A lot has been discussed about wine pairing. The art, science and principles behind it are reviewed and debated at length by experts and connoisseurs. I wrote about wine pairing wine Chinese New Year dishes recently as well (link: https://www.wineedens.com/single-post/2018/01/15/Chinese-New-Year-Wine-Pairing)
On Friday, 26th Jan 2018, we will be pairing several excellent, cool climate wines with Japanese omakase cuisine at the famed Chikuyotei restaurant, Intercontinental hotel. We will push the boundaries of wine pairing, testing conventions by bringing together Australian wines and authentic fine-dining Japanese dishes!
We will think on our feet - It's OMAKASE! ("trust the chef") - and let our senses lead the way. It is admittedly a challenge. We will, in all likelihood, make mistakes. But we will have fun in the process, in the company of French winemaker, Antony Paume, at this sell-out private, 10-guests event.
Japanese omakase, Australian cool climate wines, French winemaker. Think about that for a second.
