Wine and cheese?  NORMAL.  Cheese and crackers?  BEEN THERE DONE THAT.

East meets/versus west in this unusual pairing event.  Learn about a selection of traditional Japanese food and why they make the perfect, albeit unlikely pairing for your favorite cheeses.  

The goal is to broaden people's perspectives of what works in pairing with cheeses outside of the typical European contexts of things like membrillo, fig preserves, mostarda, wine and so on.
Part of our bigger goal here is to bring Asian ingredients and foodways into focus in the so-called "specialty market" and out of the "ethnic market" calling attention to some similarities in production (lactic fermentation, curing, aging, etc) with the cheese category. Even where these ingredients are merchandised in the same place as European "specialty" foods,  people consider the "Asian section" as some other entity within the market, it's own world so to speak.  We'd like to encourage crossover. This is definitely done on the menus of Bay Area restaurants so why not at home, too?

Ticket price includes Japanese food and sake + cheese pairing finished off with handmade mochi + green tea.

Mandatory: be curious and ready to have your mind blown.
