Of Sake and Crab Cakes

The Sake:

Now, this is one club I’d love to be a member of — Ozumo Restaurant in Oakland’s sake “300club.”

The restaurant invites patrons to purchase one of eight different 300ml bottles selected by Director of Sake Jessica Furui each time when visiting the restaurant. Ozumo will then record each purchase. When a customer has tried all eight club selections, they will receive a complimentary 720ml bottle of Ozumo’s “Seitoku” signature junmai ginjo sake.

Moreover, each time a customer orders a bottle of club sake, they will receive a small card containing information about the sake and brewery, plus a map of Japan showing where the brewery is located.

There is no cost to join the club, no food purchase is required and club selections will be changed every six months.

Kampai to that.

The Crab Cakes:

If you don’t want to pick through all the shells yourself, Scoma’s of San Francisco has made it easier to get your crab cake fix.

The 45-year-old restaurant at Fisherman’s Wharf just debuted a new line of “San Francisco-Style Crab Cakes,” available frozen in Northern California stores such as Costco, Mollie Stone’s, Draeger’s, Paradise Foods, Falletti Foods, Twain HarteMarket, Diablo Foods, Mill Valley Market, O’Brien’s Markets, and select Whole Foods.

The entree-size (3.5-ounce) crab cakes come two to a box for $12.99. You also can get a box of eight mini ones (1-ounce) for $13.99. Each box comes with Scoma’s famous Remoulade sauce base (just add mayo to it).

The crab cakes can be heated in minutes either in the oven or in a saute pan on the stovetop.

    Crab cakes are my weakness and good quality ones that can be heated in the oven sound divine! :D

    Those crab cakes sound really good, but I don’t live in Northern California. I wonder how long it will take to make it all the way out to Michigan so i can try them

  8. 8

    The Whole Foods in the Bay Area does not have it! :( …I was so disappointed!

  9. 9

    Tigerfish: The publicist says the crab cakes are at the Whole Foods stores in Campbell, Los Altos, Petaluma and Monterey. Hope that helps!

    I love the idea of this sake club, it makes for such a much more communal feel.
