* Averted, but discussed by the main character of ''Fanfic/SleepingWithTheGirls'', who, being a human being from the RealWorld, points out that he isn't bound by the "Conventions" of the fictional universes he's in. As such, his cooking skills fall into neither this nor "Epic Win" status. At the bare minimum, he's shown moderate skill in making omelettes- neither toxic nor blissfully amazing, they're simply normal omelettes.

-->'''Xander''': "No. "She can't cook as in prohibited from doing so by the CDC, the Geneva convention, and several international agencies. Ever since... last time."

* In chapter 1 of ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', Shinji has to try Misato's cook. He seriously wonders if that... bizarre, highly-spicy glob resting on his plate won't kill him.

* The extended edition of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]'' reveals Éowyn to be a terrible cook, who proudly presents Aragorn with a bowl of "soup" containing some limp boiled leaves, one gelatinous dumpling, and a puddle of liquid shimmering with grease. As a royal princess who seems to disdain feminine activities, it makes some sense that her cooking skills are underdeveloped.
* Jack Black's character Nacho from ''NachoLibre'' is like this initially. Once he makes enough money (through his wrestling) to purchase better ingredients, he's capable of making dishes that at least ''look'' appetizing.

* The lunch cook in ''PrincipalTakesAHoliday'' is shown to make barely-edible food. When the new fake principal decides to try it, he goes to the kitchen in disgust and forces the cook to eat his own food, telling him he'll have to do this from now on. When the real principal shows up, he remarks how things have improved, including the fact that the food is actually pretty decent now.
* In the film version of [[Film/TheATeam The A-Team]], Murdock shows some shades of this. His preparation of steak involves sprinkling cordite on them, and then flipping them over to allow it to flame up. His "special sauce" (containing anti-freeze), induced Bell's Palsy in Face (which Murdock shrugged of as "only partial paralysis"). What keeps him from being considered a full-on lethal chef is that he has been shown to be really good at the job as well. His curry tapenade is what is used to calm down B.A. after his being drugged and brought on board a ship.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Shinji has very bad memories of Misato's horrid cooking skills. When she tells hims that he will be staying with her, Shinji is happy... until he remembers it means he will have to eat whatever she "cooks" again, and he gets terrified.
-->'''Misato:''' “I’ll cook you a huge welcome home meal!”\\
'''Shinji:''' “Oh…great” (thinking) ''Oh God in Heaven, not again, I can’t go through that…food…again…''

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Misato's cook is... dangerous. In chapter 8 Asuka accuses her from almost poisoning their penguin pet:
-->'''Misato:'''"But it's Shin-chan's night to cook! [...] That's way better than even my best curry!"\\
'''Asuka:''' "The last time you fed 'your best curry' to Pen Pen, he spent the rest of the night staring at the ceiling and barking."
