    Default Yumeiro patissiere

    Yumeiro patissiere (http://www.gogoanime.com/category/yumeiro-patissiere)
    is an anime about a middle school girl that goes to a pastry school in tokyo
    that is a branch of a school in Paris. I don't know if there really is such
    a school, if it is based on a real school (kinda like kaleido stage is based
    on cirque de soleil), or if it is just a place that is totally made up by
    the animators. Gogo anime says the following: This series tells the story
    of 14 year old Ichigo Amano, a clumsy girl who dreams of becoming a pastry
    chef. She draws closer to fulfilling her dream when she enrolls in the St.
    Mary Academy culinary school and meets a tiny "spirit of sweets."

    Well anyway, the title of episode 9
    (http://www.gogoanime.com/yumeiro-pat...iere-episode-9),
    or at least the way it was translated by the subbers, is "The fated pudding
    showdown," when what they are making is custard (cook in a water bath),
    specifically, flan (line the ramekins with caramel before putting the
    uncooked custard in). Custard and pudding are "first cousins," I suppose,
    but I have never considered them the "same thing." Perhaps the Japnese word
    for "pudding" and "custard" is the same, but the subbers did not know that
    they were making custard and translated it as "pudding."

    It appears that there is a branch of le cordon bleu in tokyo, so it might be
    modeled after that? I can't find any culinary school in paris called "St
    Mary academy culinary school."

    Hmmm. My daughter collects manga, and I collect cookbooks. This
    may be another intersection of our collections. How much of the
    prose would be of interest to those of us who would be interested
    in the foodie angle?

    I don't know. There is quite a bit of cooking involved. In one episode the
    students makes mille-feuille which ichigo screws up, so she goes into the
    school kitchen to practice making it, in another they make a fancy cake for
    a little girl at a nearby kindergarten, in the one I described Ichigo (the
    main character of the show) and another have a custard throwdown, etc. so
    the show is more than just "set" in a cooking school, but I don't think it
    is really "instructional" like "The french chef" was either. I think it is
    more about the relationships developed between Ichigo and the other members
    of the A group. Will there be any "romance" though, I kinda hope not.

    That being said, I think it is a cute anime, and I like it, but I suppose
    the only way to tell if you would like it would be to follow my link and
    watch a few episodes. There is a manga of this (most, but not all anime is
    made from manga), but I don't know if it is available in the United States.

    Heh! I didn't catch that your post was about anime and not
    manga. I'll have to look for the manga version. There is a slight
    possibility my daughter has it, but it doesn't sound grisly enough
    for her (alas).

    I looked to see if there were any on-line scanlations of the manga, but
    could not find any. I did find a blog about the show that said the manga is
    available in New York, but not whether it is available in "regular"
    bookstores like B & N or only available in special stores that import from
    Japan.

    I'm sure we can find it. My daughter is very adept at finding
    manga--and even importing them when need be.
