Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Cordon Bleugh Chef is a "chef" who does know how to cook but seems to be willing to combine foods that should never be used in the same dish or, in the worst cases, even in the same universe. If the resulting dish doesn't cause an urge to purge with just the taste, finding out what was in it surely will. At the very least, many of those eating will comment that it tastes like something the dish has no right to be tasting like given its ingredients.
Some examples of disgusting dishes a Cordon Bleugh Chef might create include things like strawberry and liver pate cakes, lemon curd with ham and sardines, chocolate cod roe, parsnip brownies, fish fingers and custard, and endless other stomach-emptying recipes. Occasionally though, the combination actually turns out to taste pretty good, at least to one person out of the group.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Cordon Bleugh Chef is not about "chefs" who make food that either looks absolutely disgusting or is even harmful to the one unlucky enough to eat it; that's Lethal Chef. It also isn't when someone adjusts already-created food to make it more "appealing". That's Bizarre Taste in Food. Though it could make them into an Angry Chef, feeling like everyone else just can't appreciate "original works of art" like he can.
Compare Foreign Queasine: foreign dishes such as haggis, deep-fried tarantulas and casu marzunote "rotten cheese", Sardinian typical soft sheep milk cheese containing live insect larvae, which ferment and melt the cheese from the inside which are fairly popular in their own country but would be thought of as too disgusting to try by many people in other countries. See I Ate WHAT?! for when people don't find out what it contains till it's eaten.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Compare and contrast Overcomplicated Menu Order, which may or may not involve mixing two foods together and/or modifying it to oblivion like this trope, but coming from someone's order.

In Tamagotchi, Lovelitchi's father Lovepapalitchi loves cooking and will easily get upset if anyone tells him his food tastes terrible... which, unfortunately for him, it does since he has a thing for making very bizarre combinations of food that aren't very appealing (steak parfaits are just one example).

Ranma ½: Akane Tendo is on the border between this and Lethal Chef. While she is generally impatient and unskilled, she also seems to consider written recipes "boring", or perhaps considers herself too good to need them, and so has a bad habit of discarding them to make things up as she goes along. The fact that she doesn't pay attention to what she's using only makes things worse: intending to use white wine in curry, then finding out she added vinegar instead is the first example in the series. A similar goof happens during the "Mrs. Tendo's Recipe Book" storyline, where she goes to pour white wine over stir-fried carrots, but uses vegetable oil instead. And that's not even discussing things like adding horseradish, pineapple and mayonnaise to her vinegar curry, or making a batch of cookie dough containing watermelon, cherry, cinnamon and garlic.

Bleach: Orihime is very fond of putting ingredients together in ways that stop the hearts of everyone listening to her recipes. As a result, very few people have ever had the courage to actually try her dishes. Those that do discover she's actually an excellent cook who makes the food, against the odds, taste wonderful, as confirmed both by Rangiku in the manga and the databooks. She eventually gets a part-time job in a bakery, settling down for bakery products like bread and pastries: the gang seems to like her bread well enough, and according to the novels she's good enough to be employed full-time. The anime, however, deviates from the manga solely for comedy purposes to create a Running Gag about Orihime's food being stomach-churning.

The edutainment game Hello Kitty Big Fun Deluxe had interactive stories as one of the activities, including one where Hello Kitty makes a stew and invites a friend over for dinner, potentially making you a cordon bleugh chef, since you can add any four ingredients to the stew, ranging from meat, veggies and spices to silverware. No matter what ingredients you chose, the friend will praise your concoction as long as everything is edible. If you put anything else, the stew is described at tasting "awful" or "strange".

A sidequest in Solatorobo has Red collecting ingredients for a big stew. You're told to pick whatever you think looks good, and at one point you have the option of putting a poisonous barnacle into the pot. If you do, it turns the whole thing purple (and then a bunch of other weird colours), but it smells delicious and turns out to be fantastic, so much so you get a bonus!

The Cosby Show:
Cliff Huxtable on an early episode is shown cooking exotic dishes for his family which taste great, but then he horrifies them by telling them the ingredients. Theo makes a peanut butter, mint jelly, liverwurst and onion sandwich, just so he can eat something with familiar ingredients.
Later in the ep, he makes them a stew flavored with cow tongue and shows it to them. Rudy nearly bolts. Which actually qualifies more as a food dissonance/"Foreign Queasine"-type moment, since stewed beef tongue (using tongue that's been boiled and peeled, mind) is a common dish in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine.

Log Horizon: Very nearly everyone. Due to a quirk of the game, any foods made using the system menu are completely bland and tasteless. You can add spices (which are considered "ingredients" and still have taste), but you just end up with a bland mush sprinkled with salt. Worse, trying to cook manually results in a disgusting, inedible goop... unless you have a cooking skill. Then, you can manually create proper meals that actually taste like the thing they're supposed to be. The cooking skill was originally pretty rare, but the Crescent Moon Alliance made a whole lot of money by reformatting themselves into a food service organization before anyone else figured out the secret.

In a game that encourages experimentation, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild allows Link to be a cordon bleugh chef with the game's cooking system. Mixing blatantly incompatible materials (such as bugs or monster parts) with any other food items produces Dubious Food, while cooking only clearly inedible objects like ore or firewood produces Rock-Hard Food. They don't recover much health, and poor Link's eating animations for these items have him forcing himself to eat the Dubious Food and struggling to eat the Rock-Hard Food.

