* ''ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse'': There was a story where two of these chefs dueled for the Supremest Chef. Somehow Goofy sneaked into the contest. If you think you know the outcome now: The local villain [[MindControl hypnotized]] the chefs to steal their secret master recipes (they all became a LethalChef while hypnotized), and inadvertently also Goofy, turning him from LethalChef into this trope.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': In the main cast, at least one of the main characters takes up the role of TeamChef. They often qualify as this trope due to the fact that most of the other members [[LethalChef cannot cook anything decent to save their lives]].



** Later on Cilan now fills in this role.

to:

** Later on in the ''Best Wishes'' series, Cilan now fills in this role.role as his gym's general theme is that of a restaurant and is dressed as a waiter.
** In the ''X and Y'', this role is split between Clemont and Serena: Clemont handles the main courses as he likens cooking to inventing, while Serena is better at making desserts.
** Mallow from ''Sun and Moon'' mainly cooks in her family's restaurant so she's naturally this. She also happens to be the first female character to take up this role after having only male characters being the SupremeChef of the main cast.

** The Daughters of each game can potentially become this is they work hard on their homemaking-related skills. i.e., Olive from the second known game can have kitchen-related works and improve her food-making skills enough to potentially: win the Harvest Festival's [[CookingDuel Cooking Contest]], gain blessings from the HouseFey [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domovoi Domovoi]], adquire a [[TheRival cooking rival]] named [[ShrinkingViolet Marthia]], decide to become a chef/bartender and get her own business as such, etc.
** As mentioned above, the second game has no shortage of good chefs: the restaurateur Balbon (a potential boss), the bartender Dimitri (ditto), Marthia herself, etc. Then, [[https://youtu.be/VOxRcPpMJ3Q?t=1m20s they all gather in the Harvest Festival to show off their cooking skills]]...



* Unlike her LethalChef sister Hisui, Kohaku from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' is a spectacular cook. [[spoiler: When she isn't purposely drugging the food to make you go insane.]] Well, even ''then'' it tastes fantastic.

** In ''VideoGame/FateExtra'', the special bento box prepared by Sakura is the ''only'' thing the school store will accept in exchange for a giant ruby that Rin wants ([[DevelopersForesight even if you somehow get all the money it's priced at]]). The description says that it takes all of your restraint not to eat the masterpiece bento yourself, despite knowing how much you need the ruby. Sakura's regular bento are the best healing item in the game, restoring all health and clearing all status effects. There is no Shirou in this game, so Sakura has taken the "supreme chef" role completely.

** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', Genis has a reputation as a SupremeChef in Iselia, and has several scenes in the beginning of the game with characters praising his cooking. Though considering his older sister Raine, it's almost a ''necessity'' for him. Genis is not the altogether best chef in the game, however: That would be Regal, who earns the special title "God of the Kitchen" in a late-game sidequest.

* In the ChaletSchool books, the Maynard family maid, Anna, and Karen, the school cook, both qualify. The former makes a mean jam (as seen in ''A Feud in the Chalet School''), and the latter's bread twists are often described as 'heavenly'.

