MFAH Art + Sake: "Types and Tastes of Japanese Sake"
Made from rice, sake — in English-speaking countries — is often mistakenly called rice wine. However, its brewing process is similar to beer. Thought to originate in the 7th century, sake was first used for temple rituals and at the royal court, only later becoming a popular beverage.
During this program, hear about the production of sake and taste six varieties of the drink along with authentic finger foods that pair well with each sake.
Meet in the lobby of the Law Building as the evening begins with a 30-minute tour of exhibition highlights in Unfolding Worlds: Japanese Screens and Contemporary Ceramics from the Gitter-Yelen Collection, led by curatorial staff. Following the tour, participants are escorted to the interactive portion of the program.
Presented by Carl Rosa, founder, Sushi Club of Houston.
