Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally and plans to release the series in print in July. Crunchyroll is publishing new chapters as Kodansha is publishing them in Japan.

Kodansha Comics describes the story:

Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.

The anime will premiere in July.

Amagakure (100 Blossoms to Love) launched the manga in good! Afternoon in 2013, and Kodansha is publishing the manga's sixth compiled volume on March 7.
