Texture and details of Shokugeki no Soma
The anime series follows the story of Soma Yukihira, a fifteen-year-old boy whose dream is to become a chef at the family diner and overcome the extraordinary culinary skills of his father Jōichirō whom he challenges almost daily in the preparation of recipes, but systematically losing.
After completing middle school, Soma is enrolled without his knowledge by his father at the Tōtsuki high school, an elite cooking school where only 10% of students manage to graduate after having honed their culinary skills through lessons and, above all, very hard and highly competitive culinary battles.
