Cooking Master Boy by Etsushi Ogawa

Etsushi Ogawa’s “Cooking Master Boy” is a manga about a Chinese teenage orphan who has set out to be the Iron Chef of his time—19th century China—in order to continue running his family restaurant together with his older sister. Along the way, he meets different opponents, challenges and characters in his quest. I understand that the recipes featured can actually be followed. (This is as far as I can appreciate this bit of information as I do not even know how to fry an egg.) So if you’re into cooking manga and Chinese food, you might want to check what’s cooking here!
