Seikyo Sake Takehara Junmai “Mirror of Truth”
Chianti and meatballs is a true American Italian classic. However, for National Meatball Day this year, I am looking to the Far East for inspiration. I had always loved the little teriyaki meatballs passed around at cocktail parties (when we could have those). You can find great recipes online for Tsukune (Japanese chicken meatballs) or Niku-Dango (Japanese pork meatballs) and when paired with a good Sake, you have yourself a party. Seikyo, Takehara Junmai “Mirror of Truth” Sake with its brown butter and mild honey taste is a perfect companion for the savory meatballs. This Sake can be served slightly chilled, at room temperature, or lightly warmed, giving you various pairing options, all in one bottle – Oishī (delicious)!
