The Absolutely Tasty series is a segment within the Gaki no Tsukai show, in which the members compete to produce a tasty recipe around a dish. The series debuted in Fall 2003 with Rice and went for 13 parts, having a four year hiatus after the free-dish "cooking I wanted to try" segment in Fall 2012 before an Okonomiyaki episode aired in August 2016. The tagline of the series is "I always wanted to try this!" pronounced in the intro after the formulaic prefix, and each episode is styled as "Absolutely Tasty Championship".
The dishes range from traditional Japanese dishes such as mochi, taiyaki, takoyaki, nabe and chawanmushi to western dishes such as pizza and pasta. In every case the dish serve as a base, and the members introduce toppings, fillings or otherwise add to the base ingredients. The added ingredients are either fresh produce and processed products (eg. vegetables, ginger, Frisk, and Japanese snacks) or sometimes other dishes in itself (e.g. a French full course and American fast foods in nabe).
