Now there's a J-drama series called Bambino! which is based on a manga that chronicles of a young man who aspires to be a chef specializing in Italian dishes. :D Ooooh~! And the lead actor is Matsumoto Jun! *SQUEEEEEEEEE!*
Check out Bambino! on the d-addicts wiki.
I have watched 3 episodes already and I can't help but love the show! Oooh! It inspires me to become a better cook. :) I know I am slow and may have unnecessary movements in the kitchen so this is awesome, awesome, awesome! Maybe it's a good show to get ideas for bento ;)
