circuits gourmands saké tastet mel 2020

Gourmet Tours of Saké in Montreal – The TASTET x Montréal en Lumière Gourmet Tours are back, and just in time for the impending holiday season! With the help of your feedback from 2019, the TASTET team has prepared six new and exciting themes for this year’s tours. This time around, you are invited to discover the worlds of saké, “real wine”, hidden bars, Greek cuisine, Chinese cuisine, and Italian cuisine in Montreal. 

For our Gourmet Tours of Saké in Montreal, we are fortunate enough to be accompanied by the wonderful Japanese culinary critic and saké sommelier specialist, Kuniko Fujita, otherwise known as “Madame Saké au Québec“. If you don’t know already, saké is a traditional Japanese alcohol made from fermented rice, and is often considered the Japanese equivalent of wine. Kuniko will accompany you to three carefully selected Japanese establishments, where you will get to discover excellent sakés and enjoy small Japanese appetizers, all while listening to the expert discuss the cultural history of saké in Japan. Is it meant to be enjoyed hot or cold? How is it manufactured? What does a good saké consist of? Kuniko will be there to answer all of your questions. Furthermore, you will be able to learn about the history and vision of each address on the tour and engage with their staff. 

Here’s everything you need to know.

Michele Chiarlo : A story of family and great wines

In the prestigious region of Piemonte, famous for its illustrious Barolo and Barbaresco, the wines have this unequivocal smell of an ancient dusty book. Some story they must tell! But for Alberto Chiarlo, of Michele Chiarlo wines, it takes more than a sniff of the bouquet to “get a real sense of place”.
