On a mission to explore all aspects of the culinary world from the divinely decadent to the unbearably grotesque, Sōma Yukihira’s ultimate goal is to become a chef that can surpass his father. He’s shocked one day when his dad decides to close up the family shop for the next few years and send him to a prestige cooking school in the mean time. However, there is a catch – only less than 10% of the students graduate from this elite institution, and his father says any dream of beating him will be a joke if Sōma can’t succeed.
I love this series. Heck, it's probably one of the top-three shonen series I'm reading each week right now. The art is great and just looking at the food makes me hungry and actually want to try the things they make in it. All of the characters are fun to read and Soma's a really good shonen protagonist. This series even has, imo, one of the best training arcs I've ever read in a manga series.
There's soon-to-be 7 volumes of Soma released outside of Japan, and an anime is currently running.
