This is one dish that has become a staple of Swiss Cuisine even so it is as un-Swiss as it can get. It is a Chicken Curry in a Rice Ring with poached fruit (often out of the can), a dollop of cream and then toasted almond......./divdiv style="text-align: justify;"br //divdiv style="text-align: justify;"Swiss??? Yes it is. It has its origins in 1952 when Moevenpick put it on their menu for the first time.....and the rest is history. This dish is so common in Switzerland that even in the chef training, the apprenticeship, we had to learn how to do it and many restaurants still have it on the menu./divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LZDQkImVHU/UD0PQYj328I/AAAAAAAABcg/h2HV6UEYLBk/s1600/IMG0427.JPG" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="212" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LZDQkImVHU/UD0PQYj328I/AAAAAAAABcg/h2HV6UEYLBk/s320/IMG0427.JPG" width="320" //a/divdiv style="text-align: justify;"The only thing the Rice Casimir has in common with a good Indian Curry is.....Curry Powder, but that's it.
