All About Sake
--Otomo no Tabito (c. 662-731)
Sake is an important aspect of The Passionate Foodie and I have written numerous posts on the topic. Though you can search my blog to find all sorts of Sake information, I decided that it might be helpful to my readers to compile the most important links into a single place. This post will be that repository, and as such will be constantly updated when I write another article about Sake. I have not linked to every Sake post I have written, as some possess outdated information, such as mentions of upcoming Sake events. I have also created a separate page for links to all of my Sake reviews, which you can find here.
If you have any Sake-related questions, feel free to email me. Please also remember that I am available for hire for a myriad of Sake services, from restaurant consulting to Sake paired dinners, from Sake tastings to educational classes. You should also check out my Sake-related fiction, the Tipsy Sensei series, which features a Boston-based Sake expert who learns that the supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore are real.