The Japanese Iron Chef:
The turkey battle. Offerings included turkey sashimi, which is this to American audience since it's not common to find any kind of poultry served uncooked, due to the risk of salmonella poisoning. On the other hand, poultry sashimi is permissible in Japan if the birds meet the inspectors' standards; some breeds (such as the poulet de Bresse and its North American derivative, the Blue Foot) are certified salmonella-free and prized in Japan for sashimi purposes (partly because of the salmonella thing, partly because the chicken is actually just that good). In the U.S., food handlers are required to serve poultry fully cooked, and not to allow the utensils used to cook it to come into contact with other food.
Tuna sorbet. For the rest of the series, whenever a chef headed for the ice cream maker, the commentators would recall it, exclaiming "ice cream machine!" in mock horror. Iron Chef America also seems to have a mixed history with the machine. Alton would tend to call out when the ice cream maker was about to be used, especially when he wasn't sure what was going into it, because the results could be hit or miss. It's so infamous that the Chairman used it as one of his "surprises" in the season 4 finale of The Next Iron Chef (the theme happened to be "Pressure", and that machine heaped a lot of it in one swoop).
Subverted with some crab ice cream, which the judges enjoyed. It was described as something along the lines of "sweet, with a hint of crab, not at all fishy, and surprisingly good!"
Also subverted with beer sherbet in the US edition's Battle Oktoberfest (featuring Bavarian ingredients). The beer wasn't the surprising part, it was the caramelized bacon on top of the ice cream that threw people off. And yet the judges loved it.
Cod soft roe ice cream. Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai was chastised by the entire tasting panel for it. He later proved he didn't learn his lesson by making trout ice cream on one of the US edition pilots. Ever since, whenever fish and ice cream get mentioned in the same segment, Alton will tend to quip things along the line of, "If that's fish ice cream, I'm leaving!" One time, Iron Chef Morimoto managed to convey his memory of that ice cream in one word: "HORROR!" But then, in the new Iron Chef Showdown, newest Iron Chef Stephanie Izard, challenged with yellowfin tuna, dared to make a tuna ice cream. For the first time, the trope got subverted as she pulled off a fish ice cream that actually worked.
Trout ice cream? That sounds vaguely familiar... (Incidentally, Shigesato Itoi was actually a panelist on Iron Chef four times, but these appearances came after EarthBound was released.)

In the British series, The Vicar of Dibley, Letitia Cropley has a fondness for mixing revolting combinations of ingredients together such as parsnip brownies, tripe salad and cakes topped with strawberries and ketchup. Her reputation for disgusting recipes was so famous in Dibley, she was known as The Queen of Cordon Bleurgh, thus making her the Trope Namer. This extended into other areas too. She once put pineapples in the church flower arrangements.

In the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, Michelangelo was infamous for ordering and making pizzas with bizarre and improbable combinations of toppings. James Rolfe and his friends tried eating them, and found most of them to be disgusting.
In the 2012 cartoon, his attempts at cooking early on in the series are a pizza milkshake (a "pishake") like the Bill Harley example above and pizza noodle stew. The former looks as unappetizing as it sounds, but Leatherhead genuinely liked the latter.

The "Magical Cooking" one-shot of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Comic A la Carte official anthology book featured Vivio baking some cookies for Einhart. While she's normally a pretty decent chef, she kinda oversold her abilities, and now she felt that she had to bake something more impressive than usual. So she took an ordinary cookie recipe, added some powdered milk, filled it with caviar before baking it, smothered it with a bottle of brandy...

Come Dine With Me: One British contestant was so deluded as to think her savoury trifle was a good idea: a classic English fruit, custard and cream trifle, only with the added ingredient of bacon.note A savoury "trifle" could work by layering a quiche filling over something like bread soaked in jellied broth and topping with mayonnaise or perhaps a savoury-flavoured whipped cream, but that's not what this cook did. She came last.

Stand Still, Stay Silent gives us the unfortunate Team Mom that is Mikkel Madsen. His hot meals tend to run towards the "bland, boring, horribly watery fish stew/soup/whatever" school of not-again. Mind you, this isn't by choice: he's working with a severly limited larder which he didn't select. Tins of tuna, oatmeal and carrots predominate. Possibly with tallow candle back-up. Don't ask; don't tell. Also, it's not his fault if other team members dump, say, a whole, undressed squirrel into the pot behind his back. They can't afford to waste even one furry disaster, so...

In the Sweet Valley High book Jessica's Cookie Disaster, Jessica's first attempt to replicate her accidental spilling of some extra ingredients into her cookie dough that resulted in unbelievably delicious cookies is adding pineapple flavoring and licorice extract to her dough. Not surprisingly, the cookies look and taste absolutely disgusting. Her other attempts at combining ingredients don't fare much better, and the actual combination that made the delicious cookies turns out to be a simple mixture of vanilla and almonds.

In the Madeline episode Madeline at Cooking School, the girls and Pepito have to make lunch for Lord Cucuface when their cook Mrs. Murphy gets sick. Having never cooked before, they set out to make simple sandwiches, but get overly creative with the ingredients: brie, roquefort, camembert, lingonberry jam, olives, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, chili peppers, and (by accident) a whole shaker of salt. Predictably it makes Lord Cucuface sick and leads him to promptly enroll them in cooking school.

Food Wars!
Soma is an absolute whiz in the kitchen, capable of turning even the most basic ingredients into dishes so good they're almost literally Better Than Sex. The flip side is his infamous squid tentacles with peanut butter, which makes the people who eat them feel violated. His father is much the same way, producing dishes which have made him a GOD in the culinary world... and a snake-based dish Soma describes as "legendarily bad." There was also a mention of the infamous sardines in strawberry jam. In both these cases, there is some justification, as both have cooking styles which rely heavily on "brute force"-experimentation to create new flavor combinations (rather than extrapolating from known recipes or using knowledge of food chemistry), so it's pretty inevitable some of their experiments would end like this. However, both father and son take a certain level of sadistic glee in watching people's reactions to their cordon bleugh experiments.
Soma's classmate Alice is a devotee of molecular gastronomy, a real-life culinary movement that (as mentioned elsewhere on this page) uses science to (in essence) subvert this trope. Many of her dishes involve ingredients you wouldn't necessarily think really worked together until you tasted them...and then it snaps into place. A lot of her recipes seem to be specifically inspired by Heston Blumenthal (who, besides the strange combinations and application of new techniques, loves messing with people's expectations, a trait exhibited by Alice), whose cooking is listed later on this page.
Nao Sadatsuka, who is in the same year as them, has a different approach to this. She specializes in boiled dishes which smell and look repulsive at first glance, but they taste so good, once people get a taste they can't stop eating, comparing it to BDSM.

