Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma has had plenty of chefs vying for supremacy within the anime culinary world, but one of the most favored by fans is definitely the wielder of "God's Tongue" in Erina Nakiri, who now how some slick new anime thanks to one Cosplayer. Though the final season of the anime arrived last fall, it's clear that the anime franchise has been able to leave a lasting impression on viewers. While Food Wars isn't the only series focusing on "food battles", it certainly is one of the most popular.
Part of the allure for the series came from its extended cast of characters with their own elaborate designs and personalities fitting for this cooking dominated world. On top of the food chain was Erina Nakiri, the "God Tongue," who had a better palate than anyone else in the food world. It's why she still remains one of the most popular in the franchise overall, and artist @_chibikaty provides another strong example as to why with some great cosplay! Check it out below:

Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma might have ended both its manga and anime runs, but it's far from the last way fans have been able to enjoy the franchise. In fact, the anime recently made its big return to Adult Swim's Toonami programming block for its third season. It's not the only new work from the duo released in the last year either as the two recently reunited for a brand new project taking on One Piece's world.
Following the release of a special chapter following Sanji a couple of years ago, Tsukuda and Saeki celebrated the 1000th Chapter of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece with a return to this spin-off project, Food Wars: Shokugeki no Sanji. The two creators have been a huge hit with fans, and while they have yet to reveal whether or not they will work together again (or whether or not either of them will be heading into their own individual projects), any return would likely be received well.
