What Did You Eat Yesterday? Vol. 1

What do you get if you mix a slice of life LGBT story with a gourmet manga? A recipe for success in the form of What Did You Eat Yesterday?, the series by Fumi Yoshinaga. Depicting the daily life of Shiro Kakei, gourmand, frugal shopper and lawyer, and his partner, hair stylist Kenji Yabuki, this manga features a series of vignettes following their exploits at work and home. Most chapters consist of a simple story, like Shiro reminiscing about his fellow trainees, or Kenji encountering an old colleague with a guilty confession, bookended by shopping, cooking and eating that day's meal. If a lengthy depiction of a recipe, complete with measurements, isn't your thing, you should skip this title, but for anyone with an interest in Japanese cuisine, this is a fascinating manga indeed!

A delicious day by day account of the adventures of a Japanese gourmand!
SCORE: 4/5
