Joy of Sake Soiree 2010

Benefit for Citymeals-on-Wheels


America's Largest Sake Celebration Dazzled New Yorkers 




Over 600 devoted sake fans � and a hefty number of sake initiates � turned out for the Joy of Sake Soiree, quite accurately billed as America�s Largest Sake Celebration. Attendees who ranged from sophisticated foodies to first timers attracted by the growing rage for premium sakes were treated to an almost dizzying array of the world�s finest sakes � many of them unavailable outside of Japan.


The Joy of Sake Soiree on September 23 was a magical evening of sake tastings and delicacies from New York�s finest restaurants at the chic industrial loft 82 Mercer in Soho. Over 330 labels from every region of Japan were available for tasting at this ultimate celebration of the art of sake brewing. As well, there were signature dishes created by 13 of New York�s top chefs to complement the sake tasting. Among the acclaimed restaurants participating were Bond Street, 15 East, Geisha, Sushi Samba, Sakagura, En Japanese Brasserie, oms/B, Matsugen, Hibino, 1 or 8, Tanuki Tavern, Zengo and Woo Lae Oak.  . 


 Chris Pearce the organizer of Joy of Sake, the largest sake celebration in America, warmly welcomed guests to what has become an eagerly anticipated annual event. Not wanting to hold attendees from their serious �work� ahead he introduced several key figures in the Sake community to partake in the �Kagami Biraki�, the traditional opening of the keg with wooden mallets. To the thunder of Japanese drummers, the group smashed their mallets onto the keg top, cracked it open and scooped out cups for the official toast to begin the evening. The crowd applauded wildly and then quickly moved on to the sakes!


Guests who imbibed copiously and gorged on such exquisite appetizers as Tuna truffle sandwiches, roasted tender octopus and smoked oysters with Wasabi Bloody Mary sake did so guiltlessly,  as the evening benefitted a charity much loved by New Yorker�s � Citymeals-on-Wheels. While sake preferences varied wildly, all agreed that this event was, hands down, one of the best tasting events of the year


At the end of the evening, guests were able to take advantage of a rare treat.
Trenton Scott Ulicny
of Ty-KU had responsibly provided a small fleet of Rickshaw Pedi-Cabs to take happy sake tasters to their next destination


This extraordinary evening celebrating the world�s finest sakes was presented by Kokusai Sake Kai with support from World of Sake Imports, Gekkeikan, Sake One, Green River Sake, TY-KU, Acqua Panna and San Pellegrino