Our Miss Brooks features Connie Brooks' landlady, Mrs. Davis. The outlandish dishes she prepares for breakfast are an early series Running Gag. Davis is responsible for such concoctions as "Armenian pancakes" (soaked in sour goat's milk), "blubber burgers" (seal fat fried in whale oil), and pine cone cereal (self-explanatory). Her regular pancakes are tasty, but contain such odd ingredients as a teaspoon goose liver.
This is, in part, Early Installment Weirdness. Like all great Cordon Bleugh Chefs, Mrs. Davis' cooking is beyond reproach when applied to conventional dishes. In the main, that's exactly what Davis does in later radio episodes and in the television series.
Still, her passion for Cordon Bleugh never dies entirely. Her dreaded Pensacola popovers are guaranteed to sicken man or frog. She can make a soup so spicy it sends her pet cat Minerva flying over the backyard fence. Her limburger omelette frightens away birds. Her veal parmesan may be excellent, but isn't exactly appetizing when served at breakfast.

The Dick Tracy Show episode "Cooked Crooks" has Joe Jitsu disguised as a renowned French chef in order to fool Stooge Viller and Mumbles, who have been offered $5000 to steal a valuable recipe from the chef. Joe's recipe calls for such ingredients as antelope hooves, bees' knees, and a secret ingredient (which turns out to be gunpowder, much to the villains' dismay).

In one strip, Jon can't figure out how to get the meatloaf inside the danish...
In another, he made Garfield wienie gelatin. After Garfield ate it, he said his mouth liked it, but his stomach was still trying to make up its mind.
In one strip Irma gives Garfield and Jon what looks like ice cream cones? It's actually scoops of mashed potatoes in cones.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Misato Katsuragi likes to mix TV-dinners together, such as combining ramen and curry.
In the spin-off video game Girlfriend of Steel Rei, the stoic, heroic death seeker, isn't game enough to try it until she's seen that it's okay. Tasting it results in a Pastel-Chalked Freeze Frame played for laughs. The only exception is PenPen who instantly passes out upon sampling it. The reason is implied to be a combination of Misato's Hard-Drinking Party Girl nature, her general slobbishness, and, most of all, her reliance on buying only the cheapest instant food she can get and mixing it together in an imitation of finer cuisine. How well she cooks when she actually uses fresh ingredients is never shown.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine:
In "Chocolate Milk", the hipster chocolate milk restaurant owner presents Jake and Terry with an ink-black concoction he calls "dark milk" that uses bitter chocolate to enhance the sourness of raw milk. Jake and Terry are not pleased.
In "Boyle's Hunch", Boyle is fond of eating takoyaki, a Japanese octopus fritter which Jake dismissingly refers to as a "fish doughnut". Later, Jake tries to approximate it by putting lox on a chocolate éclair.

In Coraline, the titular Coraline hates whenever her father tries out new recipes of his. As this includes a leek and potato stew with tarragon garnish and melted Gruyere cheese—a fairly conventional, even classic, combination, it may be that he simply isn't that good of a cook. Although she does like the pizza he makes.
Given that Coraline is very young, another explanation is that he's a perfectly good cook by grown-up standards.

Final Fantasy XIV: Patch 5.3's main scenario quest reveals that most of the population of Sharlayan are these. Since they're a country of scholars who prioritize efficiency over all else, their food is often made to be as nutritious as possible at the cost taste and tactile experience. Tataru ends up following a recipe for a loaf of bread that includes ground-up fish and vegetables. While the resulting product allegedly smells delicious, it tastes like crap and is incredibly dense.

In an episode of As Told by Ginger, Carl develops an interest in cooking, and creates dishes like "Feet Loaf" (regular meatloaf cut into foot shapes), "Mac-n-Sneeze" (macaroni and cheese), and "Potatoes Au Rotten" (potatoes au gratin). They're popular with both his family and the kids at school, and he and Hoodsie sell the food to their classmates from a refurbished hot dog stand, until the school cafeteria cook, Chef Bob (primarily motivated by jealousy) has the health department close them down.

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, one of the quests for the Dark Brotherhood involves impersonating a famous chef known as the Gourmet, in order to put poison in the Emperor's food. Rather than cooking the meal yourself, you are giving instructions to the Emperor's personal chef. For each step, you are given several choices for what to tell her to put in, the poison being the only one that actually matters. Possible ingredients include vampire dust, a giant's toe, and a gold coin. The plan doesn't even work, as it's not really the Emperor.

Persona 4:
When making a list of ingredients for curry, Yukiko and Chie include such things as radishes, kimchi, chocolate, and yogurt. Later, Rise uses foie gras in an omelette. The main character can also be this if the player selects the wrong options when making lunch. The main problem with Yukiko and Chie's ingredient choices is that they seem to have gotten the wrong end of the stick. Chocolate and yoghurt are both perfectly reasonable ingredients in a curry... but they should be plain yoghurt and dark cooking chocolate (90%+ cocoa). However they decided to use fruit yoghurt and mint chocolate.
Rise, meanwhile, seems to be okay on ingredients, but makes her food way too spicy, at one point producing something that knocks poor Yukiko out in one mouthful.
Even the protagonist has the option to be this if the player chooses the wrong options while cooking. You have the option to spray cologne on creme caramel, of all things.
Naoto is the only girl who avoids being this. She does make the effort to read instructions, but it's implied she doesn't like to cook anyway.
Nanako became one as the girl's proxy because of the girls in Golden as a result of numerous suggestions from Yukiko, Chie and Rise (Naoto tried to stop them but was unable to). Among other things, she was told to include wheatgrass, fish sausage, bacon, iced coffee, bell peppers, vinegar, and fermented squid. Her chocolate was so bad that it came out looking like a Slime Persona. Oh, and eating a single bite struck the PC with Fear and incapacitated him until the following morning.

