    yes.. indeed.. he makes delicious food using cheap ingredient and material :D
    so he is genius..

    he is genius because he has 12 year experience on the kitchen.. never give up and a hard worker .

    I would say he's becoming one.
    cooking to these people is like a sport,
    and there's so many variations of it.
    Chinese, japanese, american, french, italian, indian, mexican, spanish, and then not even considering desserts.
    He learns at an incredible rate, but all the people at tootsuki have been there since middle school and he only joined in highschool.
    so I think he's just going to keep amassing cooking knowledge and be considered a genius by his 3rd year for sure

    omg really!!!! Aah i wanna read!!
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 17, 2017 ---
    Yup that's what i'm getting at as well!! :) unlike the other seats of the elite council, who have some kind of latent ability or upbringing that helps them in their cooking, soma had no such ability and he was brought up in a casual diner, not those fancy places and he can be considered on par with those geniuses because of his hard work not because he has the natural talent. :)

    Genius and hardwork go together.

    Anybody in real life who has ever been a genius has worked hard.


    Whats interesting about "Geniuses" in manga, often they work hard as well. IE, Sasuke who had been called a genius trained pretty much everyday and tried to make himself better everyday.

    So Soma is 100% a genius.

    Yeah, I mean you can clearly see Saiba trying his hardest and working out recipes.
    He might of started out with more skill, but it's not like your just born a cooking genius.

    Of course he is.... Joichiro taught him basic diner cooking... It's not like he was training him to be an elite.... Soma made it to where he is right now off his own talent....
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 30, 2017, Original Post Date: Mar 30, 2017 ---
    Every other character in the series has basically gotten their specific craft beaten into them..... Soma just takes what he remembers from cooking at the diner, and puts his own spin on it....

    Genius and hardwork go hand in hand... Soma does a lot of trial and error always, and he's able to make up recipes on the spot,
    I'd be surprised if the first round wasn't a clean sweep for the rebels

    Hard work beats talent
    The risotto was something he knew would work because of how much he has tried out different things through trial and error just like he did with the honey in his and Megumis first assignment

    :playful: "Geniuses" is defined and understood differently by different people.

    For me, "genius" relates with both "creativity" and "amazement". Whatever it is that you've created or do, it have to be something amazing to be regarded as one. Most importantly is the desire to be creative, and to remain creating amazing things to retain that "genius" brand.

    Pretty much there are two different kind of "geniuses":
    Natural geniuses, creating amazing things seems so natural for these kind of people, as if they're gifted, often they're able to do so early as they can when young. They have to continue working hard being creative and sharpening through learning to retain this gifts of theirs or they can eventually lost it, or their capability becoming dull. Eg. Many of the Shokugeki characters are in this category.

    Hard-working geniuses, they start late and poor early, but as long as they have that hunger to create and learn, for sure will be rewarded with the ability to create amazing things. It's important to have a strong heart and mental state, because people love to bring you down (psychologically to make themselves better) in things that you're not good.. yet. It's also easy to get depress and demotivated towards giving up. Eg. Souma, love the plot and story-line of this manga.

    Basically everyone can become geniuses, while some comes naturally, others have to earn it, yet mentality determines success in achieving/retaining it.

    She already loves his eggs. :kappa:

    Soma is a genius through hard work. He literally failed at everything in the beginning before he figured out the solution to almost every single one of them and how they work by the time he came to Totsuki. He's the embodiment of being successful by going through failure first.
