Taste and discover more about the wonderful world of food!
Genuine Education Network in conjunction with Slow Food present to you our Genuine Japan Lecture series at the Slow Food Pavilion, EXPO Milano 2015.
Come and join us on Tuesday at 4.30pm the 23rd of June as we bring you on a journey through the diversity of sake and pickles. Our two speakers Marie Cheong-Thong and Bernhard Arnold were researchers on our recent trip to Japan to study genuine Japanese food culture.
Marie is from London and is an avid fan of sake and all other things drink and food. She will be conducting a sake tasting lecture at the Wine Bank, Pollenzo on the grounds of the University of Gastronomic Sciences the day before on the 22nd of June. Beyond just tasting sake, Marie will be sharing with us her knowledge on sakes from all over Japan as well as other parts of the world. Her short talk at the Slow Food Pavilion on Tuesday will begin to demystify sake for us and invite us to ponder upon the rich diversity of this drink made solely from rice grains.
Bernhard on the other hand is from Germany and is a graduating Masters student of Anthropology of Food. Passionate about the meanings, traditions and expectations that link people and their daily foods, he will be introducing us to the rich diversity of pickles that exist in Japan as well as making comparisons with those found here in Europe. Like with sake we will be able to taste these pickles brought all the way over from Japan.
