Synopsis: Chinatsu Arisaka is a 10-year-old girl. Despite looking like an ordinary elementary schooler on the outsider, Chi holds a secret - she's a great cook. When her father passed away, he passed on a small restaurant he owned to her and her mother Mizuha, and since Mizuha has little cooking experience, it's up to Chi to take charge.
The original series started in 2002 and was done in a 4koma style, which lasted 17 volumes. Soon afterwards, Ooi-sensei made a sequel series titled Chii-chan no Oshinagaki Hanjouki, which is more of an open style and is still running to this day.
