AUGUST 27-29th - John Gauntner's US Sake Professional CourseGot an email from my pal John Gauntner - huh? You don't know the Sake Guy? You should! - asking if I would alert all to the fact that for the first time he will be offering his "Sake Professional Course" here in the States in August. This is a great opportunity to fill in all of those sake blanks that you may have swimming around your brain. John knows all - and if he doesn't know something at that exact moment he always will follow-up. He's like that! I strongly recommend this course, especially if you cannot make it to Japan for one of his January offerings. If you are into sake then get into John's course fast, as it will probably sell out. Herewith is John's "blurb":

On August 27, 28 and 29, the first stateside version of John Gauntner's Sake Professional Course will be held in New York City. The content of this three-day intensive sake course will be identical to that of the Sake Professional Course held each January in Japan, excepting of course the sake brewery visits and evening meals.The course is geared toward industry professionals wishing to expand their horizons in a thorough manner into the world of sake, and will therefore necessarily be fairly technical in nature, and admittedly somewhat intense. But the course is open to anyone with an interest in sake, and it will certainly be fun! The course lectures and tastings will begin with the utter basics and will thoroughly progress through and cover everything related to sake, and will consist of classroom sessions on all things sake-related, followed by relevant tasting sessions.The goal of this course is that no sake stone will be left unturned. Like its counterpart held in Japan each winter, it will be quite simply the most thorough English-language sake education in existence. Participants will also be presented with a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
