* [[Wiki/{{Killerbunnies}} Gunhilde]], otherwise known as "Greasestain" is one of these and, apparently, she isn't safe eating her cooking, seeing as she uses "unconventional" ingredients and the fact she's suffering from some of the side-effects. Somehow, [[FridgeHorror she got a job as a lunch lady.]]

Some people cannot cook. They burn breakfast so bad that you lose your lunch preemptively. When they cook dinner, you can only think of [[IncrediblyLamePun dessert-ing]]. Sometimes, if you're lucky, they can cook something that can be charitably described as "food."

Sometimes their food merely tastes bad. However, it has also been known to cause nausea, vomiting or hospitalization. If you're particularly unlucky, it can cause, [[ScrewballSerum well, just about anything.]] If dinner eats you, you're probably in a lethal chef's kitchen.

* In ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' episode 56 Earl Harlan, sous chef at Night Vale's newest restaurant, shares a tiramisu recipe on the community radio show that he warns is highly poisonous and will probably kill you. Another time he shares his recipe for pulled pork, which includes killing the pig, and spends a lot of time on the subject of killing the pig, before quickly rattling off a seemingly normal recipe for pulled pork.

* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': Calvin is a bona fide Lethal Chef. In one strip, Calvin's Mom is sick so Calvin makes her breakfast in bed: orange juice, eggs and toast. Calvin delivers his mom the eggs smoldering and with a chisel to chip it out of the pan. When his mom asks about the orange juice and toast, Calvin replies "Dad said not to tell you about that until you're better".

* In ''VisualNovel/ReflectionsOnTheRiver'', Prince Shun, despite being Zheng's captive, is keen to cook a meal for both of them, having not had much opportunity to try it before. However, he isn't very good at it, resulting in an opportunity to make friends depending on what Zheng says.
-->'''Zheng:''' Did you always have chewy congee at the palace? Ow! And what's this? Crunchy, too? Is this some kind of congee and clay pot rice fusion?

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-666-and-a-half-j SCP-666-and-a-half-J]] is a crab-stuffed mushroom dish that was given SCP status the day after it was presented. According to the file, it tastes relatively fine, other than an odd taste, but soon enough sets off what can only be called a localized apocalypse on the eater's digestive system.

* 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.

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'', the Guild of Assassins now employs a Domestic Science teacher. In her ''special'' lessons to senior girls on the black Track, Joan Sanderson-Reeves teaches that the way to ''stop'' a man's heart is indeed through his stomach. Although in the case of certain beverages she prepares, she will acceot "kidneys" or "bladder" as an answer.
