Cooking and Food
Oishinbo


If you like food, and you like graphic novels, you'll enjoy the tasty and addictive volumes in the long-running manga series Oishinbo ("The Gourmet"). Each book follows a food journalist through the kitchens and restaurants of Japan as he strives to create the "ultimate menu." This series comes across as Iron Chef written as a soap opera, with a dash of Julia Child's enjoyment of good food. These books are not only fun to read, but they'll teach you a little something about Japanese cuisine and culture, too.

There are 5 books in this aisle.
