* In a game that encourages experimentation, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfWild'' allows you to be a cordon bleugh chef with the game's cooking system. Mixing blatantly incompatible materials (such as bugs or monster parts) with any other food items produces [[CensoredForComedy Dubious Food]] while cooking only clearly inedible objects like ore or firewood produces Rock-Hard Food. They don't recover much health, and Link's eating animations for these items have him forcing himself to eat the Dubious Food and struggling to eat the Rock-Hard Food.

* ''WebVideo/EpicMealTime'' is about a bunch of trained chefs doing this for TestosteronePoisoning. The results are highly caloric and fatty (with [[BaconAddiction extra bacon]]).

** Stone also tried some [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-crazy-sandwiches-from-tv-shows-taste-tested21/ weird sandwiches]], including both Tang and toothpaste ones from ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''.
* ''Webvideo/{{React}}'' had one in a regular People Vs. Food episode, where five random pizza toppings were combined (the most edible: ham/alfredo sauce/egg/marshmallows/raspberries and goldfish candy/onion/peanut butter/pickles/tuna), and downright unsavory ones in the Challenge Chalices: ice cream with sardines, tartar and barbecue sauce! Gross smoothies (i.e. milk, guacamole, hot sauce and pickles)! Sour and spicy drinks! Turning already spicy noodles into a FireBreathingDiner!

* Neelix, the ship's cook on ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. He does prove on several occasions that he ''can'' cook food the crew likes (in one episode, he does a Rokeg blood pie for B'Elanna). But his habit of experimenting and unfamiliar ingredients results in many complaints and avoidance of the mess hall.

But his habit of experimenting and unfamiliar B'Elanna) provided he has the ingredients results in many and sticks to the recipe. However, between his love of experimental cooking and ''Voyager'''s erratic access to ingredients (some of which are previously unheard of and/or edible InNameOnly), the result is complaints and avoidance of the mess hall.hall more often than not.

Cordon Bleugh Chef is not about "chefs" who make food that either looks absolutely disgusting or is even harmful to the one unlucky enough to eat it; that's LethalChef. It also isn't when someone adjusts already-created food to make it more "appealing". That's BizarreTasteInFood.

BizarreTasteInFood. Though it could make them into a DisgruntledChef, feeling like everyone else just can't appreciate "original works of art" like he can.

* The edutainment game ''Hello Kitty Big Fun Deluxe'' had interactive stories as one of the activities, including one where Hello Kitty makes a stew and invites a friend over for dinner, potentially making you a cordon bleugh chef, since you can add any four ingredients to the stew, ranging from meat, veggies and spices to ''silverware''. No matter what ingredients you chose, the friend will praise your concoction as long as everything is edible. If you put anything else, the stew is described at tasting "awful" or "strange".

** Mia from ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' is this. The rest of the team doesn't have the heart to tell her, though.

** To properly understand what was fashionable in the 80s, one must read the ''Silver Palate Cookbook'' by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins. While nothing in it is particularly nasty or even unappetizing, the food in AmericanPsycho and related media is essentially warped riffs on that. (Their ''New Basics Cookbook'', written just before the two parted ways, is sort of an alternate universe ''Joy of Cooking'' based on everything odd and off-kilter about 80s cuisine.)

The Cordon Bleugh Chef is a "chef" who does know how to cook but seems to be willing to [[BizarreTasteInFood combine foods that should never be used in the same dish or, in the worst cases, even in the same universe]]. If the resulting dish doesn't cause an ''[[ScrewballSerum urge to purge]]'' with just the taste, [[AlienLunch finding out what was in it surely will]]. At the very least, many of those eating will comment that it [[TastesLikeFeet tastes like something the dish has no right to be tasting like given its ingredients]].
