La Bento Box by Nikka

Post by Stefan of Tokyo Whisky Hub
Whisky fans based in Paris wishing to enjoy the hanami season in style now have the chance to do so with a bento that would put most lunch boxes here in Japan to shame. It’s a collaboration between the amazing chef Sakura Franck – of Japanese gourmet hub (it’s more than a restaurant!) “Sous les cerisiers” – and Nikka Whisky and it includes the following: aubergine fritters, stuffed with chicken and nuts, prepared with Nikka From the Barrel; macha soba with salmon and raisins macerated in Taketsuru 12; foie gras maki with Miyagikyo 10; and for dessert, mochi with milk-chocolate and apple cooked in Nikka Coffey Grain. It’s a seasonal thing, obviously, (available until the end of the month) so for those lucky enough to be in Paris, this is one opportunity not to be missed. Nonjatta will be spending the summer in France – exploring its calvados and whisky (yes, don’t laugh!) culture, among other things – and “Sous les cerisiers” is one of the places we’ll be checking out on our travels. And even though this “La Bento Box by Nikka” won’t be available anymore by then, we’re sure there’ll be new marvels to try.
