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?!
The Régiment de Cuisine has begun, and with the weight of their expelled classmates’ hopes on their shoulders, Soma, Isshiki and Megishima step up to the plate first for the resistance! In true Soma style, Soma picks soba as his card’s theme ingredient, the very ingredient his opponent, Nene Kinokuni, specializes in! How can this very unlucky first-year possibly win now?
