A number of Sake varieties, ranging from Honjozo to Ginjo and Daiginjo,
go well with creamy, sweet oysters.
In particular, the ideal accompaniment is a crisp, refreshing Sake,
as its dryness fully draws out the umami and mineral flavour of the oysters.
Sushi employs a variety of fish, covering everything from the light to the richly flavoured,
so suits pairing with a richly fragrant Sake of just the right level of sweetness.
It also harmonises with the vinegar-flavoured umami of the sushi rice
to create flavours that complement and overlap in a deeply satisfying way.
A light type of sparkling Sake with soft bubbles that lightens
the oil in the fish and chips while blending with the mineral umami of the fish.
Add extra depth to the flavours with some tartar sauce.
Enjoy a harmony of umami, sweetness and salt!
A great pairing that contrasts the strong saltiness of the ham with a rich, sweet Sake.
Combined with the clean aftertaste of a mellow Sake,
the fats of the ham melt away with sensuous delight.
The Sake also draws out the salty, umami flavours of the ham.
The umami of Sake rich in amino acid is a stunning match for cheese, another food rich in umami.
Rich cheeses such as mature cheddar, parmesan and blue cheese
should be paired with an aged Sake that offers a full, nutty aroma.
The robust sweetness and lasting reverberations of an aged Sake enhance the umami of the cheese,
which deepens the flavours of both.
Calamari, made from fried squid, can be paired with a daring, sparkling type of Sake.
The light umami of the squid combines with the rich, bubbly Sake to create complex flavours.
Add a squeeze of lemon onto the calamari for even more refreshment!

Pan Asian and Italian
Novikov Asian Restaurant Chef Luca Malacarne had provided us with the below quote:"From the minute guests enter the restaurant and see our open kitchen, fronted by a vast display of freshly caught seafood and mounds of enticing vegetables (some from our very own market garden), they know they are in for a unique culinary experience. Behind the scenes we are constantly striving to find new or unusual ingredients and cooking methods to create dishes that will wow our guests and leave a lasting impression. It is hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to, then our creamy wasabi gratinated king crab leg, served in its shell, takes some beating."
