Dish – ‘Twice Cooked Teriyaki Pork Belly, Shallots and Sesame, Pairing Logic – This meaty, hearty dish follows the cooking technique of Japanese cuisinewhere it goes through an 18 hours slow-roasting process and is thengrilled right before it goes onto the plate. The sweet teriyaki sauceflavoured with star anise seeds and ginger adds to the taste of the meat.The smokey whisky with lingering sweetness and woody notes compliments this dish perfectly.
