To be fair Asuka proberbly like German or possibly American food so she wouldn't be as good with Japanese dishes and would need to learn them.

Pre EOE Asuka is a perfectionist who would try and become the best chef and make quality dishes. Post EOE Asuka prolly doesn't give a fck and would just order some sushi.

Either would be more tasty than what Rei cooks which would likely only be sufficient for my survival.

They're both prolly terrible cooks tho. You're better off making or getting something yourself. Deli Paninis are top bins.

I have the feeling that Rei might be able to cook perfectly when she has instructions she can follow, though it might end up a little bit bland.
Asuka on the other hand, might throw in lots of spices! Then again, she might be able at cooking traditional German stuff, which I'm not the biggest fan of.

Rei will make the best vegan Ume-dumpings in the world, while Asuka might surprise us with super savory Schnitzel.

Wait, really? In that case I apologise, from your messages it seemed pretty clear to me that you very much dislike her.

I have a more favorable opinion of the protags than the vast majority of peeps here lal.

I doubt Asuka or Rei would be half decent chiefs tho.

Murican or German food>non-sushi Japanese. Off course, I'd just order sushi, not have a highschooler make it for me.

I agree on the first part. German food is gud.

Neither. Shinji is where it's at.

Exactly, Shinji is best cook, followed by Hikari, and if you remember the manga, Toji could also cook, but chose not to cause it was "girly" or some such nonsense.

Fun fact, Gordon Ramsay had a father who belittled him growing up for his interest in cooking, saying it was "for poofs". So Toji might have grown up to be a world class chef.

As for Asuka... keep in mind she snapped at Shinji for forgetting to pack her a lunch, suggesting she doesn't even do that for herself.

Technically not, but for a topic as obscure and little-discussed as this, we should probably take all sources we can get

You're right, it's not discussed very often, I think we just take for granted that Shinji can cook.

I think the question ought to be asking, considering so few characters are known to cook in any canon, is who's food won't kill you :lol:

One thing for certain is that Misato is the worst cook.

Since we've pretty much run the gambit of all the characters, I'm going to change the thread title to reflect such.

^Didn't Pen-Pen also choke on that food?

I think the best cook is Shinji, it's like his thing, and he's really good at it. We know Hikari cooks, and gives the leftovers to Toji (or plans to before Bardiel). Outside the show, other than Toji knowing how to cook, and I beleive Gendo grilled/cooked in the Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga, and Yui could cook there as well, when she wasn't at NERV that is.

If I remember correctly, the things that Gendo grilled were barely edible (I may be mixing things up tho, its been a while since I last read it)

^ I'm not entirely sure either for the same reason. Definitely have to re-read it, seeing as Volume 18 is due out sometime this fall.

Really? Nice.

notices just how far offtopic we are well, I think we should go back to the question of who can cook best
