Dishes of rice baked with cheese (eg gratin) were introduced to Japan by a Swiss chef and come under the term 'yoshoku’ meaning Western food!

In this indulgent Curry Legend version we've got sticky, seasoned sushi rice, topped with a delicious Japanese chicken curry, finished with grilled cheese!

Didn't have enough chicken so put in baby sweetcorn and peas in lieu. It cooked so easily , smelt gorgeous and the taste was perfect. Bring on the next month's new recipe!!!

Yummy, it sounds delicious with baby sweetcorn and peas.. sweet (Spicery) dreams are made of cheese!


Delicious 'extras' recipe that we've been meaning to try for a while...and even better reheated the next day (extra crispy rice)!

Look at that melted cheese - yum! And isn't it always the case that it tastes even better the next day?!
