So he transferred his son to the Tōtsuki Tea House Culinary Academy, an elite school where only 10% of students graduated. A new challenge for Sōma that his father gave him in order to hone his skills and learn from the experiences that he will live.
I'm a fan of culinary anime and I find this anime really well done. It presents innovative and creative dishes, the dishes, ingredients and techniques are well explained. We see the characters cook, prepare their food and struggle to achieve Excellence. It's not like some anime where magically the dishes appears while we see no cooking. In addition, the story is full of intrigue, duel, challenge ... we are surprised by all the twists that there may be and each episode makes you want to see the next.
