I realize the irony of calling my blog ‘sake chronicles’ and then falling off the ladder by failing to chronicle my progress in the sake world, but this time I have a good excuse! I have been extremely busy in a new, sake-related adventure.
In my post last summer, I mentioned visiting Ontario Spring Water Sake Company in Toronto, Ontario. I had introduced the head brewer to the owner (we had both worked at the same sake brewery in Saku, Nagano, Japan, albeit at different times), and stopped by for a visit. Well, things progressed from there, and since September, 2011, I have been working as the head brewer’s assistant, continuing my quest to be a sake brewer. As much as I liked living in Japan, this opportunity was too good to pass up.
So, if you are ever in Toronto and want to get a close look at a sake brewery and try some delicious, fresh, unpasteurized sake, please stop by (see the link for directions), I will be happy to show you around!
thanks for reading.
