Welcome to TOMATO SEASON. My passion for farm fresh produce narrows into a tunnel vision of bright red, soft yellow, hunter green and purple hues. May your hands smell like tomato vines and may the heat, sun and storms produce the plumpest tomato babies we’ve ever seen.
The Koji Club is letting its hair down this month. While we are still a virtual sake bar and a super safe space to drink with new friends… The brick and mortar bar I dream of opening has a menu that shifts with the seasons.
This beverage menu sings with tomato season! We partnered with our friends and former colleagues (from o ya New York) at Heiwa World to give you a Tomato Ohitashi recipe to play with during this epic month of gorgeous produce. The recipe is included with your tomato kit.
Your tomato season sake kit contains a bottle and a glass cup of Japanese sake, a bottle of sherry and a bottle of red wine from the Canary Islands to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. The kit includes a Club Meeting (via Zoom) with host and Advanced Sake Professional, Alyssa Mikiko DiPasquale. Please sign up for the meeting at www.thekojiclub.com
