TOP FIVE BEST CHEFS IN ANIME

Anime is such a huge world filled with different kinds of characters with different kinds of behavior, skills, story and more. Some will showcase character with incredible powers while some will focus more on romance and fantasy. Some may even come up with a very unique approach. It's not really surprising if an anime came up with a theme focusing about cooking. Japanese Cuisine is undeniably very influential due to its world class quality, preparation and presentation. So today, I decided to list down my personal list of five of the best chefs in anime. Have fun!
TOP FIVE BEST CHEFS IN ANIME
Author's Note: This entry is listed subjectively. 

TOP 5 BEST CHEF IN ANIME
"RIN OKUMURA"
(AO MO EXORCIST)
He might be a son of one of the Demon Kings ~ Satan and he might be introduced as an expert exorcist who fights against evil, Rin Okumura has shown his cooking skills for not just one but many times during the anime and manga. Rin is the type of person who can be very protective, violent yet kindhearted. He also has a soft spot for animals too. Rin grew up a normal life and in his youth, he started to learn how to cook which eventually become his natural talent. He even got hired in a supermarket because of his skills in cooking. He is an amazing cook indeed and in fact, he used it in a cook-battle against the stove spirit Ukobach. He cooks frequently, and sometimes Yukio's admirers mistake his lunch boxes for the lunch boxes of another girl. 

TOP 4 BEST CHEF IN ANIME
"AZUMA KAZUMA"
(YAKITATE! JAPAN)
Azuma may not be an all around chef but his ability as a pastry chef is simply exceptional.  He is specializing in making delicious breads and other pastries and he is aiming to create his ultimate Ja-Pans (the term he used to name his creations). He is often being underestimated probably because of his young age and  lack of training but baking is a natural talent that Azuma possesses. To introduce his Ja-Pans globally, Azuma often joins prestigious competitions. Some of his unique and out of this world creations include the Mt Fuji Bread, the 324 Layers Croissant Bread, Wasabi Diner Bread, Green Turtle Bread, Black Japan, and a whole lot more. 

TOP 3 BEST CHEF IN ANIME
"SANJI"
(ONE PIECE)
Sanji is a pirate and also the chef of Straw Hats with a bounty of 77,000,000. He is aiming to find the so-called All Blue a mystical sea of legend, rumored to be the only place in the world where the North, South, East, and West seas meet. In this legendary ocean, it is said that there are fish from each of the four seas, and to have such a resource at one's disposal is the ultimate dream of every chef. Considering that he is a pirate, Sanji's specialty are Sea Food dishes and of course, these dishes are not so ordinary because some of his recipe might include meats from giant sea monsters he caught himself. This is also the reason why he is using his legs in fighting rather than his hands since they are the most important parts in every chef. 

TOP 2 BEST CHEF IN ANIME
"LUI MAO XING"
(COOKING MASTER BOY / CHUKA ICHIBAN)

Lui Mao Xing is not a Japanese but he is considered as the best chef in China despite of his very young age. The story takes place in 19th century China during the Qing Dynasty, where the Emperor was weakened and the country was close to chaos. It is also during a fictitious era called "The Era of the Cooking Wars". It was an era in which top chefs with different cooking styles tried their best to improve their skills and to become the best chef in China. Lui Mao fight off against the Underground Cooking Society, an organized group which aims to control all of China through the cooking field. Even though he doesn't have much experience, Mao has the pride of a truly experienced chef and having learned from his mother that a chef's purpose is to create a dish that makes people happy, he always put his customers' needs first and is always able to make a creative dish that greatly satisfies them. A character of a true chef indeed. 

THE BEST CHEF IN ANIME
"KOMATSU"
(TORIKO)
He may not be the main character in the anime but Komatsu has proven a lot that makes him truly deserving in this top spot. Among all the chefs listed here, Komatsu is the only one who is a certified six star chef. He is Toriko's ever enthusiastic yet timid chef partner, who despite his weakness is greatly interested by what he finds in his travels with Toriko. As a result, he tries to overcome his fear and does his best to help. Toriko, by the way is more of a Gourmet Hunter rather than a sole chef. He is also currently the only chef to successfully recreate the Century Soup, a rare and high-class ingredient, considered one of the greatest soups in the world.
