Works remarkably well as paired reading with Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food, which I also finished this past week. As always, the series makes me want to cook. On the other hand, I won't rate it higher because I can't get past the fact that the entire manga is basically infodump, infodump, infodump, with only the sketchiest efforts toward actual story or characterization. Not to mention the fact that the drawings of people are often suspiciously out of proportion. (The tiny heads! They make me LOL.)
