The Sake (from Japan 酒= alcoholic drink) is a typical Japanese alcoholic drink obtained from a rice fermentation process. It has an alcohol content that generally ranges from 12 ° to 17 ° and can be drunk throughout the meal. It can be served cold, hot or at room temperature. In fact, the temperature of the Sake should be similar to the temperature of the food to which it is accompanied.
We are used to thinking about Sake in combination with Japanese food, while it has an intriguing ability to pair with a great variety of foods, including Western cuisine, and can be paired with dishes that wine does not pair with.
