What Did You Eat Yesterday? inspires me in two ways: Shiro s meals always include tasty-sounding side dishes that show me more ways to include vegetables in a better balanced diet, and I m touched by the love and respect expressed through cooking for those you care about.

About the Author
Over the past decade few female comic artists have been as beloved or as recognized for their work internationally as Fumi Yoshinaga. Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1971, Yoshinaga is a graduate of Tokyo's prestigious Keio University. A lifelong comic artist and story teller, she made her perfessional debut in 1994 with her short series, The Moon and the Sandals, serialized in Houbunsha's monthly Boys Love anthology Hanaoto. Since her debut Yoshinaga has penned more than a dozen, with a good number of them having been adapted into motion pictures and animated TV series. Her work on Antique Bakery sent her into international fame and she has since been nominated in the United States for the Eisner Award for her titles - Flowers of Life and Ooku.
In 2009 she was recognized with the James Tiptree Award for her literary contributions covering the topics of gender in speculative fiction in her title Ooku. Ouku also received the Osamu Tezuka Award and the Shogakukan Manga Award.

I enjoy the cultural insights these kinds of chapter stories give us, especially when it comes to food items I’ve never heard of. For example, the croquette sandwich consists of a breadcrumb-coated, fried patty of ground meat and mashed potatoes on a slice of bread with some cabbage. I suppose it’s a crunchier variation on our meat loaf sandwich, but the frying makes it sound much more decadent.
With his own family, Shiro has to take care of his father while his mother is in the hospital for surgery. When she’s home, they all prep and eat food together. Although their conversation is mostly about how delicious the meal is, there’s an undercurrent of reassuring emotion, reinforced by the traditional meal.
Shiro and Kenji get together with another couple to make fancy ricotta pancakes with all kinds of toppings. Kenji gives himself a makeover to combat worries about growing older. Everyone’s thinking about increasing age, as Shiro’s parents start cleaning out their house. It’s natural for middle-aged adults to think about these kinds of concerns, and it’s another thing that sets this series apart, that its characters aren’t teens or young adults.
