I choose some of the best sakes in the world, and based on some discussion and tasting with me, Chef Kinch cooks an unbelievable meal designed to complement them. I've always loved the Japanese influence in David's cooking, and given that he recently spent some time exploring Japan again, I can't wait to see what he comes up with for this feast. I'm also especially excited at the caliber of sakes that we're planning on pouring, which are going to be truly phenomenal."
