I'm watching the anime now and I'm at the newest episode and I personally have not that much experience with cooking myself, but there are some scenes in that series, where i really have doubts if that was possible in real life.. I mean all the reactions aside, what truly got me interested are the dishes mainly. I'm not really concentrating on the hiliarious amount of time they only need to accomplish something, but more on the cooking techniques. That one enemy in the newest episode is throwing a whole chicken in the pot with nothing else than water. I don't know... I ask you chefs and experienced cuisine lovers!
