The signature here belongs to Utagawa Yoshitsuna 歌川 芳綱 (fl. c. 1848-1868). The design is entitled "Inshoku yōjō kagami" 飲食養生鑑 ("Mirror of physiology of diet"). There are actually two versions of this design, this one, dated 1855, and an unsigned one which sources seem to agree is a little earlier, c. 1848.

Here is another impression of the Yoshitsuna version:
