* The ''LuckyLuke'' album ''La Diligence'' had a RunningGag where every one of the cooks at the stagecoach stops only knew how to make (or possibly only had the resources for) bacon and beans. Taken UpToEleven during the high-class dinner at the end, where they STILL only serve bacon and beans, with some random extra ingredients added for each dish. To say the characters are sick of bacon and beans at that point is an understatement.

* Bob Belcher from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' makes good burgers - ''[[SupremeChef Fantastic]]'' [[SupremeChef burgers]], when it really matters. And of course, him being a One-Note Cook is justified by the fact that his restaurant is named...well, ''Bob's Burgers''.
** And he has been shown to be quite knowledgeable about cooking in general, and puts a lot of care and effort into things like Thanksgiving turkey - his excellent turkey has been a plot point in at least two episodes. So he's only a One-Note Cook because of his situation.

* Mistress Ploppy in ''Series/{{Blackadder}} II'', who prepares whatever the condemned prisoners want for their final meal. As long as they want sausages.

** From the same series but a different game, Repede from ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' takes this trope to its logical conclusion. Repede can be given any of the recipes to cook (of which there are a lot), and he even has a surprisingly low failure rate. Except regardless of if you have him make a sandwich, a sorbet, or hot pot, or anything else, all Repede can make... is dog food.

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'': Centorea is a good cook by centaur standards, but since centaurs are herbivores, her food is generally limited to raw vegetables.

** Despite his love of food, Averell Dalton is an absolutely horrendous cook, the only food he can prepare with any degree of edibility is curried eggs (though in ''Dalton City'', Lucky Luke claims that the dish is inedible, though he might just have been screwing with Averell as part of his plan)

to:

**It applies to an extent for many other restaurants in Japan, especially food stalls. Rather than cooking foods with a multitude of techniques, restaurants tend to specialize in one, and then tend to innovate around that. For example, a shop may only make yakitori (grilled chicken on skewers) but will have dozens of combinations of different seasonings and cuts of chicken (wing sections, thighs, breast, tenderloin, gizzards, livers, hearts, etc.) with which they make their mark.

* Papyrus from ''VideoGames/{{Undertale}}'' can only cook spaghetti, and even that is [[LethalChef barely edible]] (although he seems to be steadily, albeit very slowly, improving at it).
