As well as being one of the most famous drinks in Japan, Sake is also widely used as a cooking ingredient, just like the use of red or white wine in European cooking. It's made of rice and water and is made with a brewing process similar to that of beer making, although we have come to know it as rice wine.
Sake can be used in loads of different dishes; stir-fries, soups, broths, marinades, stews, when cooking Japanese rice.
