In this video, Carole Mac seeks the perfect sake for pairing with sushi. Learn from Chef Nakajima and sake sommelier Timothy Sullivan which the best pairing for whitefish sushi is.
Chef Nakajima, a third-generation sushi chef from Tokyo, takes Carole through a tasting of whitefish sushi: sea bream (also known as “tai,” Japan’s most classic fish), flathead fish, and Nakajima-san’s favorite, Golden Eye Snapper.
Uogashi, which translates to “fish market” in Japanese, sources its fish from some of the most reputable markets in Japan, including Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji Market. That’s how you know it’s fresh.
Once again, Timothy Sullivan of UrbanSake guides us through tasting sake and pairing it with sushi. He presents Carole and Nakajima-san with two options: the clean, unaged Hakkaisan Junmai Ginjo, and the more robust, aged Hakkaisan Yukimoro.
Remark: Uogashi had a fire on October 3 2018. This episode was filmed during the summer.
