* MistakenForRacist: While playing with gold leaf, Skoose mistakenly calls [[ClassicalMythology the Midas touch]] "the miner's touch." Bib corrects him and adds that "the miner's touch" doesn't even make sense, as miners would have black fingers, not gold ones. As a South Asian employee walks in, Skoose accuses Bib of thinking that only black people should work in mines.

Starring Alan Davies (sporting new facial hair) as an [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed thinly-veiled parody]] of Marco Pierre White, the show aired in 2010 for one series. It was cancelled by TheBBC because of its high cost of production.

* DoubleMeaningTitle: "Whites" refers to chefs' uniforms, but also acknowledges the main character's surname (and by extension the name of the restaurant).

* SnowballLie: Roland's improvised attempt to have the restaurant's health and safety violations dismissed in Episode 4. Noticing the inspector's charity wristband, he makes up a story about his [[InventedIndividual younger brother]] [[EverythingsBetterWithBob "Bob"]] having Parkinson's. He uses a picture of himself and Bib to sell the story, but Bib walks in unexpectedly. Roland conveys to Bib that he needs to play along and [[ObfuscatingDisability pretend to have Parkinson's]]. It works, and even softens the inspector further. Then, as the inspector is about to leave, Caroline comes up to the three of them and makes some seemingly insensitive comments about Bib's shaking. When she realizes what's going on, Caroline is outraged but goes along with it, making this a rare case of such a lie ''not'' falling apart spectacularly in the context of a CringeComedy plotline -- the only consequence is that Caroline and Bib are both furious at Roland.
