List Rules We're not including One Piece since the series isn't exclusively about cooking. Sorry Sanji, we still love you!

As if food in anime didn't already make your mouth water, here are the best cooking anime series of all time, ranked by anime fans like you. These anime focus on chefs and cooks striving to be the best they can be in the kitchen, who will stop at nothing to make the most delicious food possible. The shows on this list are all about food, but they vary in what they specifically focus on. For example in Yumeiro PatissiereIchigo Amano focuses on sweets, pastries and deserts. On the other hand, there is Antique Bakery, where the four main characters create various breads in their bakery. Other shows are more broad, such as Cooking Master Boy, which tells the story of a boy who wants to be a chef that is talented in all areas of the kitchen. No matter what kind of food you're into, if you love cooking and anime, these are must-watch series for you! Vote for the ones you liked the best, and if you haven't seen all of these, then use this list as a guide in figuring out which series you should check out first. Also please add any cooking anime that are missing from the list if one of your favorites isn't here.
