Moshi Moshi welcomes Jesse Pugach, Founder of Fifth Taste this Thursday, August 15th from 6pm to 9 pm. Fifth Taste is a local sake distributor with an amazing profile of sakes that promise to tease and tantalize the umami receptors on your tongue. Jesse is joined by his wife, Liza Kaplansky, a local cheese expert, (currently working for Sweet Grass Dairy) and together they have curated phenomenal pairings of local cheese and Japanese sake for the evening.
Two years ago Mitsuru-san and I went to True Sake‘s Sake Day festival in J-Town where Jesse and Liza had a table where they were offering samples of sake and cheese – we were blown away. Ever since that day Mits and I have talked about recreating that tasting at Moshi. Well, here it is and I hope it to be one in a line of sake and cheese pairings to come.
Please note: while reservations are not necessary they are highly recommended. Also note that the picture does not reflect the actual sake and cheese flight being offered it is only for marketing purposes.
