Thank you for this! It is a charming and interesting intersection of some of my favorite things: cooking, comics, and redefining gender norms. Also, I've been really into slice-of-life narratives. Can't wait to read the manga (I can never seem to prioritize my TV watching the way I prioritize my comic reading ).
