* In ''Anime/{{Colorful}}'', Makoto's mother spends most of the film making homemade meals, much of which the main character refuses to eat because of his resentment towards her. [[spoiler: Mitsuru yells at him about this toward the end of the film, as before Makoto had tried to commit suicide, she always bought prepackaged meals, and is now putting in far more effort that he is cruelly refusing]].



* The song [[http://www.lyricskeeper.com/mulan_soundtrack-lyrics/78065-a_girl_worth_fighting_for-lyrics.htm A Girl Worth Fighting For]] from ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' references this. One soldier's ideal girl has pale skin and bright, shining eyes; the second's will be wooed by his great strength; the third only cares if she's a good cook.

* ''Series/UnsolvedMysteries'': ''Fritz and the Soldiers'' featured a story about a young boy whose mother sheltered a few German and American soldiers under her roof, convincing them to leave their weapons aside and have the soup she was cooking. They entertained her son and one of the Germans even looked at a wound on a American's soldier and offered his recommendations and later all looked up at the stars before retiring to bed. 50 some years later, the grown-up Fritz reunited with one of them on the GI's own Golden Anniversary, [[BookEnds where they had the soup they shared long ago.]]

* A non-romantic version occurs in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Binding Blade]]'' with ChildMage Lugh. Half of his supports start with or involve him bringing leftover baked goods to the other person and them getting flustered over it (his friend Chad acts like a classic {{Tsundere}} over it). In one case he does this with the ''wyvern'' belonging to Miledy.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, the Assassins' Guild School, after going co-educational, now has a Domestic Science department aimed at rounding out its young ladies. DomSci is taught the Assassin way by its principal teacher, Miss Joan Sanderson-Reeves, who has inhumed eighteen men via her excitingly original visualisation of culinary skills. She does indeed teach that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. But if you can't push the blade in that far, you can get him to inhume himself via what he puts in through his mouth, thanks to some novel and original seasonings and additives. "And if all else fails, girls, you will also learn how to feed yourselves and others ''properly'' and ''safely'' in my classes."

* The title character of ''Manga/Karin'' does this to [[LoveInterest Usui Kenta]]... and almost always tries to justify the meal as being a different trope.

* In a ''MickeyMouseWorks'' short, Minnie becomes tired of eating the same sandwiches at picnics because Mickey can't cook. When Mickey later sees Minnie talking to José Carioca (of all people) about how he's going to prepare her a gourmet meal, he panics (thinking that Minnie wants to date José because of his cooking ability) and tries to learn how to cook. Minnie tells him that's not necessary, because she was just hiring José to cater their picnics. Guess what José prepares...
