Saké is more than a drink to be served with Japanese food

It is a beverage that is as versatile as wine. It can be enjoyed with cheese, chocolates, and all varieties of ethnic foods. Similar in profile to wine, saké is valued for its fragrance, impact, sweet or dry finish, acidity, presence and complexity.

Many premium and several rare saké will be available to taste, as well as micro brewed "jizake", which means small, regional saké brewer. Prominent local chefs will prepare and serve a selection of food samples that complement any type of saké.

Saké Fest was created in Philadelphia by Ed Markus & David Wagner, owners of Event Navigators, an international event production company specializing in fundraising events for non-profit organizations.
