Beau Timken: Sake Tasting with Beau Timken (9/14/09)

Beau Timken, Owner, True Sake

Join New York Times-acclaimed author and sake expert Timken for an evening of sake exploration and appreciation. This tasting and lecture will move sake from its ancient past to today, focusing on how “nihonshu” (sake) made its way to the West and has often been misunderstood in the process. Timken will pour representative brews that will explore the categories of sake, highlighting the impact of this 1,000 year-old libation on the modern culinary scene. A San Francisco original, Timken is the owner of True Sake, the first dedicated sake store in America.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on September 14, 2009.
