* Arthur Dent in ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'' becomes a narrow version of this when he gets stranded on the planet Lamuella: he can only make sandwiches, but he learns to make them so well that he acquires almost priest-like status in the local community. If anything, he's even more respected than the local priest, precisely because he can make amazing sandwiches and the priest can't.

* [=LeBeau=], the French member of the ''Series/HogansHeroes'' team, is of course a good cook. The greatness comes in the fact that he can concoct excellent dinners and desserts with the materials available inside a POW camp, making him have almost MacGyver-esque cooking skills.

* Satsuki Yotsuba in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is likely the best cook in her school, which is quite impressive given that said school has over 30,000 students. She even has her own (extremely successful) restaurant.
** To give an idea of her skill, one ''sip'' of her stamina soup was enough to make Negi go from tired to HotBlooded.

* Sasami of ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' is an excellent chef. In the manga, she was so good that she even baked her sister a carrot cake that she loves despite the fact that Ayeka hates carrots. Sasami even competes in an ''IronChef''-style CookingDuel with several other child chefs.
** In ''Sasami: Magical Girls Club,'' though it's the spinoff most far removed from the source material, this remains. Sasami ''Iwakura'' cooking for her family while her parents sit and await her masterpiece is not an uncommon sight, and this version is ''not'' ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.

* In ''Manga/LoveHina'', Keitaro, Mutsumi and Shinobu are this, and are the [[TeamChef Team Chefs]] of the band.
** In his case, it's mostly a matter of his desserts being absurdly delicious, in part due to making his own Valentine's chocolate (to seem like less of a loser in public) and in part due to the Urashima family being [[LamarckWasRight a line of confectioners]].

* Tomoka Osakada from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'', maker of ''excellent'' bentos. Justified since she's said to frequently help her parents to take care of her two cute little brothers, thus she often ends up as the default cook at home.
** She's also a sort-of subversion, as she's the {{tomboy}} in a TomboyAndGirlyGirl duo and thus she defies the FeminineWomenCanCook stereotype. Not that Sakuno isn't a good chef, but Tomoka is mentioned to be the one with better cooking skills.

* Mami Tomoe from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', according to [[spoiler: Kyouko]]'s comments in the Drama CD. The cakes she served to Sayaka and Madoka when they dropped by her flat? They might have been baked by Mami herself, which makes her eventual fate all the more ironic.

* Asuna maxed out her cooking skill in ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', which is pretty impressive on its own--nobody really bothers putting much effort into non-combat skills like that. The supreme part is that she experimented with different spices so much that she was able to figure out how the system synthesizes flavor, and create things that simply do not exist in the game. Like soy sauce. One thing that makes this particularly funny is that in the beginning of the game, when offered the knowledge of how to get cream for use as a condiment, she comments that she isn't in the game to eat good food.
** The "Extra Edition" OVA shows that her cooking skills extend to outside SAO, cooking lunch for her friends during their summer vacation.

He's right, she's one of these. Suddenly he starts getting visitors at mealtime. And attempts by his relatives - including his parents - to hire her away. General opinion is that Ma Kosti could make a meal fit for the Emperor if her base ingredient was ''cardboard''.
** The last is not an exaggeration. She ''does'' make a dish fit for the Emperor-- literally, as it's served and beloved at said Emperor's wedding-- when her base ingredient is [[FutureFoodIsArtificial nutrient paste]] produced in the [[AlienLunch guts of a genetically engineered cockroach]].

Later, it's revealed that there are no servants (it would be tough to get people to work for a, y'know, ''vampire'') and Dracula has been doing all the work, such as cooking.
