Sake and Snack Pairing: Oden

Perfect for the cold winter! Warm up your body with some hot sake and Kanazawa-style oden. The “fu” is a specialty of Ishikawa Prefecture and is a focal point of this delicious and healthy Kanazawa-style oden. Not only is it low in calories, but fu also prevents anemia as it is rich in protein and minerals such as iron. The steamed octopus adds a nice flavor to the dish!

It is a luxurious snack that goes perfectly with fruity, mature, and rich types of sake.
