** The Anzio Girls High School, which is based on WW2 Italy, has Anchovy, Pepperoni and Carpaccio. (All of those are ingredients often used for making pizza.)
** And the St. Gloriana Girls High School (WW2 Britain) gives us Darjeeling, Assam and Orange Pekoe, which (fittingly) get their names from types of tea.

** In VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite's English translation, there are gym leaders named Cilan (cilantro), Chili, and Cress (watercress). They are also waiters, and their names still correspond with their preferred type (Grass for Cilan, Fire for Chili, and Water for Cress).

* In ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'', members of the Goodsoup family have soup-related first like Minerva Stroneheim "Minnie Stronie" Goodsoup. When Guybrush has to impersonate one of them to get into their crypt, the names he can offer include Wonton, Hearty Beef and Potato ("I'm from good Irish stock.") and Split Pea With Ham (which he passes off as a nickname derived from P. Hamilton Goodsoup). There is also a guest at their inn named Charles de Goulash.

** ''VideoGame/EscapeFromMonkeyIsland'' has a similar joke with the Cheese family. The only one we meet is Ignatius (a StealthPun for "Nacho") Cheese, but he describes a few of his relatives to Guybrush who correctly guesses about half of their names.
-->'''Ignatius''': He's (''his great-uncle'') a renowned holy man who remains steadfastly neutral in any conflict.\\
'''Guybrush''': Let me guess, Swiss Cheese?\\
'''Ignatius''': Ah, so you've heard of him.
