True Sake Newsletter December 2004

Posted by Stephen King in 2004, December, Monthly Intro, Newsletter
Welcome to the fourth installment of America's sake-centric newsletter. Thank you for the numerous compliments for my Thanksgiving suggestion of pairing sake with turkey. That said; let's not forget that bird-is-the-word for Christmas dinner as well. And for the Goose-down people there are plenty of full-bodied and rich sakes that fly in-line with these honkers. The honey baked ham crowd would be foolish not to provide at least one Genshu (undiluted) sake for their pig out. And lastly Santa wanted me to remind you that he gets plenty of milk on X-MAS Eve but prefers a "kick-butt glass of Junmai Dai Ginjo with those wretched cookies." His words not mine!
