I liked this volume a lot! I like the realistic relationships. Of course the love isn't quite the same after being together for, what. Three years? I don't think Shiro is being mean, I think he's just like a lot of other adults who get into long term relationships/ marriages/ or common law relations. I'm still loving how their relationship is playing, so that I find myself skimming over the recipes to get to more slice of life story lines. However, some of the recipes have definitely peaked my ...more

Volume 3 offers more of the same endearing mixture of food preparation and eating with a middle-aged gay couple living their lives. Shiro interacts more with his parents and deals with some deep issues related to them. My favorite chapter equates Shiro's grocery shopping on a budget and Kenji's securing of a hairstylist client to big game hunting.

Very entertaining, amusing, and filled with wondrous food descriptions. My only complaint is Shiro's reason for staying with Kenji, but hey, it's in c

Closer to 3.5 than 3, as I do feel this is an improvement over the first two volumes. I feel the series is much stronger when it focuses on their personal lives over their professional ones, which I think this volume does. I came away feeling I knew much more about what makes them and their relationship work, compared to the first two volumes where I felt I still knew nothing about them.

Oddly I've kept on with this series through book three, even though I am not interested in cooking (and in fact, the preparation of these dishes looks exhausting to me...I guess I like to spend more time eating than cooking!). And yet I read through the recipe portions anyway. It's obviously the art and language. And certainly the culture. How individuals exist within their cultural expectations. The characters are intriguing to me, even charming. I don't know if I will continue, but I won't NOT ...more

Cuma Fumi Yoshinaga yang bisa membuat kehidupan sehari-hari sepasang gay berumur 40-an menjadi cerita yang menarik. Padahal hampir setiap bab kita hanya mengikuti kegiatan Kakei yang (di luar kerjaannya sebagai pengacara) setiap hari sibuk memikirkan menu yang cocok dengan bahan baku yang sedang diskon plus adegan memasaknya. Tapi seirit-iritnya Kakei, hidangan makan malam buatannya tetap selalu kelihatan lezat!

This volume eliminated any doubts I had lingering from volume 2! Shiro not only show's his nice/caring side, but we also get to see more of Kenji, and discover that in many ways he is just as big a foodie as Shiro! It was great to see more depth to these characters, see more about their relationship dynamic, and see more than just the food (which still looks delicious!)

Or 2.5 stars? Wow, I'm even considering giving this even less stars because the way Shiro talked about his relationship with Kenji really rubbed me the wrong way. To some extent it was like this in the previous volumes, too. I was wondering if he really loved him or just stayed with him for convenience but here he admits it, really.

I enjoyed this Volume a little more because Shiro showed a little more emotion for Kenji. What I didn't like was that Shiro couldn't show him directly. Still looking forward to reading the next Volumes.

Sometimes you need something as beautiful as Kinou Nani Tabeta to remind you of the simpler things in life that makes living meaningful: the act of deliberation, reflection, and enjoyment of food and company.

i was surprised by how much i liked the characters this volume. it's not that i disliked them before -- they're fine -- but i wasn't actively drawn to them. i feel like i understood their relationship a bit better now though! and i enjoy shiro's pragmatism. as ever: yum, food. 4 stars

I'm really enjoying the series. The characters are interesting and the relationship between the main characters seems realistic. And I wish I could eat everything off the page.

The recipes are still as tasty looking as ever and the relationship between the two leads is both heart felt and realistic.

In this volume, we learn a bit more about Kenji, and we discover how our two main characters will be celebrating New Year's Eve. And of course, there's a ton of descriptive food and recipes.
In this volume this reader did leave with the impression there is more to their relationship than food. still not involved enough to want to own the series but i will keep a lookout for volume 4.

Still loving the recipes and lovely food, but loving even more the slice-of-life relationships and their development. Shiro has a soul, after all!

Hahahahaha, the thrill of the hunt! Shiro cracks me up when he goes into hunter mode while shopping for bargains. It also makes me want to cook something. now.

Kakei made a lot of interesting dishes, including crepes for brunch. Yabuki also cooked in this volume. I like how Kakei gets so intense about saving money on food.
