The original 1997-1998 Chuuka Ichiban! series can be said as the OG to cooking shows like the commons we all see with similar shows pop up and got popular in their own right (i.e. Shokugeki no Soma), and it's considered a classic for anyone who wants to get introduced to the cooking gourmet genre.

That said, I think the show took itself a little too serious. Because no matter how tense things get, ...
