* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'s'' Daphne is a terrible cook, and uses it to her advantage when [[spoiler: she claims to be making [[FunnyForeigner goat's head stew and haggis]] so Frasier will eat out.]]

* The Hong Kong game show ''Beautiful Cooking'' is built completely on this trope It's rating scale goes from 10, which is "Looks and tastes edible" to a -10, which is "I vomited more than once". There are some girls who can't cook well for the first event or the latter while some are just completely hopeless. In one case, one of the guests got food poisoning and had to be treated to the season finale dinner to compensate for the suffering he went through.

** ''Series/WorstCooksInAmerica'' is a reality cooking show featuring people who're obviously terrible cooks, and the people who compete were nominated by friends, relatives, spouses or significant others, 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.

** Neelix is legendarily bad, often cooking [[AlienLunch meals that are disgusting to the human palate]]. When he sticks to the basics or uses a recipe then things turn out fine, but when he tries to show off his exotic skills (anything with Talaxian Spices is a warning bell) the wheels come off. In one episode, he nearly caused ship-wide failure by infecting the ship's neural gel packs with bacteria from curdling cheese.

** Dave Lister's own attempts at cooking aren't much better. During the earliest episodes, Lister tries to qualify to become an officer, so that he would outrank Rimmer. Lister goes for the Chef exam (because even the ship's cook outranked Rimmer), but fails horribly. One reason might be that Lister, being a total slob, understands recipes not as guidelines but merely as suggestions. Another reason is that Lister's overly fond of curries, and he claims that after years on a curry diet his tastebuds have suffered. Lister does try to cook from time to time, but his attempts always suffer from ''some'' fatal flaw, such as stuffing sausages with curry powder. His "Shami Kebabs Diablo" (take exactly one teaspoon out of a full tin of chilli powder. Put the ''[[CutASliceTakeTheRest rest]]'' in to the mixture) put his friend Peterson in sickbay for a week. Or cooking a three-course meal which ''looks'' fine at first glance, but due to lack of proper plates and eating utensils is served on (and in) items that Lister raided from sickbay. All properly washed and sterilized beforehand, of course! Still, it puts Cat off the mood for eating.

*** Another time Lister fed a T. rex a giant bowl of "cow vindaloo", it took two tastes of it then ran for a drink. The other results were, unfit to show on television. Though in that case it was more-or-less what he was [[GoneHorriblyRight trying to do]] as earlier it had eaten a time-manipulation device and they needed it back.

* The title character of ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' has vast experience with all kinds of alien races, years of travel through time and space, remarkable knowledge of alien technology, and general overall brilliance and awesomeness.....but she can't cook. Although it's not mentioned very often onscreen, her ineptitude in all things culinary is apparently a very common occurence, given that, by the beginning of Series Four, her son Luke is so accustomed to it that he sends Clyde a text message casually informing him that, "Mum set the kitchen on fire again..."

* Malena in ''Series/ForYourLove'', there's plenty of jokes about her non-existant cooking skills- for examples in one episode, Mel has a daydream of her actually being a good cook, then reality sets in and he finds himself staring at a badly burnt casserole.

** 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 him to shut up whenever he comes up with a suggestion.

%%* Chumlee from Series/PawnStars is this, in spades. Although the Old Man seems to enjoy his efforts.
%%* Comicbook/LoisLane is that in ''{{Series/Smallville}}''. Also has elements of that in ''Series/LoisAndClark''. Makes one wonder whether it's a ComicBook thing.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SoRandom'': Grady's character, Roadkill Mcguill, owns a foodtruck where he cooks dead animals that were ran over on the road. At one point, he even gives FalseReassurance by denying hurting a living creature before he mentions that someone else already ran the animals over when he finds them.

* Chelsea in ''Series/RavensHome''. In the pilot episode, she accidentally set a fire while trying to cook twice and Booker even ordered pizza in case she decided to cook again. In the third episode, the CrankyLandlord accused her of trying to poison him with the coffee she made.
