    Episode 1

    The first dish is toshikoshi soba eaten on New Year's Eve. Make the soup, then make tempura shrimp, and then the noodles and other stuff, and a good luck item for a prosperous new year is ready to eat. Shirou makes it quite simple and easy to understand how to prepare this dish unlike with Soma, whose explanations are complicated and something that only elite chefs such as himself would be able to understand. While it doesn't amount to anything substantial, it does the job for a half-length episode that airs once a month or so. Anyway, that made me want to try and make that dish, though I probably don't have the patience and precision to do it.

      Re: Episode 1

      Of all the Fate spinoffs we've been getting in these past few years, this is the one ufotable animates. Granted, it is the one closest to the main canon, albeit a seemingly altered version in which all the characters and relationships can somehow exist with everything being peaceful, everyone being alive (maybe even Kiritsugu?), and no animosity among any of them.

      It might be even funnier if this was as ultra-detailed as ufotable's main installments in the franchise, but the soft, warm aesthetic they use here certainly fits better with the theme of comfort food.

      I know I'm a slave to this franchise, but I've been doing my best to back away from things that really aren't worth it even if they are tied to a franchise like this, so I probably won't watch anymore. It's fairly borderline, so I won't make any promises right now, although I will say this isn't the Fate series I wished we got this season.

        Episode 2

        Even without the spear, Lancer is still a strong dude. This version is just working at the fish market. So the meal this time is salmon, and nothing is more perfect than that and some sake. Of course, the only sake for Shirou is what he uses in cooking the salmon.

          Episode 3

          The dish for March is chirashizushi, and this time Illya has come over to enjoy a meal cooked by Shirou. She even went the extra mile by putting on a kimono on with this visit. And Rin also helped make a little something of her own. It's all about the rice as Shirou put an awful lot of stuff in it. Quite a delicious way to welcome the spring season, and while Shirou felt out of place with all of those girls there, somebody needs to cook for everybody.

            It's off to the Ryudou temple where unlike in the Fate series, Shirou doesn't have to battle anybody. Here, he is making a delivery, and with plenty of fresh greens around the place, he makes a BLT sandwich. Alright, more like a BLE as instead of tomatoes, he is using eggs in them while for lettice, those spring greens are used. Kuzuki and Caster are quite friendly in this world and they get to enjoy something that Shirou made, and he's doing an excellent job again. Great times all-around.

              Episode 5

              This month's dish is bamboo shoot gratin, made with bamboos that have been carefully soaked and prepared so that it doesn't get bitter. Once again, Shirou's expertise in cooking is put to great use with Sakura being quite a great help in the kitchen in getting all the ingredients prepared. That was such an amazing dish that heck, even Shinji can't get enough of it, though he will never know that it was Shirou who made it. But in this world, he's not a threat to do anything like what he did in the FSN series.

                And now, Shirou is making the dish that got him into cooking, the Hamburg steak for June's entree of choice. He was having quite a great time making it as a kid, and as such the childhood memories return with this new dish. Everybody is simply amazed at how he managed to turn a simple dish into something worth being excited about. Taiga sure is quite the moody one there, but she has always been that way.

                  Episode 7

                  Summer is in full swing, and that means time to play in the water, and for that it's off to the indoor pool with Saber and Rin. After going on some water slides, they play beach volleyball where they run into Lancer and Archer, who are part-time workers there. Things get quite heated when those two servants use their full power there, all while Saber doesn't hold back, but she didn't stand a chance as it's two servants against one. After all that, Shirou makes some ochazuke using the broth he had made ahead of time and put in the fridge. That was just a wild and crazy game of volleyball there going to show that Saber never backs down. Shirou had exactly the right remedy for a long day like that.

                    This time, it's Rin who is doing the cooking. While she's not exactly the cook that Shirou is, she's quite a good one herself. It's just another typical day at the Tohsaka residence where Shirou and Sakura are over to help keep the place nice and tidy seeing that her place is quite big. Her fried rice dish is simply amazing going to show that she can cook for herself. It definitely is a nice change of pace seeing Rin being the head chef this time around.

                      Episode 9

                      Medea is now featured as she's living a quiet life with Souichiro at the Ryuudo Temple. She wants to impress him with a dish, but there's just one problem in that Medea is a terrible cook. So the solution is to ask Shirou to help her out as she helps Shirou prepare a dish featuring mackerel pike. Even with the recipe, her attempt at cooking the dish wasn't exactly as appetizing as the way Shirou made them, but at least it's a huge improvement over the toxic stuff he normally puts out, and Souichiro is quite appreciative. Those two are really close to each other, and what happened with them in the TV series was pretty tragic, but here everything is great even if Medea's cooking skills need a facelift.

                        Episode 10

                        And now it's October, which means culture festival time. And it's quite a taxing time for the students as they are spending long nights getting ready for this annual event, which means Shirou won't be able to have dinner at home with Altria. But he still finds some time in his schedule to come home, shop, and cook something that can be enjoyed even when cold in karaage. Quite an amazing idea that was to make fried chicken bits as its taste lasts for hours.

                          And this time, it's Shirou's future self that's doing the cooking as in this world, Archer is running a cafe. Saber visits and orders the omrice, all while Archer's master Rin makes a secret visit to the cafe. Just like in the FSN series, they are acting like master and servant there. Archer is quite a capable cook himself, which is not exactly hard to figure out given everything that happened in Unlimited Blade Works. It's good to see other characters doing the cooking as Archer shows of his amazing culinary skills.

                            There's just no better way to spend Christmas than to have it at the Einzbern mansion where Illya's maids are quite helpful in making this party a success. Shirou pulled his weight as well with that roast beef dish, and while it's cheap meat that he's preparing for someone who is used to high-end stuff, the preparation was perfect going to drive home Soma's message that it's all about skill. And Berserker really searched far and wide for the perfect Christmas tree. That sure was excellent the way the party went down.
