Sponsored by Gohan Society & Kampai.US, Gohan+Shochu Summer Tasting Event features 5 courses from Bara Executive Chef Ian Alvarez + 5 shochu pairings selected by shochu specialist Stephen Lyman. Lyman, who runs Kampai.US, will explain each shochu as it’s served with each course.
The Gohan Society is happy to be a part of this event, the first in a series of four seasonal tastings. Shochu is popular in Japan with young Japanese people because this distilled beverage contains less sugar and has fewer calories than other types of alcohol. Shochu has a long history in Japan, but most New Yorkers are more familiar with sake. To that end, we want to introduce Japan’s most popular drink to The Gohan Society’s friends.