* Antonio "Tonio" Trussardi from the fourth part ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is an odd example; his Stand, "Pearl Jam", is centered around making incredibly tasty food that will leave the eater ''literally spewing his or her guts out''. As it turns out, however, this seemingly nasty side-effect actually leaves them healthier than before; it's actually expelling and replacing damaged/infected tissue. And since Tonio is a professional chef, it's '''really good food''' on top of all that. Even the ''water'' at his place is godly (and those who didn't sleep well last night will literally cry their eyes out - but then they'll feel refreshed).
* Sunako from ''Manga/TheWallflower'' is an excellent cook, especially with Japanese food.
* Yamino from ''Manga/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok''. He's good enough to satisfy even Thor.
* Oddly enough, Haruhi in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' turns out to be this as part of her [[TeamMom Team Mom]] persona later in the books. She says she learned because her mom is a LethalChef. When she cooks for a sick brigade member Kyon thinks ''it might actually work''.
-->'''Kyon:''' I could easily see your average cold virus fleeing in the face of this kind of power. Any bacteria with an instinct for self-preservation would be wanting out about now.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Brock has learned to be a great chef from years of taking care of his siblings.
** Later on Cilan now fills in this role.
* [[BigEater Diamond]] from ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' is discovered to be this later on; Pearl isn't so surprised.
* Almost everyone in ''Manga/ChuukaIchiban''. To add more relevance? A very good chef is named "Senior Chef". An incredible chef? ''Supreme'' Chef.
* Ruruka Andou from ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' is the Super High School Level Confectionist, and can make confections that cause people to experience pure bliss. [[spoiler:Episode 8 of the Future arc shows that her chocolates can even put people into a mind-control-like state; it's so good that they'll do anything for more of it.]]
* Almost everyone in ''Manga/YakitateJapan''. Okay, so it's more of Supreme Baker. Close enough.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Sanji is this hands-down. He can tell the ingredients that went into a cake's confection ''by smell alone''.
** "Red Leg" Zeff, Sanji's mentor and father figure, is an excellent chef as well, being the owner of the floating restaurant Baratie.
** Charlotte Pudding is an excellent chef, but an especially great chocolatier; her chocolate confections are unrivaled. Her sister Charlotte Chiffon is another excellent chef, with her own specialty being her namesake, the chiffon cake. [[spoiler:Both of them and Sanji team up in the Whole Cake Island arc to make the best damn wedding cake there is, to quell Big Mom's hunger-induced rampage.]]
* 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.
* Hayate of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' has this among his "so domestic that women are jealous and threatened" skills. Hinagiku can also cook well enough to impress Hayate, and Maria is shown to be on par with both of them, even able to make things look extremely fancy without sacrificing the taste.
* Najika, the main character of ''Manga/KitchenPrincess'' has an absolute sense of taste and is constantly amazing the other characters not just with her delicious food, but often with her presentation, as well. She always thinks about the person she's cooking for and makes a dish to suit them.
* Mai Tokiha from ''Anime/MaiHime'' is such a good cook that her adopted friend [[DarkMagicalGirl Mikoto]] even cries when she has to settle for someone else's ramen. Though there were other factors involved at the same time...
* There a whole bunch of these and wannabes in ''Manga/{{Oishinbo}}''.



* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** [[RealMenWearPink Ranma Saotome]] and all of his female suitors other than Akane are one of these (and Akane wants to be one).
** Ranma's mother, Nodoka, is [[TakeOurWordForIt supposed to be truly remarkable]] -- as spoken by a man who often indulges in every kind of food he can snatch.
** Kasumi Tendō of course, in her role as replacement mom for the Tendo household. Her food is supposedly on the same level as Nodoka's -- in other words, pretty much perfect.
* Nearly ''every'' recurring chef from ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' fits the bill, but special mention must go to Yukihara's father. His food is so good that a monk quits his religion to eat it right ''then'' instead of after his fasting, and Erina Nakiri, the ''especially'' strict resident gourmet considers his cooking to be the best she's ever had, by far.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** Sasami 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 ''Series/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.
** Airi, who in her spare time between running Galaxy Police Academy, politicking, spying and berserking when someone would [[BerserkButton call her "granma"]], runs a very successful little restaurant.
* Millefeuille in ''Anime/KaitouJoker'' is such an amazing chef that anyone who tries her cooking can't stop eating. She was able to capture Queen by simply feeding the girl some of her cooking, and the girl ended up willingly gorging herself so much that she became [[TemporaryBulkChange enormously fat]] in a single night and perfectly content not to escape if it meant leaving the food. She would have done the same to Joker if he hadn't protected himself from the food's taste.
* Unexpectedly enough, BadassLongcoat AntiHero Hei from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is a very good cook. This is presumably due to [[BigEater a lot of practice]] and the fact that RealMenWearPink.
* 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]].
* Cooking is one of the many talents of Usui Takumi in ''Manga/MaidSama'', as revealed when he begins helping out in the kitchen of the [[{{Meido}} maid cafe]] where Misaki works.
* ''Manga/YumeiroPatissiere'' involves "St. Marie Academy" a school where students learn to become supreme pastry chefs (although main character Ichigo Amano started out as [[LethalChef the other kind]] before invoking this trope).
* A large portion of the cast from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' are this. As they are in the 'Gourmet Age,' great chefs are practically the world's equivalent of royalty. The legendary 'Goddess of Chefs' Frohze cooked dishes so amazing she stopped an era of war, as well as [[CoolOldLady Setsuno]], who runs a restaurant renowned for its amazing food. Toriko's HeterosexualLifePartner Komatsu is noted to have incredible potential and is already a renowned chef himself.
* Shinji Ikari of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was often shown doing the cooking, and being the best at it in his household. Of course, his only competition was Misato, who subsisted on takeout and beer before he came along. Still, {{Fanon}} began to hold the view that Shinji was a master chef, and the ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movies decided to run with this idea. His cooking is so good, even Asuka didn't want to share hers with anyone when he made lunch.
* ''Manga/BlackButler'':
** Both Sebastian and Claude.
** In addition, Soma's servant Agni is called "the Hand of God". It's not because of any martial arts mastery; it's because he's an ''impossibly'' good curry chef.
* Miyako Miyamura from ''VisualNovel/EfAFairyTaleOfTheTwo''. Explained by her both living on her own and [[spoiler: trying to become the best in everything to regain the attention of her divorced and emotionally-neglectful parents.]]

