* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Orihime is very fond of putting ingredients together in ways that stop the hearts of everyone listening to her recipes. As a result, very few people have ever had the courage to actually try her dishes. Those that do discover she's actually an excellent cook who makes the food, against the odds, taste wonderful, as confirmed both by Rangiku in the manga and the [[AllThereInTheManual databooks]]. She eventually gets a part-time job in a bakery, and settles down for bakery products like bread and pastries. The {{anime}}, however, [[{{Filler}} deviates from the manga]] solely for [[RuleOfFunny comedy purposes]] to create a RunningGag about Orihime's food being stomach-churning.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', one of the quests for the Dark Brotherhood involves impersonating a famous chef known as the Gourmet, in order to put poison in [[spoiler:the Emperor]]'s food. Rather than cooking the meal yourself, you are giving instructions to [[spoiler:the Emperor]]'s personal chef. For each step, you are given several choices for what to tell her to put in, the poison being the only one that actually matters. [[SarcasmMode A sweet roll, some vampire dust, a giant's toe, and a gold coin certainly do taste good in soup!]] [[spoiler:The plan doesn't even work, as it's not really the Emperor.]]

* 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 Cordon Bleugh Chef was soon back in charge...

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In "The Eleventh Hour", after giving up on nearly every other food combination following his completely altered taste buds, the Doctor settles on the combination of fish fingers...and custard, which several sources state tastes quite good
** Served Fish Fingers and Custard at a party once, the reception was overwhelmingly positive. So, perhaps a subversion?

* In ''Manga/BlendS'', Maika ends up putting vinegar, salt and ''Tabasco hot sauce'' into her limited time menu dessert. However [[SubvertedTrope the dessert actually becomes a hit with the customers]] due to Maika being the cafe's [[TooKinkyToTorture "sadist waitress" servicing a bunch of masochist customers]].

* 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.
