Addicted to Food - Addicted to Curry - Netflix
Addicted to Curry (華麗なる食卓, Karē naru Shokutaku) is a cooking manga series, containing full professional recipes for all dishes at the end of each chapter, written and illustrated by Kazuki Funatsu, published in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump between 2001 and 2012. A sequel under the same name is currently in serialization. Due to its regularly included ecchi content the manga is seen as controversial by some people (sometimes marked as adult or mature in manga forums), and it cannot be marketed towards children and teenagers, as is common for many comedy comics in the West. Those are the likely reasons of the lack of wider publication or praise for this manga series in many countries, such as the UK or the USA (in opposite to other cooking manga such as Kitchen Princess or Yakitate Japan).
