Zodiac of the Month

Pisces

February, 20 – March, 20

Philosophy
I wish

Pisceans are generous, caring, and kind. However, they tend to be more concerned about other people's problems than their own. Pisceans are not decisive persons and may change their mind many times. They are also followers, but they do not always choose good leaders. Because of its good qualities, the Pisces is popular with many types of people, but when it is secretive it drives these friends away.
The Pisces enjoys good relations with members of the opposite sex – and those enjoy the company of Pisceans. They tend to have too many love affairs so they are advised to control themselves. Too much of a good thing can be upsetting. Maintaining balance and harmony is good and also very important for the Pisces.

Aries

March, 21 – April, 20

Philosophy
I can

Arians love freedom, and they will accept any challenge. The Aries will get impatient if its ideas do not work out immediately and as expected. Arians are unwilling to follow someone else's suggestions, especially if they do not make sense to them. They often have excess energy which can make them aggressive. Arians are brave leaders who express care and concern for all they lead. However, an Arian as a follower is rare, and can be troublesome. Because the Aries is open and honest, it will make energetic and generous friends. Arians have trouble compromising which can lead to problems in otherwise smooth friendships.
Arians are extremely friendly and charming. They get bored very soon in their affairs because they also prefer intelligent and versatile partners. The opposite sex finds the Aries fascinating because of its beauty consciousness and adventurous nature.

Wine & Food

Broiled Eeel and ’09 Bertagna Corton Charlemagne

Eels are known for its abundant fat, but Betagna Corton Charlemagne, with its solid body and rich fruitness, would be able to cope with eels and further create a wonderful marriage.
I think most of people eat eels in KABAYAKI style in which eels are broiled with sweetened soy sauce, but simply broiled eels so-called SHIRAYAKI tastes amazing with wasabi. SHIRAYAKI from Nodaiwa located in Azabu is forever my favourite. Since KABAYAKI has soy sauce, it goes well with red wines, but with SHIRAYAKI, please match it with a white that has a solid body and well-crafter fruitiness. Corton Charlemagne is a great example.
Just a sip of ‘09 Bertagna Corton Charlemagne would explain everything without any words. Please try and explore this amazing wine.Spiciness coming from Wasabi and fruitiness from Corton Charlemagne accentuates each other on the tongue and become integrated.
For Wasabi, I would like you to grate real Wasabi, but if it is not available, I would like to recommend Aragiri Wasabi (roughly grated Wasabi) from Marui. This Aragiri Wasabi has slices of Japanese Wasabi stems lightly flavoured with soy sauce. You can enjoy the authentic taste of Wasabi as well as crispy texture. This can also be very spicy, so please do not use too much.

 I would like to introduce another dish that goes well with ‘09 Bertagna Corton Charlemagne. The fruitiness of the wine accentuates fresh aroma coming from Japanese pepper leaves. Round yet pronounced fruitiness can easily compete with fatty sea breams.
As for the thickness of SASHIMI, if the wine has a solid structure and fruitiness, I would suggest to cut it thicker. If it were way too thin, wine would overwhelm the flavor. The thicker slice would create smooth texture when flavor mingles with wine on tongue.
