Making Dallas Even Better

Become an Expert: Sake Adviser Certificate Course Offered at Kazy’s in Dallas

You already know the difference between a coulis and a confit. And you can probably recite the best vintages of Bordeaux. If you are really, and I am mean really a true connoisseur, you know: “Pietro Ferrero combined roasted hazelnuts, almonds, sugar (or, failing that, molasses), cocoa powder, and vegetable fat. Driving down the quantity of cacao solids reduced the cost, so that the product could be sold for less than one-fourth the price of chocolate.”

But I bet you don’t know dookie about sake.

Well, friends here comes your chance to get a little buzz and impress your snooty foodie friends with a certificate that says you know sake. This news comes from our good friend at Tei-An, Yousuke Fukuda.


This Sake Adviser Course is an entry-level qualification in Sake offered by  SSI Certified Sake Instructors (Nihonshugaku-koshi) worldwide and certified by the SSI in Japan. It is aimed at people who are interested in Sake and want  to learn more about Sake. The Course gives a basic grounding in sake history, production, styles, regionality, understanding labels, serving, storing, and  sake culture. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a SSI Sake Adviser Certificate. Instructor : Toshio Ueno (Certified Sake Instructor)

    Ah, but do you know the year in which Signor Ferrero first hatched his plot for Nutella to take over the world?

  • Nancy Nichols

    Kirk, no I don’t. I’m not that smart. But what a glorious world it would be. One nation of Nutellas.Nutellaites? Nutellians?
