If Women Ruled the Kitchen

I don’t know why Eve was blamed for the sins of the world. I don’t know why Mary couldn’t fuck to create her own son. And I don’t know why the Japanese wouldn’t allow women to brew sake.

I do know, however, that when a woman is granted permission to make sake it can taste light and sweet and refreshing.

Thank you Zentan, for inviting me to dinner and showing off the Ichishima Family (circa 1790) sake, Karen “Coy.”

    I’m not a fan of sake but have been trying to like it, I’m in LA this week and my friends want to host a sake tasting, I’m dreading it.

    Can you tell us a little more about the history of this sake?

    the restaurant (servers or chef) didn’t know any more about the sake, just that the brand was known for its female sake maker. the sake was delicious though. great with a light salad of greens and raw fish. (see zentan’s singapore slaw with sashimi)
