Crunchyroll Manga describes the series

Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.


The series was a bookstore worker pick for 2015 (like My Hero Academia, Re-Life and Dagashi Kashi),and fan pick for manga to make a big break in 2015 (Academia and Re-Life again, Himouto Umaru-chan) and 2015 most wanted anime adaptation (Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto, One-Punch Man, Drifters).
