This toast is made with cheese and sake lees and was born in Kobe, the city of bread, cheese and sake. This unexpected combination creates a sweet and salty yet refined taste, which has been highly praised for its deliciousness! One of the charms of Kobe cheese toast is that the bread, cheese and sake lees used vary depending on the shop that serves it, allowing you to enjoy different flavors. It also goes great with fruit, whipped cream, red bean paste and more.

This is the original Kobe cheese toast, made by spreading a mixture of sake lees paste, fresh cream, and raisins on bread, topping it with cheese, and baking it until it is fragrant! The recipe is also available on the official website!

Using bread, which has a deep connection with Kobe, we worked together with the cooperation of not only local people but also local businesses to create ``local toast'' that can be eaten on any occasion, such as breakfast, lunch, or snacks. After spending months examining ``unique combinations with cheese toast,'' three ingredients were selected as final candidates: ``black beans,'' ``Ikanago,'' and ``Sake lees.'' We held a general election that gathered the voices of the people of Kobe for about 20 days, and out of three toasts, the one that was chosen was "Sake Kasu Cheese Toast"! Some said, ``It's an unexpected collaboration, but it's delicious,'' ``Once I tried it, I was hooked,'' and ``I think I can make it at home.'' We will develop "Sake Lees Cheese Toast" using sake lees and cheese as Kobe Cheese Toast so that it can be eaten at restaurants and coffee shops in Kobe.