Love Live! School Idol Festival: In μ's side's Main Chapter 15. Kotori Minami had put the cheese cake she brought into a hot pot, ruining it. It is noted that Kotori can cook well in all media adaptions (including "School Idol Festival" itself), she was just reluctant to analyse any information come from her childhood friend Honoka Kosuka no matter what(even a bizarre mistake - taking example for that chapter, she asked everyone to bring their own favorite food to be hot pot's ingredients, without specifically mentioning "for hot pot").
Explicitly subverted in a event story in Love Live! School idol festival ALL STARS which set in an alternative universe. When Kotori was taking the cheese cake out of the refrigerator, Eli Ayase worried she might just put them into a vegetable pot. This time, however, Kotori had no intention to do it - instead she was just sharing the cake to everyone and eat them in place (A notable mention here, Honoka is not featured in that event story).

With the "Survival" skill in Fallout: New Vegas, you can concoct food from such lovely ingredients as mutant flies (Bloatfly sliders), mutant ants (Fire ant fricassée), mutant goats (Bighorner steaks), and whatever 200-year-old TV dinners you can find. Not only that, but in the DLC Dead Money, you can get a recipe for a "Sierra Madre Martini", made from mixing mashed-up junk food with toxic residue in a rusty tin can. Bottoms up!note Actually, it's not a bad concoction. It boosts your maximum hit points, endurance, and strength for four minutes, and all you have to worry about is potential alcohol (from where?) addiction. It should be noted both Dean Domino and the description of the perk that lets you make the recipe mention how foul-tasting the martini is.
Fallout 4's Far Harbor add-on includes mutant seafood recipes such as Fried Fog Crawler, Poached Angler, and Gulper Slurry. Crafting one of these earns you the "Just Add Salt Water" achievement.

In the Digimon Adventure movie, Taichi and Hikari's mom Yuuko has come up with such original dishes as spinach cookies, potato juice and beef jerky shakes. Somehow Izzy/Koushirou likes all of it. In the dub of the movie, she states "It's the first time I've used flour to make a cake", when Izzy asks if he's put in enough. It gets burnt in the microwave, anyway.
Izzy still gets sick from the cooking, which is no mean feat, considering an early episode established him as liking things such as mustard and jelly beans on eggs.
Worth noticing that this is all added by the English dub. The original movie Bokura no War Game had Koushiro needing to pee because Taichi's mother served him too much (perfectly normal) Oolong tea.
There's also Mimi's mom, who makes kimchi fried rice with strawberries and cream. Mimi doesn't mind at all and seems to take after her in Digimon Adventure tri. when she tops Sora's savory cooking with whipped cream and jelly beans. In spite of this, the epilogue to Digimon Adventure 02 shows that she became a celebrity chef.

One sub-arc in the Credomar arc features Schlock and Ebbirnoth's adventures in 31st-century human cuisine (which, by that point, has stagnated to the point that they've resorted to combining things in ways that should never have been). The crowning moment for this comes with smutto, a combination of huitlacoche or "corn smut" and natto, which overlaps with Lethal Chef because man was never meant to eat corn smut (diseased corn) or natto (fermented soybeans) in the first placenote And yet if one ventures onto Youtube and searches for smutto, a video can be found by 'Cooking with the Old Wolf' of a fellow who actually dared eat the inedible, and pronounced it to not be utterly wretched, in that he would be willing to eat it again if it was the only food available while starving on a desert island.
While not a Cordon Bleugh ingredient combination (by virtue of having only one ingredient), the Chupaqueso is another Schlock example of Cordon Bleugh cooking techniques. Literally 'cheese sucker', this Mexican... ish... dish is most accurately described as 'melted cheese wrapped in fried cheese, garnished with cheese'. It should be noted that Howard Taylor makes these at home. They're pretty good, just unhealthy, but mercenaries rarely live long enough to feel the consequences anyways.
Ch'vorthq is a good cook, he just overapplies his prosthetic whisk hand in about the same way that being trapped in the Earth's core would overapply heat and pressure. At one point in "Broken Wind" he serves up an entire breakfast -- bananas, apples, bacon and fried eggs -- as a smoothie, stating proudly that the emulsion is so fine you almost don't need to digest it.

Baldroy in Black Butler would probably be a decent cook if he didn't think the goal of cooking was to destroy the food violently. The real reason he's on the Phantomhive household staff is because he's one hell of a gunner. The cooking part is mainly for looks.

Charlie, Major Adams and then Chris Hale's assistant and cook on Wagon Train. Everyone complains about Charlie's cooking, although he seems borderline competent and occasionally good. One of his major problems seem to be adding less-than-popular ingredients to his stews, like gopher or even buzzard. One episode had him make birds nest soup out of an actual bird's nest.

Dave Lister from Red Dwarf, due to being a total fetishist for spicy food, eats and drinks some of the most disgusting concoctions. His early morning pick-me-up of choice is chilled vindaloo sauce, he's been mentioned as having eaten kippers vindaloo for breakfast, he enjoys cornflakes with grated raw onion and tabasco sauce as toppings, and he's been mentioned eating "triple fried eggs with chili sauce and chutney" sandwiches. Rimmer has been seen eating the sandwich, admittedly, and apparently it's actually quite good. (Rimmer turned it into a metaphor about Lister himself: on paper it sounds utterly terrible, but people seem to like it.) The best part is Lister thinks he saw the recipe in a book on bacteriological warfare.

