A match made in heaven.
Delight your palate

Sweet vs Dry
One metric for sake is its ability to lean toward either the sweeter side or to be dry depending on the amount of sugars left after fermentation. Sweet sakes are often highly aromatic and go great with rich foods or as an after dinner drink. Dry sakes can be great with fatty foods.
Light vs Rich
Some sakes are extremely light with a refreshing taste that quickly leaves your palate, others are rich and full, sticking with you for a while after each sip. Try pairing light sake with fish or a mild cheese. A rich sake can go really well with a tomato sauce or steak.
Fruity to Umami
Some sakes have a delightful fruity aroma and taste while some have a much deeper savory flavor. Fruity sakes are great for sipping on their own and are enjoyed with salty foods or citrus. The flavor of umami rich sakes can develop over a session and are great with smoked meats and mushrooms.
