Are you looking for a series that is original and yet utterly endearing? Consider trying What Did You Eat Yesterday?

Shiro Kakei and Kenji Yabuki are possibly the world’s sweetest couple. Shiro spends his days as a lawyer, looking forward to when he can get home to be with his boyfriend. Kenji is a salon stylist, perhaps the best fed stylist around.

You see, Shiro loves to cook and tests all his new recipes out on Kenji, who loves every minute of it.

What Did You Eat Yesterday? It is a complex and fascinating read. It has romance, food (naturally), and more. What I love about it is that it was realistic – tackling the real situations for an LGBT couple, including how the world might react to them.

It certainly made the story hit a little harder. I can see why it won an award (Manga Taisho Award). If you’re a foodie and want to see a story that blends this with romance, then you’ve got to check out What Did You Eat Yesterday?

Thanks to Vertical and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
