Wake-Up Kiss is the 42nd chapter of Shokugeki no Soma.
This chapter covers the first half of the showdown between Soma and Joichiro.
Daimido,Isshiki and Megumi were the chosen judges for the showdown.
The judges decided on a morning dish that will not overwhelm a sleepy Megumi, Daimido (due to her old age) and a starving Isshiki (who just finished field work)
Of the two, Soma managed to finish first. His dish: An Apple Risotto garnished with Bacon was deemed the perfect answer to their criteria.
However Joichiro's aura as he serves his dish after Soma made Daimido state that even though Soma's dish exceeded their expectation, she thinks Joichiro's dish will easily surpass his son's.
