Seafood Doria

Serves 4

They say that long time ago an Italian, invented this recipe in France. The food was called ‘Doria’ deriving from their family name. Whatever the story was, Doria is very popular in Japan, if you go to Italian family restaurants you will observe that almost 90% of the customers order Doria, Wow! In my perceptions, this dish is a warm dish where you get your family together and enjoy while sharing stories over dinner. This dish does bring warmth and love to the table. The risotto is quite similar as the recipe of Paella but then you add up the Bechamel sauce and the assorted cheese.

It is said it was first invented by an Italian family with the name of Doria who tried to represent the Italian flag (with tomatoes, cucumbers and chicken) in this recipe they first cooked in Paris. It was first prepared in Japan in Yokohoma by a French cuisine chef from Switzerland at the New Grand Hotel in 1925! (Shizuoka Gourmet)