This is a frequent trademark of Binging with Babish when he tries to follow TV show recipes to the letter, and finds that a lot of the tastes really don't go well together. Typically, he'll follow this up with his own version that tries to reconcile the flavours a bit better.

In 3-gatsu no Lion, Hina's initial, unguided attempt at making bento for Takahashi results in a bad tasting meal, partially because of bad seasoning and partially because she mix-and-matches a lot of ingredients and sub-dishes in an overzealous attempt at making an extravagant meal.

In Yearning: A Gay Story, whoever makes the fries for the college campus's burger place seems to have an alien's sense of which combinations of foods qualify as tasty. Some of the numerous "creative" flavors the fries have been served in are: spinach and kumquat; garlic and anchovy juice; durian and sour cream; and tabasco, horseradish, and chocolate (which Nikhil refers to as "pain, torture, and eternal torment"). The same burger place has also been known to serve other things like squid burgers and spinach onion rings.

TFS at the Table: Grammy the sea hag is all about experimenting with Secret Ingredients — and she doesn't really seem to care if they're considered edible or not. Dishes seen on-screen include "chicken" (actually seagull) soup, pufferfish pie (poison included), Abyssal crab omelette (shells and all), and tomato soup with mandrake (still screaming, which even she found kind of unsettling) and Healing Potion (with bits of broken glass from the bottle), and she has been known to cook sentient beings like tabaxi. Whenever the players eat her food they're required to make a Constitution save...however, it's subverted because if they do make their saves, the food tastes pretty good and confers some kind of in-game bonus (like the pufferfish pie giving an Armor Class bonus), while failing just produces some comedic effect but no actual penalty (the pufferfish poison numbing their mouths for a few mintues).

This seems to be at least part of Setsuna's problem in Fire Emblem Fates, since she mentions to Azama that she normally tries to combine many different kinds of food in an attempt to please everyone. The resulting dishes usually end up pleasing no one.

Aurica of Ar Tonelico makes decent healing items with food such as "BBQ Soda" and a surprisingly good purple dish in Cross Edge... even if none of the ingredients they had available could make purple.
In the second game, Jacqui's cooking includes both powerful healing items and attack items, but none of them are exactly according to the recipe. For instance, her first is a rather tasty-looking sushi roll that is a useful healing item straight to endgame. The recipe was for cake.

Arthur:
"Arthur's dad is actually fairly good at it [cooking], when he doesn't experiment." Oddly enough, he actually is a professional chef and he does it for a living, but he tries experimenting at home so much that we mostly hear of the gross stuff, including "experiments" that look bad enough to make you sick, and there's a song devoted to his abominations in the Musical Episode. When he makes something good it becomes the centerpiece of an entire episode.
Arthur's paternal grandmother is much the same, and only Buster, who has an iron-clad stomach, would eat the cookies she made for the bake sale. Perhaps Mr. Read learned to cook early on because of this.
Buster himself seems like a subversion of this trope, as he actively creates weird combinations of food, but due to his aforementioned ironclad stomach, actually enjoys it and never seems to understand why others don't.

As far as Cordon Bleugh Ice Cream Makers go, there's the Iceman from The Touryst. Before you get him something actually appropriate for making an ice cream flavor, his specialties include such incongruous items as salami salmon and vanilla onion. He himself laments those flavors tend to drive away the crowds looking for something to beat the heat.

Raine Sage from Tales of Symphonia. She wouldn't be the worst chef in the game if not for her nasty habit of experimenting with cooking. For example: everyone makes sweet cake; chocolate, vanilla, carrot, it's always sweet. So Raine decides to be a pioneer and bake a spicy cakenote There are, in fact, such things as "spice cakes". They are not, however, supposed to be "spicy" in the same manner as, say, curry. Or how about lemon rice cooked inside a lemon, and topped with garam masala?
She can, however, cook spaghetti.

Kalinin of Full Metal Panic! cooked a borscht with ingredients such as cocoa powder and miso paste. He enjoys it since he's trying to recreate the cooking of his late wife out of nostalgia, but no one else does. There's also a subtle implication that his wife intentionally made the borscht bad to punish him for being married to the job and away so often. Kalinin doesn't notice.

Subverted in one Batman comic when Alfred and Batman were briefly stranded at a Swiss chalet. While Batman worked on sending out a call for pick-up, Alfred took stock of the provisions and cooked up a spinach fajita. Batman asked quizzically why, in Switzerland, Alfred hadn't used chocolate instead of spinach. Alfred replied that "A chocolate fajita would be barbarian." However, he later stared at his own portion of the spinach fajita with disfavor and said, "It may have been a mistake. Perhaps the chocolate could work."

From Lost Universe, Millie's cooking actually IS excellent: in spite of producing such horrible-sounding concoctions as bacon ice cream and raisin jerky pizza, everyone likes it if they try it. On the other hand she is something of a Lethal Chef... Due to obliterating the kitchen in fiery explosions every time she cooks, explosions which nonetheless leave the fruits of her labor unblemished.

In Taskmaster, the contestants' final task of the first season was to make a meal using ingredients starting with every letter of the alphabet. This forced pretty much every contestant to fall victim to this trope, the worst offender being Tim who used quince, kettle chips, and dog food in the same dish.

