It was my honour to work with Mr Koichi Saura, the 13th Generation president of Urakasumi Sake Brewery Saura Co., Ltd when he visited London.

If you’ve been sake enthusiast or lover, probably you’ve heard of the name “Urakasumi”, which is elegant style of sake with long history brewery based in Shiogama City in Miyagi prefecture.

My cousins are living in Natori city in Miyagi prefecture, so I always feels affinity to the brewery and sake, somehow..

We’ve started the day from Master class called “Afternoon in Misty Bay”, then in the evening I have hosted the Dinner event at 1 michelin star restaurant called PORTLAND.

PORTLAND restaurant is stands on the little quiet street around the busy Oxford Street. They have just won the 1 michelin star restaurant in 2015. The restaurant is surrounded by offices and casual cafes, so when you get to the restaurant, you would ask yourself, is this really a 1 michelin star restaurant? But, super lovely kind staffs and wonderful dishes would blow your mind.. I truly loving this hidden restaurant.

So, we had tasting menu in the private dining room.

All dishes were so fresh and fun and every ingredients were so seasonal. Variety of texture, flavour and taste… But selection of Urakasumi we had, they were pair very well with the each dishes.

In the end of the dinner, Mr Saura asking around the table, the best match of the evening. We had a lot of different opinions and so so interested everybody has got completely different preference and opinions. It was great evening.
