Flavours of Japan: Sushi and Tea Tasting

Posted by Amie / May 19, 2010

Flavours of JapanTo wrap up the Acces Asie Festival on in Montreal throughout the month of May, Mikado restaurant on avenue Laurier is opening its doors this Saturday, May 22nd to anyone interested in watching their chef demonstrate the art of sushi-making and eating the art. The event, Flavours of Japan, includes a demo and tasting of sushi accompanied by a presentation and sampling of Japanese teas. It costs $20 to swing those doors open and find yourself a seat. Since it's so affordable, the tasting might prove to be more of a snack than a meal, but from 1-3pm you can watch art being sliced and poured in front of you.

The Festival Acces Asie has been around for 15 years, and celebrates Asian Heritage Month every May. The festival includes performances, art, films and lectures. The sushi tasting is the only culinary event on the menu.

Ever wonder what a sushi chef is thinking when you see him slicing fish? Not just how big a piece has to be to envelope a small handfull of rice, but how it's cut, what angle, and what thickness it should be. How much wasabi should he sneak between the fish and the rice in a nigiri? So much could be revealed in a two-hour tasting. Maybe even Mikado's sushi rice recipe. Since sushi just means "vinegared rice", what magic ingredients get added to the carefully prepared grains that make each restaurant's version a little different? What kind of fish is the generically-named "whitefish" that you see on menus? Where is the fish from and what makes it higher or lesser quality?

Of course, you can't neglect the teas. Tea specialist, Ritsuko Uchiyama will offer traditional sencha, or matcha, green tea. Find out about the art of preparing and serving the drink in tea ceremonies. What makes it so expensive and of such high quality? You'll probably get more answers by using your eyes and ears, rather than your mouth, so maybe just sit back and enjoy what's offered. Besides, your mouth will be occupied.

When: Saturday May 22, 1-3pm
Where: Mikado restaurant, 399 Laurier West
Cost: $20 a person
RSVP before Friday, May 21 by calling 514-523-1047

It isn't often you will run into someone who is dragging
their feet about selling and even if you do there are
many more properties out there that are up for grabs. CALL TO ORDER (7:00 PM, City Council

'With my complete system converted to the i - Pad, an investor can get a lead on a house and immediately pull up
a street view of the house, look up comparable sales, get directions and call
the seller back, from literally anywhere,' said De - Rosa.
This is the piece of legislation which deals with lease
extensions. This method usually involves providing documented
proof to the lender that the delinquent homeowner is in a hardship situation and can no longer afford to
make payments on their mortgage loan. We define slumlords as landlords who maximize profits by
minimizing maintenance of their properties. The depreciation write
off allowed by the IRS, and most states, shelters your new passive
income. This trend will likely to continue to perform will into the predictable
future. Public Housing Authority checks continue even during an tenant eviction.
