    Episode 1

    So it begins with Morina stumbling upon an Italian restaurant. Working as a waitress there doesn't require learning Italian or trying to understand the terminology of Italian cooking as Maro was trying to make Morina do seeing that he's a chef prodigy. Anyway, it's a good thing Ruri is there to keep Maro in check seeing that he likes to go overboard and has such an intimidating personality. That was a tasty way to spend four minutes there even if there wasn't much on the table here, so I'll keep coming back for the time being.

      That was somewhat cute, but naturally empty and forgettable.

        It's fun seeing some terms I only know at this point because of Shokugeki no Soma.

        This one was cute in a shoujo-ish way, so I'll be back for some more. Interesting to see the original author is Watanabe Atsuko who is known more as an animator (I've liked her character design style), and she actually is involved as an animator adapting her own work here (looks like she's even credited for in-between animation).

          Episode 2

          Here comes the head chef Kirihide, and he just can't stand the sight of seeing sauce lost from his masterpiece even it if it just a little bit. He sure is passionate about cooking seeing that he just feels too old and gray without having any pachino tomatoes to cook his dishes with. The workers there continue to really be something.

            Episode 3

            Now the featured dish is tiramisu, made by Ei who is in charge of making the desserts at the restaurant. Those guys sure love to tease Morina seeing that she thinks Ei is so talented that he could work at a high-end restaurant, but that's all just a lie. At least somebody is if what Maro and Ei say are opposites. So after last week's episode was about an entree, it only figures that it is followed up with a dessert being served.

              Episode 4

              Here comes Sara, the granddaughter of a well-known chef at a hilltop Japanese restaurant, and she's got quite a nasty attitude when it comes to Italian cuisine for some reason. But she seems to have enjoyed that caponata after first giving it to Morina to test it out. Sara sure did make an entrance there all while her grandfather is really something.

                If Morina wants to become a good cook, simply following the recipe isn't going to cut it as Maro is pointing out that cuisine is a science. Kirihide is also letting her know what constitutes cuisine as well as that involves doing something with the ingredients that are available in the region. Pretty much, it's all about Morina learning what cuisine is all about, but of course cooking is another matter entirely.

                  Heh, Morina finally snaps at Sara's harsh criticism of Italian cuisine. Though it seems like Sara has gotten quite smitten over how passionate Morina got. Definitely curious to see what happens when she shows up again.

                    Episode 6

                    Who knew that she would want to take up Italian cooking after everything that happened that started when she punched the wall out of anger? Morina had decided to quit her job as an apology for causing trouble for everybody, but the restaurant values her so much that they just couldn't take that decision lying down, so of course they went and got her back. That certainly is something Morina can strive for after all she went through with this job.

                      Episode 7

                      So Maro and Sara go to the same elementary school, which explains why they know each other very well. Having committed to becoming a chef someday, Morina's first attempt is to make something for Sara, and while the caprese salad looks anything but appetizing, Sara totally approves of the taste as somehow, Morina managed to pull through. So in looking to get better at Italian cooking, Ei offers to help her out seeing that Kirihide just isn't motivated while Maro is still learning. Things are quite hectic around the restaurant when it is up to Morina to cook up something even though she's a total beginner at this.

                        Heh, Sara is still as harsh as even when it comes to Maro, now with exchanging bentou at school... I love how she's gotten so soft for Morina, though.

                          Sara is back sooner than expected, and this time Morina's friend from school, Rii, and the writer with the pen name of Riga Tony (named after the pasta, obviously) join in. So Morina needs to make something quickly seeing that she said she would do just that. So she makes the Zuppa Inglese, which means English Soup, and it's not a soup at all, but a dessert. Sara's grandfather is so in love with the dish that he wants Morina for his restaurant. Pretty funny seeing how everything went down.

                            So Morina works for a day at the Japanese restaurant owned by Sara's grandfather, and that place is pretty huge. As much of a good time Sara is having, she belongs to Festa. Working there did give her some ideas, but her cooking skills need lots of work seeing that the batter fell off the fritter dish. In the end, Sara's grandfather realizes that she belongs with Trattoria Festa, so it's back to working on Italian cuisine. There was just no taking her away from that place in the end, but it was a good time for her to experience something different.

                              It's time for the summer festival, and everybody at Trattoria Festa is in the mood there bringing out all sorts of different food items from the restaurant. And then Sara challenges Ei to a cooking duel after she insults the restaurant, and Ei's panna cotta is on a whole different level. Sara ought to know better than that seeing that while she knows cooking, she pales in comparison to a veteran chef that Ei is.
