• [Special] Kamoizumi Sake Pairing Dinner @Morsels

    UE Square Shopping Mall

    5 Course Pairing Dinner with Kamoizumi Sake Brewery $150 nett Guided by President Kazuhiro Maegaki Experimental Asian Fusion Surrounded yet almost hidden by the lush greenery of iconic dining destination, Dempsey Hill, Morsels makes her new home rustic barnyard-style. The 40-seater restaurant founded and run by Chef-Owner Petrina Loh since 2013 serves wildly creative fusion dishes which are ingredient-driven, paired with specially curated list of wines, sake, craft beers and house-infused cocktails. Chef Petrina’s experimental fusion cuisine defies boundaries and ignores attempts at pigeonholing, so to speak. She shares, “I like to work with a variety of ingredients, teasing their natural flavours to release into the mouth a trained frenzy of sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami, tempering the temperature and texture, all on one plate.” The chef-owner’s life tenets extends to the restaurant’s ethos-genuine, artisanal and approachable. Guided by President Kazuhiro Maegaki The Maegaki family has been producing sake in the famous brewing town of Saijo in Hiroshima since 1910. The brewery has always taken a strong stand for individuality, producing robust, tawny, full-flavoured sakes with a smooth finish. As president of Kamoizumi brewery and great-grandson of the founder of Kamoizumi Sake Brewery, Kazuhiro passes down their goal of reviving the traditional Sake making, using only rice and Sake Koji, which began in the 1960s. Kamoizumi has garnered the reputation of a pioneer of Junmai Jozo since 1972 and continues to make good quality Sake with his father Hisao, the third generation of the brewery. https://www.eventbrite.sg/e/morsels-sake-pairing-dinner-tickets-72475633571 ----------------------------------------- Sake Matsuri Singapore 2019 aims to raise the awareness and appreciation for craft sake.
