Najika is a great cook and likes to make meals for the people she loves. But something is missing from her life. When she was a child, she met a boy who touched her heart—and now Najika is determined to find him. The only clue she has is a silver spoon that leads her to the prestigious Seika Academy. At Seika she meets two brothers Daichi and Sora, could one of them be the boy from her childhood?

I saw this manga at the bookstore, and was intrigued enough by the cover to pick up a volume to give it a try.

Older now, Najika lives in an orphanage, and she is accepted to the best cooking school in...fictional Japan. Though she doesn't want to leave, her caretaker insists she read more
