Japanese Cultural Workshop: Amazake
August 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Amazake, literally meaning “sweet sake”, is a healthy Japanese fermented rice drink. Known for its nutritious attributes such as glucose, enzymes, vitamins, essential amino acid, probiotics and etc., it is sometimes referred to as “the IV drip to drink” (飲む点滴) in Japan. There are two types of amazake. One is fermented with sakekasu (sake lees) with added sugar and contains a small amount of alcohol. But the other is produced with a mixture of fermentation rice and kome koji (rice malt). This turns into an all natural non-alcohol drink and its delicate sweetness comes from the rice. Everyone can enjoy this type of amazake since there is no alcohol content.
In cooperation with Aedan Fermented Foods, the Japan Society is proud to present our Japanese cultural Workshop: Amazake. Join us to learn more about this all natural non-alcohol rice drink and incorporate it in your dietary life.
Ms. Mariko Grady, Founder of Aedan, will give us a brief lecture of amazake followed by some tastings of unique and delicious drinks/dishes such as amazake coconut milk, amazake chai and amazake tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette), etc. She is happy to share a couple of her recipes as well. Aedan products will be available for purchase at the end of the workshop.
