Cooking Masterboy



Was watching this old anime again for the past 2 days. What? Watch anime also about cooking?? Bet you're thinking that I'm really that bored. Haha... Cooking Masterboy is about a young boy named Mao who goes on an adventure to seek new culinary skills. And he's determined to follow his mother's footsteps and become the best chef in China. Pretty interesting anime. It has good humor, action (chefs competing each other) and features lots and lots of food plus whoever that taste Mao's cooking is filled with estacy. Practically every episode (total of 52 episodes) there's at least a dish!!

What I like best about this anime is that every single food is explained and drawn in detailed. Food in this anime is even associated with poetry, morales, geography, medicinal values and history.




Imagine cutting up a fish and you see CHINA!

Like any other anime, the characters are usually obsessed with what they do. Mao has very deep knowledge with food, ingredients and food science. You'll see various wok acrobatics and almost impossible cutting and cooking techniques. Tossing the cow (yea... whole COW!) high high up and with just a swing or two, it's cut up beautifully in tiny pieces! Wah lau!

One note though, be prepared to feel hungry after every episode!
