Well, I've been watching the drama for Kami no Shizuku and I have really wanted to read some of the source materiel. Problem is, I'm having troubles finding any scanlations caught up with the series. :-\

I've read the 8 published volume of Kami no Shizuku and found them entertaining even though I don't drink wine. Kami no shuzuku became popular in France obviously because of the subject it deals with and thanks to newspapers and TV stations. Many friends offered this title to their parents because they knew that it would interest them and show them that manga is not only about sex, violence and usual cliché.
Sommelier is another interesting but not famous manga about wine.

My favorite manga about food is the one shot Kodoku no Gurume, each time I read it it makes me crave for good japanese cuisine.

Seems interesting.
I've been looking for another manga like Bartender. I guess I'll add this one to my PtR list :]

While I understand it's popularity in France, I just couldn't get into this title. Not big into wine I guess. Nice sparkly covers though.

I think Kinou Nani Tabeta? is a better food/cooking centric work. :3
