    Default sushi and sake

    If you are a sushi lover, I suggest you check out the new Sushi FAQ
    website, with information about sushi, sashimi and related Japanese
    food. With information about sushi ranging from beginner to expert,
    recipes, and even calories and nutritional information the Sushi FAQ has
    it all! Sake is an integral part of the sushi experience, so come read
    all about sake in our 'sushi profiles' section, you may be surprised at
    the variety in this wonderful rice wine.

    Two points:

    1. Although I personally like sake with sushi, most Japanese consider
    it be very inappropriate. It's having rice with rice. So have it with
    sushi if you like to, but realize that it's certainly *not* "an
    integral part of the sushi experience." The standard drinks with sushi
    are beer (carbonated beer) and tea.

    2. Sake is not a "rice wine." Wine is made from grapes, and by
    extension, from other fruits. Because Sake is made from a grain,
    rather than a fruit, it's a *beer* (albeit an uncarbonated one),
    rather than a wine.

    I quite like cold sake as a pre-meal drink for sushi but I *do not* like
    drinking it with the meal. I only drink green tea or dry Japanese beers
    (excluding sake) with it and I refuse to be told that sake is part of
    the experience.

    experience?
