An action-packed, saucy food comedy featuring one boy’s determination to be top chef!
Soma Yukihira’s old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father’s culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school! Can Soma really cut it in a place that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress of the school that he belongs there at all?!
Dropping all pretense of being fair, the Azami administration declares that to pass the third stage of the advancement exam, Soma and the members of the resistance must each defeat a Council of Ten member. And what will everyone think when it comes to light that Dean Azami’s real motivation for overthrowing the institute is Soma’s own father, Joichiro?!
