* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'', the very feminine Pyra's unique field skill is cooking, a skill that her less feminine "sister" Mythra lacks. The similarly feminine Vess also cooks dumplings that are famously delicious even though they're [[OneNoteChef the only thing she can cook]]. The tomboyish Mòrag, in contrast, is a self-admitted poor cook, though this seems to be more directly related to her experiences with combat; when she's tasked with gutting a fish, she gets the impression that it's trying to shame her with its gaze for stabbing it in the heart, so she leaves the task to Brighid instead.

Compare also HarpOfFemininity, an alternative and somewhat more refined way to emphasize a woman's femininity. Also compare TextileWorkIsFeminine, which is similar but has fallen more victim to the IndustrialRevolution. Also see ThroughHisStomach for one use a feminine woman can put it to -- whether in a romantic or maternal situation.

* Completely averted in the Italian webseries [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfWj9qhNHisO_un8a7ux1qA ''Insopportabilmente donna'']]: its creator/protagonist, Creator/TessMasazza, is so inept at cooking that her friends panic at the mere sight of her picking up a knife to help them preparing a meal and [[ReassignedToAntarctica immediately send her to buy some food at the farthest away supermarket]].

This trope is fairly recent, as before the arrival of electric and gas ranges (and of packaged meat) cookery was considered dirty, hard work that if anything ''sharply'' detracted from a woman’s perceived femininity. A proper lady living in the 18th or 19th century might make preserves or distill perfumes or medicines - and would have a stillroom in which to do so - but (as in ''Pride & Prejudice'') would not be caught dead even so much as walking into her own kitchen, let alone cooking in it.

* Averted in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' with [[ActionGirl Ziva David]]. No one would ever accuse her of being overy girly; a Massad-trained assassin, accomplished field agent and more often than not the toughest person in any room she happens to be in. And she has cooked on occasion for her friends and fellow agents, much to their delight. Abby Scuito is quoted as saying "Her cooking rocks!"

** Creator/HarlanEllison's brief, snarly review of this skewers the trope and points out that throughout the film we've seen Ramsay's robot maid Lois, who does all the cooking. So, Ellison suggests, Thompson might say "I don't have to: Lois can do it. I can fuck: Lois can't do that."

** Inverted hard with Rachel and Monica. [[GirlyGirl Rachel]], despite being the most feminine, fashionable and sexy of the girls is a terrible cook (including once putting beef in the trifle), while [[{{Tomboy}} Monica]] who is competitive, strong-willed and gutsy is a professional chef and feeds the entire gang for the whole series.

* Completely inverted in ''VideoGame/RPGShooterStarwish''. It's guys who are great at cooking, not girls. Resident SupremeChef is Johnny, and [[TheHero Deuce]] while far from Johnny's skills is pretty decent cook himself, and cooking is [[RealMenWearPink his hobby]]. [[WrenchWench Ginny]] is the only girl to actually make something edible, [[Tsundere Tessa]] is figurative LethalChef, while [[MadScientist Deadeye]] is ''literal'' LethalChef'' (one of her meals actually sent Ginny to hospital).