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'':
** Lelouch Lamperouge is one out of necessity of having had to take care of Nunnally for years...and because he's such a NeatFreak that only he is capable of measuring and handling every single ingredient in ''exactly'' the way he needs and wants.
** Milly Ashford, the CoolBigSis StudentCouncilPresident, is also an excellent chef, and she's eager to find any excuse to cook or bake. As a matter of fact, she's the only person with whom Lelouch is willing to cook.
* Makoto Kino AKA Sailor Jupiter of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. All the other Senshi love her cooking and a few episodes of the [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]] have them turning to her for cooking instructions.
* 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.
* Kurumu Kurono from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' makes such good cookies that even she can't resist them, ''[[{{Deconstruction}} even when she knows they're poisoned]]''! Oh, and she was the one who poisoned them to begin with.
* [[AntiAntiChrist Rin]] from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', surprisingly (or not, considering he grew up in a monastery with a bunch of bachelors). ''[[LoveableSexManiac Shima]]'' actually says (in the manga) that "it's truly a taste which wouldn't be put to shame no matter which family you marry into." while in the anime Konekomaru says "you'd make a good wife". [[HoYay Make of those comments as you will.]] WordOfGod puts his food at ImpossiblyDeliciousFood levels since he has 100% success rate for all steps and is good at ''pushing'' the recipe ahead just so to be perfect.



* Shouma Takakura from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''. His sister Himari is a rather decent one, but Shouma is still the best of the two.
* Nanako Misonou, the main character of ''Manga/OniisamaE''. She often has baking meetings with her friend Tomoko, and when she learns that Rei is living alone and has few to eat healthy, she decides to cook specifically for her.
* Kakei from ''Manga/KinouNaniTabeta'' is one of these, in a manga that centers around FoodPorn.
* Strangely, Lum of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' is both this AND a LethalChef. This is due to the fact that all her cooking is made for her own BizarreAlienBiology; humans get sick eating it (and most of it looks awful too) due to how horribly spicy it is, while the aliens can withstand it much better and love it to death.

from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''. His sister Himari is a rather decent one, but Shouma is still ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. Both Ichigo and Renji call her food the best thing they've ever tasted. Also, it says a LOT that she's skilled in BOTH Western and Eastern food, as well as [[SweetTooth pastries]]. [[note]]Chefs tend to specialize in few specific types of cooking; i.e, there's a ''reason'' why catering services tend to have a pastry chef aside of the two.

[[spoiler:Episode 8 of the Future arc shows that her chocolates can even put people into a mind-control-like state; it's so good that they'll do anything for more of it.]]
* Unexpectedly enough, BadassLongcoat AntiHero Hei from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is a very good cook.
This is presumably due to [[BigEater a lot of practice]] and the fact that all her cooking is made for her own BizarreAlienBiology; humans get sick eating it (and most of it looks awful too) due to how horribly spicy it is, while the aliens can withstand it much better and love it to death.RealMenWearPink.



* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Mami Tomoe 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.
** Madoka's father [[HouseHusband Tomohisa]] is an excellent cook. This is justified since his wife Junko is often at work and is the main breadwinner of the family, so he takes care of the house.
* ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars'' has Monsieur Goan, whose food becomes so good and affordable that the Cappies would rather eat at his restaurant than at Kawasaki's. It's such a shame that Goan is just another MonsterOfTheWeek.
* A subvereted version of this comes to play in ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' when Bianchi actually tries to to cook normally, unlike her normal Poison Cooking. They all thought it was delicious... Until they felt all hell turning inside their stomachs. Reborn even commented that she actually created a new, time delayed Poison Cooking.
* In ''Manga/{{Kekkaishi}}'', Yoshimura could count as top notch when it comes to cooking, especially cooking sweets.
* Nene in ''LightNovel/TheAmbitionOfOdaNobuna'' can make '''grass''' into a delicious meal. Really.
* 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.

* Hayate Yagami of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Everyone who eats her food loves it, especially the ever cynical Vita.

As it turns out, however, this seemingly nasty side-effect actually leaves them healthier than before; it's actually expelling and replacing damaged/infected tissue. And since Tonio is a professional chef, it's '''really good food''' on top of all that. Even the ''water'' at his place is godly (and those who didn't sleep well last night will literally cry their eyes out - but then they'll feel refreshed).
* Millefeuille in ''Anime/KaitouJoker'' is such an amazing chef that anyone who tries

* Chi-Chi from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is known to be a good cook by other characters. This is shown best in a filler episode when she threatens to stop cooking meals for Goku and Piccolo if they didn't go to driving school. Also, Videl commented on her rice and even asked for the recipe, not to mention that Chi-Chi cooks better than any of Mr. Satan's cooks.
* In the elementary ''Manga/WanderingSon'' chapters it's shown Nitori can bake quite well, though she's never shown cooking anything else.
* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Yoriko Kosaka is mentioned to be aiming to become a professional chef after she graduates high school.

* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'': Aizawa is one of these, but only for cakes and similar desserts. She's capable of making an enormous multi-tier wedding cake in a matter of minutes, and her chocolates are so good that [[ItMakesSenseInContext Akane threatened to destroy the earth]] in order to get more of them.

In his case, it's mostly a matter of minutes, 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]].
* Hayate Yagami of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. Everyone who eats

** Miura Rinaldi is also revealed
to be aware one in ''Anime/VividStrike''. Her family owns a restaurant and she developed her skills by [[AwesomenessByAnalysis observing the chefs]].
* 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.
* Mai Tokiha from ''Anime/MaiHime'' is such a good cook that her adopted friend [[DarkMagicalGirl Mikoto]] even cries when
she has this skill.to settle for someone else's ramen. Though there were other factors involved at the same time...
* Cooking is one of the many talents of Usui Takumi in ''Manga/MaidSama'', as revealed when he begins helping out in the kitchen of the [[{{Meido}} maid cafe]] where Misaki works.



* Shouma Takakura from ''Anime/MawaruPenguindrum''. His sister Himari is a rather decent one, but Shouma is still the best of the two.

