SAKE DINNER WITH MASARU TERADA: A short recap

At Dim Dining, we are constantly striving to offer new and unique culinary experiences. On the 17th of May, we had the pleasure of welcoming a select number of guests to an exclusive sake night with none other than Terada Masaru-san. As the 23th generation brewery head of the renowned organic Japanese sake brewery Terada Honke, he shared his extensive expertise during an intimate evening at our restaurant.

A 4-course menu by Dim Dining was served with adapted to the outstanding flavours of the kimoto muroka junmai shizenshuunfiltered 100% pure sake by Terada Honke. Founded in 1673, this brewery is the only remaining one in Japan that still uses biologically grown rice, natural fermentation, self- cultivated kōji and pre-modern starters. Not even a stopwatch is used to measure the time of the soaking of the rice.

EXCLUSIVE BOLLINGER DINNER: A SHORT RECAP

On the 25th of April, we welcomed a select group of guests to an exclusive Bollinger dinner. Champagne house Bollinger and our saké expert Jonas Kellens brought out the most exquisite vintages, which were paired with an extraordinary menu, served for one night only. “Champagne is an amazingly versatile drink, it's very elegant and complex at the same time and it can be paired with a lot of unknown products. Even with a heavy dishes as Wagyu beef” Jonas explains. Our chefs Simon Van Dun and Yuki Kimura have made a 6-course menu specially for that night.

A special thanks also goes out to our Dim Dining partner, Champagne House Bollinger where we are officially Bollinger Ambassador for. At the end we had an extraordinary mystery bottle that our guests needed to guess with vintage year it was and the year of dégorgement. We would not be Dim Dining if we didn’t serve the most oldest vintage that is on the worldwide market. A beautiful magnum 1976 to end this extraordinaire dinner with. That is dégorged in 2013. So it layed 37 years sur lattes. “It will be maybe one of the last 2 bottles ever on this planet” Olivier de Schutter ( Ambassador of Bollinger ) explains.

In short, the champagnes, outstanding menu and beautiful setting formed the perfect combination. Our amazing guests, partners and the Dim Dining team made sure it was an unforgettable evening. Take a look at the event pictures for an impression of the night.
