White Curry with Salmon The restaurant Ka Ku Ra in Tokyo created this dish together with us. Bringing the mind, body and spirit in harmony with nature is the focus here. For this reason, the selection of ingredients requires precision and a vigilance for regional origins and seasonal products. The philosophy dictates that healthy eating should energise the body rather than sap it.
