Anime Recommendation: Food Wars

Kira and I have been watching some anime recently, when Michelle has to go to work and Kira has all her homework done. One that we pretty much stumbled upon is Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, and we're really enjoying it. The premise is that Yukihira Soma (the guy on the right) has grown up in his father's diner, but is now ready to attend high school. His father shuts up the diner and sends Soma to a prestigious school,  Tōtsuki Culinary Academy, where Soma finds that he might not know everything.

This has your standard anime goofiness, but it also tackles some serious issues. One of the main things that Kira enjoys is that the characters always describe, one way or another, what's gone into certain dishes and why. The reasoning and history behind the choices of ingredients, as well as the competitive nature of the school, makes for some fascinating viewing. If you like to cook, then I would recommend this series.

I'd love to hear the thoughts of those that have watched it. We're only part way through the second of the three seasons, as of this writing, but it's really holding up.
