Cooking Papa (クッキングパパ Kukkingu Papa ?) is an ongoing seinen slice of life manga series written and illustrated by Tochi Ueyama. The series has been serialized in the manga anthology Weekly Morning since 1984.[1 ] Kodansha collects individual chapters into tankōbon volumes, with the first one published on January 18, 1986,[2] and 105 volumes total as of July 23, 2009 (2009 -07-23),[3] making it the fifth-longest manga series by number of volumes. Full recipes for the dishes featured in each chapter are provided at the end of the chapter.[4] The story revolves around a salaryman who can cook well.

The series has been adapted into a 151-episode anime television series of the same name by Eiken and directed by Toshitaka Tsunoda. The anime series was originally broadcast in Japan on TV Asahi between April 1992 and May 1995,[5] and has also been aired in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
