Kenichi Chef Hung is Feeling Low


Apparently, (groovy music warning) Kenichi Dallas sent me a press release several weeks ago to announce a special sake fest to benefit The Family Place. I either ignored it or I don’t  remember–who knows. Anywhoo, Chef Hung asks me to ask you to come to this special sake tasting at Kenichi.

Join us Nov 19th at Kenichi Dallas for a tasting of eight premium genuine Japanese sakés: two junmai, two ginjo, two daiginjo, a nigori, and a fun sparkling. Kenichi’s saké sommelier has selected these from the restaurant’s extensive list, perhaps the largest in the nation, to form a fun, completely approachable, taste-at-your-pace event. Participants will receive a tasting booklet describing the brews sampled and and will be guided by the only saké service team in Texas certified by the Japan Saké Brewers Association’s Saké Educational Council. Whew.

As a child, I wanted to be a sake sommelier but it turned out to be yet another one of those youthful wishes, hopes, and dreams that slipped from my mental grasp. However, I did go to a sake tasting last year and it was a learning experience: do not mix red wine with mass quantities of sake. Details for the sake tasting below. Now go.

Cost is $40 + tax per person. Kenichi is donating proceeds and the Kenichi staff is volunteering its time. The beneficiary, The Family Place, is
a Dallas domestic violence shelter.

Wed. Nov 19th, 6:30 – 8:30 (arrive any time before 8pm; taste at your own pace)
