Item description for Sake: A Drinker's Guide by Hiroshi Kondo...

This book is all you need to get started on the sake experience. Here is an expert's guide to types, tasting, and brewing methods, with a detailed list of Japan's best sakes and a no-nonsense approach to the misleading maze of ranks and gradings and labels.

Here is a home entertainer's guide to serving--warm, but not hot, please, and how about on the rocks? or sake cocktails? and to the varied cuisine that has developed around sake drinking, with recipes for easy-to-make Japanese foods you and your friends can enjoy with sake throughout the year.

For travelers to Japan there are helpful sections on Japanese drinking places and on ordering, toasting, and banqueting. For North American readers, there is information on brewers and the major imported brands available in the United States.

Finally, for lovers of tradition--and what is drink without tradition?--page after page of authentic sake lore, from the age of the gods to the present day, offer a beautifully illustrated celebration of the sophisticated art of imbibing in Japan. Sake, you will discover, has always been Japan's essential oil of human relations, the great relaxer after a busy day. If you're a person who can talk fluently about sake, you're talking a language your Japanese friends and business colleagues will really understand.

So kampai! Here's to a luscious brew! The next time you go to a liquor store or restaurant, take this book. Select with confidence and know what you're drinking. And the next time you have friends over, treat them to sake.

PRETTY GOOD BOOK  Oct 14, 2006
Sake: A Drinker's Guide gives a good overview of Sake, covering most questions that the casual reader might have about this wonderful drink.
