Seminar Report: A Spice of Art to Your Meal! French Home-Cooking and Sake
Jennifer Julien, French cuisine culture adviser, gave the second lecture on “A Spice of Art to Your Meal! French Home-Cooking and Sake“ at OZU Kyoto on March 13, 2015.
Spring season is so short in France that French people long for summer vacation. She embodied such a feeling in her meal of the day, and participants could feel an early-summer in her French home-cooking. They enjoyed “marriage” between sake and French home cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere, listening Ms. Julien’s talk about how French enjoy drink on vacation.