General rule of thumb of the Persona series — the more feminine the woman, the less edible their food is.
In Persona 3, Fuuka's Social Link requires a high Courage to begin because the food is so awful the PC won't go near it otherwise.
Persona 4:
When making a list of ingredients for curry, Yukiko and Chie include such things as radishes, kimchi, chocolate, and yogurt. Later, Rise uses foie gras in an omelette. The main character can also be this if the player selects the wrong options when making lunch. The main problem with Yukiko and Chie's ingredient choices is that they seem to have gotten the wrong end of the stick. Chocolate and yoghurt are both perfectly reasonable ingredients in a curry... but they should be plain yoghurt and dark cooking chocolate (90%+ cocoa). However they decided to use fruit yoghurt and mint chocolate.
Rise, meanwhile, seems to be okay on ingredients, but makes her food way too spicy, at one point producing something that knocks poor Yukiko out in one mouthful.
Even the protagonist has the option to be this if the player chooses the wrong options while cooking. You have the option to spray cologne on creme caramel, of all things.
Naoto is the only girl who avoids being this. She does make the effort to read instructions, but it's implied she doesn't like to cook anyway.
Nanako became one as the girl's proxy because of the girls in Golden as a result of numerous suggestions from Yukiko, Chie and Rise (Naoto tried to stop them but was unable to). Among other things, she was told to include wheatgrass, fish sausage, bacon, iced coffee, bell peppers, vinegar, and fermented squid. Her chocolate was so bad that it came out looking like a Slime Persona. Oh, and eating a single bite struck the PC with Fear and incapacitated him until the following morning.

Cap'n Turbot of PAW Patrol makes a variety of seafood dishes that fail to appeal to others besides himself (and sometimes Wally). Considering these dishes include things like sickly green "jellyfish jam" and a fish-shaped cake that was actually made from fish products, one can understand why.

In Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, here's a tip when it comes to Kyoko Kuremi's coffee: Stay away. She puts some odd things such as oyster sauce, yogurt, sea urchins and mayonnaise in her coffee, and forces the Protagonist and Arata into tasting them. Oddly enough, this is how you discover Alphamon's been possessing her — he put mayo in his coffee to inform the kids who he really was. In fact, it's mostly his fault the Kyoko you meet is like this. When you meet her in the epilogue, she's receptive to the idea but thinks it's odd.

Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende has an old section called "Zettai ni Oishii" (Absolutely Delicious) Series. These are basically Iron Chef in reverse; they are provided with a food type as their end target (mochi, pizza, tempura, pasta, etc), but they have freedom in ingredients. Some efforts are laudable (as in Yamazaki's petit tomato tempura which ended up getting 2/10 simply because tomato can be very hot), while some fall squarely to this trope. For example, Endou's insistence on using Frisk, a very hot breath mint par Fisherman's Friend Extra Strong for his cooking, like Frisk Pizza or Frisk Tempura. Matsumoto settles on using very unusual ingredients, such as a whole tuna head for pizza, cake for flavored rice, and watermelon-and-milk-cream pasta. The ultimate example would be the toothpaste and mouthwash pasta. On a scale of 1 to 10 hearts and 1-2 skull marks, that one gets two full skeletons as a rating.
An inversion in the pasta episode is Hamada's Celeb Party pasta: Spaghetti with foie gras sautee, consommé soup, and ham salad inside a roasted chicken. All the contestants hated it so much it is given a full skeleton.

When Heston Blumenthal guested on Terry Wogan's Radio 2 breakfast show in late 2008, he made a dessert (pudding) that looked exactly like a pork pie but was made with ice cream and other traditonal dessert ingredients, a pot of "mustard" that was actually a sweet fruit puree (to drizzle alongside the faux "pork pie"), and "boiled eggs" that were made from white chocolate and other similar ingredents. Crowning Food Moment of Awesome, anyone? (Sir Terry raved on about the food and it caused not a fair amount of drooling from the audience.)

Scooby-Doo: Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, but only because they love food like this. If they had to cook for someone else, they would probably spare them from eating something like chocolate-covered eggplant burgers (with hot sauce!).

In CLANNAD, Sanae Furukawa is always baking bizarre kinds of bread. Unfortunately, she just happens to be extremely sensitive about it, and runs out of the store crying when her work is insulted. The first time it happened, Tomoya did so without knowing what would happen, and every other time, her own husband, Akio, does it, leaving him to run after her with the bread in his mouth shouting "I LOVE IT!" It becomes a Running Gag in the anime. Apart from her bread, she's actually a good cook.

In Ikemen Sengoku, Mitsunari has enough of a reputation for this that the main character dreads having to eat a rice ball he personally chose the filling for in one story event. The filling turns out to be a mixture of red-bean paste and strawberries which, while tasty in a daifuku mochi, is not so tasty when combined with the salted vinegar rice shell of a rice ball.
In another story event, Sasuke and the main character make a birthday rice cake for Kenshin that has chestnut icing and is decorated with egg slices, cucumber, and shrimp... which is actually more appealing than their initial plan of wasabi icing and sushi toppings. In fairness, they had to make do with the ingredients available in the Sengoku period where foods like chocolate and vanilla are scarce and knew and Kenshin, a man who would happily eat nothing but pickled plums all day if he could, seems to enjoy it well enough.

Andy has actually lowered her family's expectations to the point that in one strip, Roger tastes the contents of a pot on the stove and gushes about how much better than her normal cooking it is, begging to know what he just tasted. It turns out to be grout for the cracks in the driveway — and also a ticket to the couch for Roger.

SpongeBob SquarePants is great at making Krabby Patties, but his other cooking can be more suspect. In the episode "Something Smells", he makes a sundae out of available ingredients when he was lacking normal ones: ketchup, onions, and peanuts growing on the window sill of his bathroom (as well as the dirt they came with). The resulting concoction gives him epic bad breath. Then there's "Patty Hype", where, while his idea for Pretty Patties wasn't bad taste wise, somehow manages to turn folks into various colors.

