Particularly original in the evolution of its story and provided with an enticing animation, the series Food Wars has established itself as a true benchmark of the genre. Although it is unpretentious, the tension of the multiple chef duels, the charisma of its characters and the execution of the recipes, always more ambitious, make this anime a little nugget!
His efficient and uninhibited humor provokes giggles, as easily as these dishes make your mouth water.

A diversity of dishes which has also given rise to the writing of several cookbooks for fans of the work, as well as for the simple curious, apprentice cooks. Enough to encourage us all to cook!
