The highlight dish is clear soup with sweet fish and aubergine and radish tade-leaf. The young leaves of the radish leaves are traditionally used as a condiment in many meat and fish dishes, as they are nutritional powerhouse in terms of antioxidants and lends sweetness to the broth. It is also high in vitamin C and calcium.
The sake selected to pair with Yamazato’s food for lunch and dinners are:
Yama-no-kasumi Cloudy Sparkling: Bottled with live yeast for genuine in-bottle secondary fermentation, this allows the creation of unique fine bubbles with good retention, an elegant feeling on the tongue and rich flavour throughout the mouth. Enjoy the rice’s umami and sweetness in this sparkling sake.
Furinbizan Junmai: Using the best quality underground water flow from Mount Kaikoma of Minami Alps National Park. The umami of the rice beautifully spreads throughout the mouth and the delightful aroma flows out from the nose on the first sip, the finishing flavour is clear, firm and semi-dry as it goes down.
Kinu no aji Junmai Daiginjo: Using the best quality underground water flow from Mount Kaikoma of Minami Alps National Park. This sake is wonderful during meals and gives off a perfectly balanced fruity aroma, a characteristic of a Daiginjo. This sake's greatest aspect is its clean, refreshing taste which makes this a wonderful food pairing sake.