She prepares a dish of pepper-pot soup (a Caribbean dish with ingredients such as pepper, beef, tapioca sauce, cinnamon, garlic, onion, thyme, basil, sugar and salt) and serves it to the gang...but the only ones who can manage to eat it are Choji and Kushina, the latter of whom gives Ino pointers on how she could improve the dish. Choji charitably says the soup "doesn't smell toxic," but Naruto, Sasuke and Shikamaru are far less forgiving, saying it "tastes like vomit."

When Ace of Cakes Duff Goldman was on Iron Chef America, the Battle he faced Michael Symon in had chocolate and chiles as the theme ingredients (meaning BOTH had to be used together in a dish; it could be either sweet or savory, but not all-chocolate or all-chile). This isn't as weird as it seems; mixing chocolate and chiles is an old tradition in Central America and Mexico going back to pre-Columbian times. It works because unlike store-bought milk chocolate, pure chocolate has a bitter flavor profile that works well with spice whether you mix it with sweet flavors or savory ones. Chile-flavored chocolate remains fairly common in these parts, especially when further mixed with other spices; the famed mole sauce of Mexican cuisine usually features chiles, chocolate, and spices brought from the Old World by the Spanish (especially cinnamon and cumin). Also, in the US, Mexicans stereotypically have a soft spot for chocolate with chile pepper and cinnamon. Even the famed Tabasco brand came out with a chocolate bar spiced with their famous sauce because of the increasing Hispanic interest (and general interest, there being no shortage of Anglo chileheads in the US).

LoadingReadyRun:
The Iron Stomach challenge which crosses this with Masochist's Meal. One notable challenge was the Banana Onion Juice.
There have also been a couple of different variations of challenges meant to make something as good as possible with odd combinations (such as sandwiches with non-sandwich toppings, or having to do something with what you get from two different fast food restaurants), which tend to sound like this — some of the actual results were apparently tasty, however.

Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. She's actually a pretty good cook for the most part, but she's capable of veering into this territory when she gets overly creative. The strawberry cinnamon cilantro cupcakes, in particular, were so bad that Pinkie herself could barely stomach them.

Doctor Who:
While this is more focused on the food and not the chef, on Satellite Five in "The Long Game", Rose hands Adam a slushie-type ice drink that is apparently beef-flavored.
In "The Eleventh Hour", after giving up on nearly every other food combination following his completely altered taste buds, the Eleventh Doctor settles on fish fingers dipped in custard (which several sources state actually tastes quite good).

Sunless Sea: Justified in the Bandaged Poissonier's case, as his experimentation is extremely necessary. It's the only way he could get that good with the ingredients he's using, which are commonly fugu-levels of deadly if improperly done, and the proper way to make them tends to be terribly obscure and/or difficult. His kitchen looks like an alchemical laboratory precisely because he needs to try everything for every last new ingredient before he can find a proper way to do it. He will usually eat his mistakes himself (it's okay, he's already dead), thankfully, but even the good dishes can be eerie, if still tasty. This is also what will happen if you demand non-fish ingredients; he doesn't like doing that, but will at least try.

In the Mother series, there's an item called Strawberry Tofu, which was meant as a joke on bad combinations of food. Well, someone literally made it and Itoi tried it and it does not work well. There's a video on YouTube of someone suffering while trying to eat it.
Since Americans would be much less likely to show revulsion from it (particularly if familiar with tofu-based vegan ice cream), Nintendo translated the item as "trout ice cream" in EarthBound. Hilarious in Hindsight for fans of the game that later went on to watch Iron Chef.

Top Chef: Bacon ice cream. Which is then subverted by Richard Blais in the finale of Top Chef: Chicago. His bacon ice cream was generally very well-received. Blais himself would seem to fit the trope at first glance, but his food overall was often among the judges' favorites throughout the season.
Lampshaded earlier in the season by the judges' panel when Blais served them smoked salmon with a white chocolate-wasabi sauce. One judge's comment to him (paraphrased) was "When you described the dish, my immediate reaction was 'White chocolate and wasabi? What were you thinking'?" In the final judging, though, every single judge deemed that dish far and away the best of the night.
Season 2 actually had a challenge to create a unique flavor of ice cream. Marcel decided to make a Bacon and Avocado ice cream. That dish was considered to be one of the worst dishes ever to be served on the show. From the same season, Sam mixed watermelon and bleu cheese with gnocchi, and Ilan made a chocolate ganache with chicken liver. Both these dishes... didn't go over so well with the judges either.
Note to Dale of season 4: Butterscotch is WAY too sweet to put on scallops. That dish was so bad that Dale got sent home despite another chef screwing up TWO dishes.

Hell's Kitchen:
Some of the contestant's signature dishes fall into this (Seth's ratatouille with honey), but one of the worst was "Matt's Exotic Tartare". Scallops, raw venison, capers, caviar and white chocolate. The dish was apparently so disgusting that it made Gordon Ramsay vomit into a bin. Not a good start, Matt.
Antonia also accomplished the infamous feat of making Ramsay vomit with her Mardi Gras Gumbo, only this time Gordon forced the other contestants to taste it as well and they all looked to be within an inch of throwing up themselves.
Also in challenges when chefs want to try something new, Ralph from season 1 tried a ribeye steak with white peaches.
Also the same Matt who made his “Exotic Tartare” and made Chef Ramsey throw it up, later suggested making "sushi pizza on a tortilla" for a challenge, fortunately that was shot down in a hurry.
One subversion was in Season 6 involved a recurring challenge where the team members have to roll a giant dice with letters on the faces, name an ingredient that starts with that letter, and then prepare a dish using all the ingredients. The women's team ended up with a fantastic assortment of rabbit and appropriate ingredients, while the guys got figs first because it was the only "F" ingredient Dave could think of, at which point the rest of the guys figured they were already boned and chose haddock, apples, tomatoes, angel hair pasta... and actually won the challenge. Granted, they were helped by the tomato and fig sauce that Kevin came up with actually tasting very good and Ariel accidentally screwing up the women's dish by adding a disgustingly overpowering garlic dressing, but the men were stunned by how well their dish worked, as was Chef Ramsay.

