On 19th October, premium Japanese restaurant Ginza Onodera will host the first in a series of exclusive five-course dinners in collaboration with World Sake Imports, perfectly pairing a curated range of signature dishes with a bold selection of rare premium sakes.
A collaboration between Ginza Onodera’s Head Chef, Ryosuke Kishi, Head Sommelier Angelo Lorea and leading sake brewery Yoshida Shuzo-ten, the bespoke menu will feature trademark teppan-yaki and robata dishes and signature sushi all carefully paired with interesting and rare Tedorigawa sakes. The menu includes the highly acclaimed Tsuyusanzen Nama Daiginjo, of which there are just 24 bottles imported to London a year.
The dinner will celebrate the start of the traditional sake making season, and allow diners to sample small batch sakes rarely seen in London. Premium sakes will include a selection of Tedorigawa sakes, made to the traditional Yamahai method, over a two weeks period in order to obtain a deep, premium flavour. Each course will be introduced by Head Sommelier Angelo Lorea and World Sake Imports Managing Director Asami Tasaka, to highlight key tasting notes.
