian Women in Business (AWIB) for a special tasting and networking event. Our "French Cheese Paired with Sake" evening is on Monday June 11, 2016 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at The French Cheese Board, 41 Spring Street, New York, NYC.
Our sake ninja will lead a discussion on how the umami in cheese and sake creates a perfect marriage. Six cheeses have been selected and will be paired with 7 kinds of sake.
A soft-ripened cheese from Seine-et-Marne, France complements the lemon-melon aromas and ripe golden apple and tart pear flavors of the sake.
A rich, creamy soft cheese made near the coast of Normadie paired with a cave-aged charcoal-filtered sake with moderately fruity notes. It will also be paired with a balanced Yukisuzume Junmai to show the differences in the relationship between food and sake.
A medium-hard cheese from Canton Bern, with a savory mild taste which will be paired with a robust and elegant sake.
The mildly fragrant sake from Kagawa, Japan has a subtle palate sweetness that becomes livelier when accompanied with the saltiness of Raclette from Auvergne, France.
The vibrant flavors of this dry Japanese sake complements the hearty Mimolette from Lilie, France.
Like a ripe fruit, this sake from Hiroshima, Japan has complex rich flavors of sweet and sour which pairs nicely with the earthy and velvety blue cheese from Auvergne, France.
