Smash together Fate and Food Wars and you’ll get Today's Menu for the Emiya Family. Since I’m usually more into action and adventure genres this manga was a new experience in many shapes and forms. Volume 1 was an enjoyable page-turner as it contains a relaxing, slice of life theme while we get to join Saber and Shiro for dinner. The artwork is absolutely stunning and incredibly detailed, so much so that the food looked mouth-watering and good enough to lick right off the page. (Don’t worry.. I didn’t actually lick the page and I wouldn’t recommend as the manga gods would rain down supreme judgment upon anyone who tries.) As there isn’t too much story found within the first volume, I hope to see more storyline development in the upcoming chapters.
The added recipes were a unique and delicious treat which allows you to try cooking the same meals as seen within the story. (I personally haven’t tried and probably won’t, since I’ve recently discovered I have the ability to burn water.) So if you’re feeling up for a nice relaxing story that contains friends, family, and food - I would highly recommend this series to you. Of course if you’re also into series such as Food Wars and are familiar with the Fate series, this would be a delicious addition to your collection. So get cookin’! (Even though it looks delicious, please do not cook this book as it is not edible.)
TYPE-MOON's Fate/ series is renowned for its unique take on the fantasy genre. Incorporating powerful figures from history, and bringing them into a new battle for the Holy Grail, the franchise has recently hit new heights. But in Today's Menu for the Emiya Family, instead of experiencing the fantasy and lore of Fate/, we are invited into the Emiya family home to dine with Shiro, Saber, Rin, Taiga and more. With every meal, and every chapter, Shiro prepares a seasonal dish set to warm up hearts and fill bellies. Each chapter is followed by an actual recipe from food consultant Makoto Tadano.Add to CartLearn More
