“As noted by Decanter, over 100 sake breweries have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami. This is not just an infrastructure issue; the planting and tending of rice fields in 2011 will be especially difficult with the shortage of raw materials, fuel, and transportation while the threat of radiation looms. The money raised from this auction will go to the Japan Sake Brewers Association to distribute the funds to those that need it most. We thank you for taking your time and money to help preserve this vital part of Japanese culture.”
Even though the silent auction has closed, another item has just be added.

This is one of my most treasured items — The French Laundry Cookbook that Thomas Keller personally signed to me. I treasure it so much that I bought a second copy to “use” or better known as mess up so that I could keep the signed copy pristine.
