Kasayama's kitchen was taken over by Erina

During the first day of the Stagiaire, upon Erina Nakiri's and Megumi Tadokoro's arrival to the kitchen, Kasayama showed up and ordered the two to start off by washing dishes. However, he quickly became angry when Erina bluntly refused. Nevertheless, Kasayama was forced to submit to Erina since she effortlessly took command of the entire kitchen.[5]

Days after, Kasayama got angry at Megumi after she suggested that the customers should decide how much sauce they need. However, he was forced to adapt her idea after a customer asked for more sauce.[6]
