Synopsis

Fujiwara Momoe is the daughter of a rich family. She has never had any worries, had an easy and luxurious life. She loves good cooking. Her carefree life ends when her father dies from a heart attack. She now has to take care for herself and her mother and this involves also cooking the meals. Unfortunately, she never had to cook, so her cooking is awful. She starts working at a French restaurant where she becomes a cook under the chef. She falls in love with the chef, but he only considers her as an apprentice.

One of the major reasons I love reading this series over and over again is for its refreshing concept and provocative (at the time it was published) message that girls can be major players in the food industry.Our main character, Momoe is very much like a shounen hero-she overcomes trials that will either make or break her, and befriends damaged individuals most would give up on.
However, being a young and beautiful woman presents a unique challenge; because of her appearances, can she overcome sexism and be treated as a chef, before being treated as a woman? This tackles a very real, but rarely spoken read more

This is actually one of the best josei I've read so far. The main heroine has a sensitive side as well as a funny personality. The storyline is pretty realistic and entertaining at the same time. Although the art gets on my nerves at times because it has a very cartoon-like way of showing funny expressions, it is very suitable to the more serious scenes of the story. It is definetelly worth reading.

Momoe is inspired to become a cook, especially after eating at a particular little restaurant, and remembering the comforting taste from her childhood. She figures she can kill two birds with one stone, she can earn money to support herself and her mother, while at the same time fulfilling her dream.
Unfortunately Momoe sucks at cooking. Besides which, the cooks she wants to hire her is grumpy and anti-social. Her only talents seems to read more
