Synopsis

Ye Jiayao is a young and talented cook who dreams of becoming a renowned chef one day. As luck would have it, she's magically transported back in time to Imperial China, and in the body of an extremely useless girl. Ye Jiayao is immediately kidnapped and held for ransom, but she manages to use her wits (and her sense of humor) to get whatever she wants.

I really love this!

I think this is a great representation of a super light-hearted donghua/anime, almost slice of life, with a bits of plot here and there, but can still be watched at ease. The animation is also gorgeous and full of life. It 100% will make you watchers hungry too! The story is pretty mediocre, some twists in some parts, but it's still adorable.

Mixed Feelings
The overall premise, an award winning chef gets isekai'ed to ancient China and has to survive and aspires to become a renown chef in the ancient world, is fine. But every thing about this could be done a bit better.

The story is filled with leaps of logic, where the MC gets access to cooking in ways that are totally implausible.

The budget put into animation quality and graphical quality is pretty self explanatory, too bad the source material holds the art back.

Art & Sound 8/10
The food and cooking is fantastic, with appropriate musical accompaniment. My only complaint is that there isn't enough of it. They barely manage a cooking scene an episode and its really the only reason to watch this anime.

Writing 2/10
Really just nothing much in the writing at all. The first arc is ...
