Sometimes TruthInTelevision -- it's relatively common for people who aren't particularly good at cooking (even if they're not quite at LethalChef levels) to be able to make a few dishes fairly well. This trope lies somewhere between SupremeChef and LethalChef.

* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'': The Bandaged Poissonier is a special case; as the name tells, he's a ''magnificent'' cook when it comes to fish, especially the weird sorts of fish (and other monstrosities) that dwell in the Unterzee. In terms of other foodstuffs... it's not that he's incapable, as he still [[CordonBleughChef begrudgingly manages]], the problem's that he's ''unwilling'' to cook anything outside of fish, thinking it a waste of his talents. He's insulted ''kings'' over it, and preferred to abandon the country entirely rather than continue cooking for someone who'd clearly rather stuff themselves with inferior meals.
