“Naval gourmet” created to prevent disease

“Naval Gourmet” is a healthy diet created to prevent illness during a long maritime life. Navy curry, which was invented as a dish that could supplement nutrients that were lacking in military food at that time, is famous. In marine life, it is well known that “Friday is curry day” in order to prevent the sense of the day of the week from becoming dull. In Kure, a city related to the Navy, efforts are being made to reprint “Naval Gourmet” based on Meiji Navy cooking textbooks and recipes issued on ships.

How members of the Maritime Self-Defense Force are cooking

Faithfully reproduce curry cooked on ships

The curry eaten for lunch every Friday by many units of the Maritime Self-Defense Force is a delicious curry filled with the commitment of cooks who put the health of their members first. Kurekai curry is a very tasty initiative where you can eat curry eaten on ships belonging to the Kure Base of the Maritime Self-Defense Force at restaurants in Kure City. The cooks of each unit taught me how to make them directly at each store to faithfully reproduce the taste, and the commander said, “This is our curry!” It is a special curry that has been certified.