Oddly, Aizawa barely seems to be aware that she has this skill.
* Yamino from ''Manga/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok''. He's good enough to satisfy even Thor.
* Shinji Ikari of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' was often shown doing the cooking, and being the best at it in his household. Of course, his only competition was Misato, who subsisted on takeout and beer before he came along. Still, {{Fanon}} began to hold the view that Shinji was a master chef, and the ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movies decided to run with this idea. His cooking is so good, even Asuka didn't want to share hers with anyone when he made lunch.
* There a whole bunch of these and wannabes in ''Manga/{{Oishinbo}}''.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Sanji is this hands-down. He can tell the ingredients that went into a cake's confection ''by smell alone''.
** "Red Leg" Zeff, Sanji's mentor and father figure, is an excellent chef as well, being the owner of the floating restaurant Baratie.
** Charlotte Pudding is an excellent chef, but an especially great chocolatier; her chocolate confections are unrivaled. Her sister Charlotte Chiffon is another excellent chef, with her own specialty being her namesake, the chiffon cake. [[spoiler:Both of them and Sanji team up in the Whole Cake Island arc to make the best damn wedding cake there is, to quell Big Mom's hunger-induced rampage.]]
* Nanako Misonou, the main character of ''Manga/OniisamaE''. She often has baking meetings with her friend Tomoko, and when she learns that Rei is living alone and has few to eat healthy, she decides to cook specifically for her.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Brock has learned to be a great chef from years of taking care of his siblings.
** Later on Cilan now fills in this role.
* [[BigEater Diamond]] from ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' is discovered to be this later on; Pearl isn't so surprised.
* 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.
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Mami Tomoe 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.
** Madoka's father [[HouseHusband Tomohisa]] is an excellent cook. This is justified since his wife Junko is often at work and is the main breadwinner of the family, so he takes care of the house.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** [[RealMenWearPink Ranma Saotome]] and all of his female suitors other than Akane are one of these (and Akane wants to be one).
** Ranma's mother, Nodoka, is [[TakeOurWordForIt supposed to be truly remarkable]] -- as spoken by a man who often indulges in every kind of food he can snatch.
** Kasumi Tendō of course, in her role as replacement mom for the Tendo household. Her food is supposedly on the same level as Nodoka's -- in other words, pretty much perfect.
* Kurumu Kurono from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' makes such good cookies that even she can't resist them, ''[[{{Deconstruction}} even when she knows they're poisoned]]''! Oh, and she was the one who poisoned them to begin with.
* Makoto Kino AKA Sailor Jupiter of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. All the other Senshi love her cooking and a few episodes of the [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]] have them turning to her for cooking instructions.
* Shirokuma of ''Manga/ShirokumaCafe'', especially since he's a polar bear. Sasako the waitress is no slouch as she runs the place when Shirokuma is away.
* Nearly ''every'' recurring chef from ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' fits the bill. Everyone who goes to Tootsuki Academy actually has a good career in cooking ahead of them even if they end up dropping out or expelled just from the sheer prestige of the school. The actual graduates usually start their own wildly successful restaurants within just a few years. Of course, even as good as the students seem in the present, some are much better than others, such as the [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil Elite Ten]], the best student cooks of the entire school from the tenth seat Erina Nakiri, the ''especially'' strict resident gourmet to Eishi Tsukasa, the first seat and currently the apex of cooking in Tootsuki (according to Rindou he's already famous worldwide among gourmands). So ''supreme'' doesn't even begin to describe the elite in this manga.
** Among the adults, special mention must go to Yukihara's father, Jouichirou Saiba. Along with being a former Second Seat, Jouichirou has such a great reputation that when he returned to the high-class cuisine circuit world, figures such as leading medical researchers and politicians, began flocking to him to get a bite. In fact, his food is so good that it can make head priests give up their religion and strip in public to get some!.
* 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.
* ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'':
** Sasami 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 ''Series/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.
** Airi, who in her spare time between running Galaxy Police Academy, politicking, spying and berserking when someone would [[BerserkButton call her "granma"]], runs a very successful little restaurant.
* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Yoriko Kosaka is mentioned to be aiming to become a professional chef after she graduates high school. Arata Kirishima and Haise Sasaki are both mentioned to be excellent cooks, which is made more impressive since both are Ghouls -- all human food tastes vile to them, making it impossible to know whether their cooking is any good. People love their cooking anyway, with BigEater Saiko considering Haise's cooking one of her top priorities.



* A large portion of the cast from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' are this. As they are in the 'Gourmet Age,' great chefs are practically the world's equivalent of royalty. The legendary 'Goddess of Chefs' Frohze cooked dishes so amazing she stopped an era of war, as well as [[CoolOldLady Setsuno]], who runs a restaurant renowned for its amazing food. Toriko's HeterosexualLifePartner Komatsu is noted to have incredible potential and is already a renowned chef himself.
* Hinano and her pancakes from ''Anime/TroubleChocolate''.
* Strangely, Lum of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' is both this AND a LethalChef. This is due to the fact that all her cooking is made for her own BizarreAlienBiology; humans get sick eating it (and most of it looks awful too) due to how horribly spicy it is, while the aliens can withstand it much better and love it to death.
* Sunako from ''Manga/TheWallflower'' is an excellent cook, especially with Japanese food.
* In the elementary ''Manga/WanderingSon'' chapters it's shown Nitori can bake quite well, though she's never shown cooking anything else.
* Almost everyone in ''Manga/YakitateJapan''. Okay, so it's more of Supreme Baker. Close enough.
* ''Manga/YumeiroPatissiere'' involves "St. Marie Academy" a school where students learn to become supreme pastry chefs (although main character Ichigo Amano started out as [[LethalChef the other kind]] before invoking this trope).
