Paris, 20 October 2017 - Le Cordon Bleu Paris announces the creation of a day class enabling participants to become fully immersed in Japanese culture and to discover the history of Sake, its production and its diverse qualities. This is also the perfect opportunity to learn tasting techniques and how Sake is used in cuisine.
Taught by Sylvain Huet, Sake Samurai – an honorary title bestowed on leading experts around the globe - this programme is equally suited to hospitality, restaurant and sommellerie professionals, F&B Managers, food journalists and all those with a keen interest in Japanese culture.
Sake, fruity and spicy alcohol made from fermented rice, is booming outside of Japan, attracting interest from the most discerning of palates, leading Chefs and restaurant owners in France.
