Ken is a modern-day chef who wakes up one morning in war-torn 16th century Japan. Faced with an impossible situation, he does what he does best – he cooks. Soon, word of his wonderful food reaches the capital, and the ears of warlord Oda Nobunaga, who immediately orders Ken to cook for him. What will happen to Ken as he finds himself stumbling around in an era he doesn't belong?

The premise was interesting but did not explain much of why Ken was stuck in past.

Maybe the author could've interspersed clues explaining Ken's situation (if he did, I'd completely missed it). I guess the author was careful with how Ken's prior knowledge played into the overall plot, as time travel as plot device ends up creating more story threads for the author to tie up.

The cuisine X history aspect was the redeeming feature of the manga. I enjoyed the way cuisine and historical knowledge was implemented in the story and how it moderated the interactions between characters.

I got bored in the later chapters, but the early chapters were alright.

3/5 interesting premise, but not fleshed out enough to warrant reading the entire thing. I think I know some people irl who would love the story and read the entire series.

Is it seriously the end, though? Seems still like a cliffhanger,

Not a very solid end, imo. That's why I searched the manga for the ending, but it turns out it hasn't finished yet...? Or is it going hiatus? Or simply hasn't been translated? I'm really digging this manga, one of my favorite cooking and historical genre mangas.

Edit: I've completed reading the manga. The last chapter here is exactly at the end point of the drama, plus that Hideyoshi part a bit. Aw, man. And I just realized there's 24 volume in total so in fact I haven't read half of this story yet.

Watch the drama tv series is end the story' guys
Nice to see new chapters.

I also wish his actions could change history a bit but I guess if big things changes too much too early (Yeah I know it's already nearly 100 chapters but still) it would make a bit harder for the author to makes a new story and also we wouldn't really be following the history of Nobunaga...
This is a really good story.
It's a little disappointing how , but I suppose that might be appealing to some readers.

I'm wondering how it will end. At ? Or before that?
It's actually not dead, it's updated in our own online reader...😭

It's been dead here for a while but figured i'll leave a comment here praying for its resurection, was a nice read

That's cause Lol scans pulled out of Mangadex and nuked 15+ chapters of Nobunaga no chef off the site.

If you want to read it, go read off their reader (HA HA HA? I certainly won't after that stunt. ) or you know, pretty much go to any Manga ripper site because Loli-Scans took their scans off Mangadex a site that's supposed to fight manga ripper sites.

No, I did not say Lol Scans were smart. Oh well.
Very enjoyable manga, despite the inaccurate portrait of Oda Nobunaga.
It's actually a really great manga, probably my favorite cooking manga by far, with ADDICTED TO CURRY.

they're both manga where the main theme is cooking, BUT it's not to show everytime ridiculous face like a lot of others cooking manga, there is a real story to follow, and it's very interesting to read.

I have 20 tomes of Nobunaga no chef here, and the quality don't drop, it even become better in some ways.
razagallo is right where were the chapters from 75 to 90?
Chapters deleted from 90 down to 75?
this is fucking great, sad that translations are really slow
RIP Kaede
thx for continuing the scanlation of this great serie
Thanks LOLScans for updating 84~
Most chapters are fine in regards to watermarks. When it's just a line that says "Read first at" inbetween squares, it's totally appropriate. But some of the later chapters, starting from ch. 84 being the worst offender, are just horrendous. That is just crossing the line. Hopefully Lolscans will scale it down a bit more, even though chapter 88 is already halfway decent, except that the watermark still cover some of the art.

*edit/* seems like chapter 84 has been properly updated. Tons of respect to scanlators that appreciate and react to reader feedback!

Fuck, unreadable! Lol Scans should have made their watermark less intrusive. Just place it where aggregators can't cut!

Defacing the original art like this just lowers readers' opinions of them.
A half decent series, just a shame that the current scanlator's ego is far too big for their heads, think they own everything, that people should come to them and be grateful for it.
so... no updates here... sad...
