* The [=BBC=] series ''Back in Time for Dinner'' attempts to tell us about social history through food, with an ordinary family preparing and eating food typical of a given year in the 20th century. In keeping with social trends, this involved the mother doing most of the cooking. Bizarrely, though entertainingly, the producers chose to cast a family where the mother is, by her own reckoning as well as her family's, a terrible cook (truly, you have never seen anyone struggle with a simple tin opener the way she does!). And she doesn't get any better as the series progresses, either. The relief was obvious when they reached the 1980s and the progression in social trends allowed the father, who ''is'' a good cook, to take over preparing the meals. There was also considerable relief when the sequel ''Further Back in Time for Dinner'' furnished them with a maid to cook for them - unfortunately, this arrangement was only temporary, and the Lethal Chef was soon back in charge...

* Apparently Isabelle Lightwood of ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'' is this, as Jace quips that Simon entering a room full of {{Muggle}}-killing runes might be less lethal than consuming her cooking.

** ''Series/WorstCooksInAmerica'' is a reality cooking show featuring people who're obviously terrible cooks, and the people who compete were nominated by friends, relatives or even themselves, and many of the people have even accidentally given others food poisoning through what they've cooked. The point of the show is to teach some [[LethalChef Lethal Chefs]] to become good enough cooks to actually make a restaurant-quality for a trio of food-expert judges.

** Antonia from Season 8 also made Ramsay vomit with her signature dish.dish, a supposed Mardi Gras Gumbo that looked like "liquid shit", as Ramsay put it. When she got upset "it wasn't up to par", he made everyone else taste it, with such descriptions as "like a big bowl of mud" and "I'd rather have a cat shit in my mouth".

* In ''Series/TheNanny'' episode "Close Shave", C.C. Babcock has been attending a cooking class, and gets Maxwell to try some of her cooking (Fran ''looked'' at it, and thought it was dog food.) He reluctantly does so, and spends the entire episode violently ill. Everybody blamed C.C.'s cooking, but as it turns out, it was actually appendicitis. This all leads to a scene where Fran, [[ItMakesSenseInContext disguised as a candy striper]], is asked to shave Maxwell in preparation for surgery]]...

* ''Series/HellsKitchen'' features as least one of these every season. A special example is Matt's "Exotic Tartare" from Season 4, containing venison, diver scallops, caviar, and ''white chocolate''. Creator/GordonRamsay takes a mouthful and lasts just long enough to note that there were capers in the dish before doubling over to hurl. Twice. Throughout that season, his teammates tell himo shut up whenever he comes up with a suggestion.
