* Music/TomLehrer:
** The mess sergeant from ''"It Makes a Fellow Proud to Be a Soldier"'':
-->Our old mess sergeant's taste buds had been shot off in the war
-->But his savory collations add to our espirit de corps
-->To think of all the marvelous ways
-->They're using plastics nowadays
-->It makes a fellow proud to be a soldier.
** Another Lehrer song where this trope makes an appearance is "She's My Girl."

* Two A few examples from ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'':



* In ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', we first meet Mrs. Lovett while she's telling Sweeney (and us) how awful her meat pies are ("The Worst Pies in London"). The song "God, That's Good!" subverts this trope, as it suggests that Mrs. Lovett is actually a pretty good cook, she just needs to buy high-quality ingredients ([[spoiler: such as with the money taken from Pirelli's corpse]]).

* Let this be known, Madgie cannot make Kool-Aid [[http://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Why-Bunny-is-afraid-of-Kool-Aid-321367778]]. She included some rather unconventional ingredients, including [[spoiler: diesel, kerosene, butane, propane, Red Bull, and turpentine. As you may expect, [[EpicFail Bunny was hospitalized and was paralyzed down her left side for a week.]] ]]

* In ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/5300450 Cupcake Wars]]'', Steve brags to everyone that Bucky always made him the best cupcakes for his birthday while they were growing up but when Bucky tries to bake them again after a 70-year gap, he can only make a sludge-like mess that breaks his spoon in half. Not wanting to disappoint Steve, he buys cupcakes from a nearby bakery and pretends that he made them himself. [[spoiler:It turns out that he had ''always'' been a Lethal Chef and that he and Steve had always pretended that the store cupcakes he bought for his birthdays had been made by him instead.]]

Compare the CordonBleughChef who can cook just fine, but often gets too creative, the OneNoteCook who can ace one dish, but otherwise falls into this trope, and the EvilChef who just likes to see you suffer. See also LethallyStupid when the character is so dumb it would be dangerous to let him cook. Contrast the SupremeChef, who is the exact opposite of this trope, and the ChefOfIron, who can be either bad or good but is lethal outside of their cooking.

-->While he cleaned after himself, partly out of habit and partly because he found it relaxing, they had house elves doing the general chores and cooking when Harry could not. He had learned early that Draco was to be kept away from the kitchen lest they all be poisoned.

-->''He set about peeling the leaves off a thick green one that slightly resembled a longer, thinner cabbage and layered them neatly in the bottom of larger pan. He had seen many dishes at banquets served on similar beds of green leaves, and while he could not imagine that the presentation of this dish would be quite as picturesque, it should at least look somewhat appealing to the human eye like this.''

* ''Fanfic/TheAdventuresOfJaina'': [[HighPriest Azzanadra]] is quite literally legendarily bad at cooking, to the point that the citizens of the Zarosian Empire feared him going anywhere near a kitchen even after thousands of years had passed since his first attempt! As a [[HumanoidAliens Mahjarrat]] he doesn't need to eat, thus his understanding of cooking is mainly only that humans are supposed to eat vegetables, meat, and fruit to grow strong and healthy, but for some reason prefer sweets and things that are unhealthy for them.

-->''Beneath the green leaves, the core of the plant was long, thin, and covered in thin white silky strands and pale yellow seeds. Azzanadra could not be sure if these seeds were edible to humans, as he could recall that some plants had seeds that were not safe to eat, so he discarded the core and set about slicing the other vegetables. Firstly he saw to the rounded brown vegetables, which he presumed were potatoes, and the round red ones which he knew for sure were tomatoes. Then he sliced a longer, rounded purple one, which he had seen on banquet tables often enough to recognize as eggplant. He presumed both the white and brown bulb-shaped ones were onions, so he added several of each after slicing them in half. Lastly came a jar full of white beans and the small, thin green pods which were either peapods or stringbeans—well, they were both green, and both most assuredly healthy.''

Lethal Chefs may be employees of a LethalEatery, and quite often can be found fixing up a stew of MysteryMeat.

Lethal Chefs may be employees of a LethalEatery, and quite often can be found fixing up a stew of MysteryMeat. \n Most {{Camp Cook}}s fit this category. (TruthInTelevision for them, as their budgets and ingredients are limited.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe3'', the girls make soup for Gru made from gummi bears and beef. (Justified, of course, as they're about ten years old.) The look on Gru's face confirms he's only eating it to make them happy.
