A Japanese saké dinner by Thierry Marx

In Japan, the cherry blossom season coincides with the arrival of the saké nouveau. Just like our national Beaujolais, the new white alcohol is celebrated during a traditional ceremony called Kagami Biraki.

For the occasion, the country of the rising sun is hosting a dinner at the very chic restaurant Le Camélia inside the deluxe Mandarin Oriental hotel. On Wednesday 17 April, the 100% Japanese meal will be preceded by the traditional hammer opening of the saké barrel by Thierry Marx, the in-house chef and famous juror of Top Chef.

This festive menu begins with an assortment of revisited sushi, followed by a steamed eggplant in a sweet and sour sauce, delicately fried chunks of cod with vinegar soya sauce, marinated chicken with ginger served with a tasty miso soupe and a dorayaki dessert, a pancake stuffed with red bean and a scoop of green tea ice cream. All accompanied by saké of course, served in masu, traditional box-shaped wooden cups.

We like : a refined special event in a beautiful setting, not to be missed!
