So I'm wondering if the main heroine of this series is still Erina, what do you think? so far I feel that such role has been assigned to Tadokoro, especially as of late. Do you think that Erina would eventually still play big role in the plot, or not?
Yes, I'll say so. Souma go to Erina this past chapter. It's just that Erina is not defeat yet, so she doesn't go tsun tsun toward Yukihara yet. That's all.
1) She's part of the Elite Ten
2) It seems she's meant to be the head of the Nakiri family eventually
3) She has a back story with Jouichirou
4) She was pretty much declared Souma's 1st love interest on ch 1
And I could think of some more else
Seriously though, her lack of action as of late was mostly because of her being the only first year unelligible for the election, when this arc is over she's bound to return to another heavily plot related appearance
Then again, she could have one during the Souma vs Subaru shokugeki thinking of what happened this chapter, if not, maybe something on the final (because we know Souma will be there and if he wins hell will break lose with Erina)
The story doesn't have to have only one main female character. Megumi is Yukihira partner and who will evolve throughout the story along with him. Erina is one of the most important rivals, she is on a different level right now, that's why she is not appearing that much, as Eru13 said. She will be very important in the future.
Well, his father do say something along the line of to become a great chef you should find a woman who’ll make you want to cook for her for the rest of your life or something like that. Then, the next page, Erina appear. Seems like a pretty big hint.
It was to create a cliffhanger to the next chapter, put in check Yukihira's enrollment test, it didn't have anything to do with love.
We already discussed that and concluded that love in this story is nearly to zero, but if I had to choose someone to make a couple with Yukihira, it would be Megumi. She, unlike Erina, really showed love for Yukihira.

I personally don't think this series as a whole would be void of dere-dere stuff, it's just at the moment things are more focused on the development of Souma & co. as characters, rather than focusing on their relationships. So far, only Megumi (and Nikumi, but I believe it's comical rather than something serious) who shows her apparent affection towards Souma, but then again, I am looking forward how the relationship between Erina and Souma develops.
