Yume-iro Pâtissière, Shokugeki no Souma Recommendations
Although Yumeiro is targeted to a younger audience than Shokugeki, both revolve around food competitions and friendship, and make you want to eat a lot of delicious sparkling food! You'll learn a lot about culinary and both are very enjoyable as long as you love food and hard working characters.
Similar in both anime revolves around cooking/baking foods, as well training to become better at which they want to specialize in (yume-iro as a patissiere, and in shokugeki as a chef). As-well, as having both anime explain how they created their food, and how the judge explains what they feel when they tasted the food created.
They both share comedy - school-life, and explanation of how they created such food. So if you enjoy one of these anime, you'll surely enjoy the other.
They're both ooking anime and they both encourage teamwork and friendship. the only differences is that Shokugeki no Souma has an Ecchi feel and Yumeiro Patissiere is just cokking pastries :3
- both have food competitions
- both are set in a high-class academy where the students all make food
- both main characters were disliked by the students when they first entered
- both main characters are seen as "commoners"
The two anime are extremely similar however Shokugeki no Souma is targeted to an older audience because of it's slight ecchi and comedy whereas Yumeiro Patissiere is more kid-friendly, especially because the characters are all still very young.
While both animes are about cooking and food, Yume-iro Patissiere is more towards baking, along with a bit of magic. Both animes involve the main character overcoming the obstacles they have towards cooking/baking, using some kind of special 'power' or sense they have from experiences at home. These two animes, while both having some kind of romance on the side, have a lot of competition between characters - though Shokugeki no Souma is more competitive than Yume-iro Patissiere.
Both of these kept me hooked all the way until the very end, and so I think if you enjoyed Shokugeki no Souma, you should watch Yume-iro Patissiere.
They both involve going to a cooking school and participating in cooking battles
