Wait, I think I remember a show like this. Did the main character have blue hair worn in a bandana?
Shit was awesome because he had to find these mystical cooking utensils that had dragons and phoenixes and shit engraved onto them. I remember an episode when he used a knife with a dragon on it (which glowed with an awesome power) and he made this pimp-ass dish of paper-thin slices of sushi arranged into a crane formation...or something.
Shit was so cash.
