Morita Organic Cooking Sake

What is cooking sake? Usually used in sauces and marinades, cooking sake rice wine is great for enhancing distinctive ingredient flavors and neutralizes the unpleasant smells of meats and fish. Though it’s often used alongside its Japanese cooking cousin, mirin, cooking sake is higher in alcohol and less sweet. This premium organic cooking sake will certainly take your cooking that extra step. It’s made entirely from organic rice, carefully brewed, rich in umami flavors, and has a full-bodied fragrance.

What Are The Different Types of Asian Cooking Wines?

Sake is a clear, dry alcoholic Japanese rice wine, also drunk as a beverage. Shaoxing wine is an amber-colored Chinese rice wine. Shaoxing is rich in both protein and flavor, and has a strong umami depth. Mirin is a sweet, clear Japanese rice wine. Michiu is the Chinese version of fermented rice wine, with a stronger taste than mirin. 

How To Cook With Asian Wines

Cooking wine is primarily used to reduce or remove greasiness from any heavy dishes like meat or fish. As the alcohol present in the cooking wine reaches a sufficient heat, it’ll begin to boil, and when the alcohol evaporates, it takes the unpleasant smells with it. 

Cooking wine can also help to tenderize meat. The acids present in the rice wine penetrate the meat’s tissue and break a little of it down, which results in a tastier and more tender bite.
