Spice of Life

After graduating from an elite cooking academy, eccentric 19 year old Rika Komachi has teamed up with her friend Masaru Ryori to open a five star restaurant. While Rika is more playful and flirtatious, Masaru is more serious and socially awkward. Both are amazing chefs. However, cooking alone won't be able to get them through the trials they'll face.

I'm not sure I can truly deliver on the cooking part of the novel. Though it is a bit more character focused. I hope you enjoy this series.
[Important] It is possible that I will take down the chapters due to submitting this novel to a contest.