In the Family Guy episode "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein", Peter invites his new Jewish friend Max Weinstein for dinner. However, when Max sees that Lois has made marshmallow and fish casserole, he tries to politely tell her he can't eat it. Luckily for him, she assumes it's because it's not kosher, and, after a long sideways look at the "dish", Max agrees.
There's also "The King is Dead" when Lois makes Peter "French toast," actually a pile of mismatched foods including an entire fish, to show him how changing something too much can make it unrecognizable and bad.

El Fuerte is the fighting chef in Street Fighter IV who tried to combine chanko nabe and borscht together to create the ultimate dish. It's pretty good at turning faces blue.
He does it again by putting a whole carrot, a whole fish, fishbones, a rotten tomato, aojiru (kale juice, which is rich in nutrients but bitter to taste) and baker's chocolate in chili soup. (Although this last one isn't that unusual — chocolate, especially dark chocolate, goes very well when added to chili. Mexican chocolate is meant to be spicy and bitter.)
It's implied in some sources (like the UDON comics) that the problem with El Fuerte is that his technical skill is at least average (he is seen working in a restaurant, after all), but he does fine only and IF only he sticks to the recipe itself AND when he's making Mexican food. Shit goes down the toilet when he experiments, and since that's almost everything we see him do...

Since Americans would be much less likely to show revulsion from it (particularly if familiar with tofu-based vegan ice cream), Nintendo translated the item as "trout ice cream" in EarthBound. Hilarious in Hindsight for fans of the game that later went on to watch Iron Chef.

Nozdryov's cook in Dead Souls, who has an egregious approach to cooking — he throws in everything that is standing around, it seems.

Tales of Destiny 2: Harold is one deliberately, as she can cook food for herself with no trouble (though she fails at lab safety and makes her food in beakers and flasks) but when cooking for others she can't resist adding something she's trying to test out on humans, often making everyone sick.

Neelix, the ship's cook on Star Trek: Voyager. He does prove on several occasions that he can cook food the crew likes (in one episode, he does a Rokeg blood pie for B'Elanna) provided he has the ingredients and sticks to the recipe. However, between his love of experimental cooking and Voyager's erratic access to ingredients (some of which are previously unheard of and/or edible In Name Only), the result is complaints and avoidance of the mess hall more often than not.

A major part of Kingdom of Loathing is combining items into edible foods. Sometimes the combinations are obvious, like putting sausage on a pizza, but some of the combinations are things that are only going to be found by trial and error, like combining batgut with spices to make bat haggis. And yes, in-universe, that is a good food (or at least a decent one).
The Avatar of Jarlsberg path allows you to make consummate foods using Jarlsberg's Cosmic Kitchen, which are pretty much described as the platonic ideal of their respective foods. Jarlsberg's cocktail-making abilities, on the other hand, are far more limited and pretty much an alcoholic version of this trope, leading to combinations like sauerkraut and lager or rum and nacho cheese.
Three items in particular come to mind: white chocolate and tomato pizza, chorizo brownies, and tomato daiquiris (a Bloody Mary made with beer instead of vodka). The first two only come into being when a chef-in-the-box explodes; the latter, when a bartender-in-a-box explodes. Eating enough of the first and drinking enough of the last get you trophies.

Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2, and its Expansion Pack Off The Record allow all Chuck and Frank to blend pairs of consumable items into a blender and see what sort of mixed drink pops out. They clearly know at least what they're doing with it, since they're already familiar with mixing drinks from the word go. Reasonable combinations usually give useful benefits: for instance, an apple plus a melon equals an Energizer, which is effectively an Invincibility Power-Up as well as full health. However, experimenting by throwing together some positively repulsive combinations gives you the dreaded Randomizer, which heals for a modest amount but also causes Chuck or Frank to puke uncontrollably for 30 seconds, as well as fumble whatever item they're holding and drop it. Sure, it might occasionally give you the effect of one of the other drinks, but anyone who jams a raw fish and an ice cream sundae into a blender deserves what they get.note In Dead Rising, the Randomizer makes Frank stumble around clutching his stomach once every few seconds for almost a few minutes.

In Indivisible, Cloud Cuckoo Lander Leliana's personal quest involves cooking seafood stew using an old family recipe that calls for some very weird ingredients: a spice that is a powerful laxative, a booze so strong that it numbs the tongue of a pirate who usually drinks Gargle Blasters like water, and a "sea cucumber" that turns out to be her nickname for a vicious reptilian monster. Much to everyone's surprise, the stew turns out to be delicious, which she explains is due to the three intense flavours all cancelling each other out. As for why nobody except her family cooks it, she says nobody else is crazy enough to even think of using such ingedients.

The Creepypasta I've Been Hiding Under My Desk for the Past Twelve Hours contains a Running Gag about salmon casserole. Smells awful, tastes awful, and it's the latest fad so it's what's for dinner. Makes a handy-dandy bait for the Monster of the Week.

Downplayed with Chef Gusteau in Ratatouille: his recipe for Sweetbread a la Gusteau proves him to be this kind of experimental chef — sweetbread cooked in a seaweed salt crust with cuttlefish tentacle, dog rose puree, geoduck egg, dried white fungus, anchovy licorice sauce, veal stomach, etc. — but he admitted it was a disaster and never actually served it (despite keeping the recipe written down).

Although it's never mentioned in the games, the manga of Kingdom Hearts depicts Aerith as one, infamous for adding things like salt to lemonade and milk to soda. Salted lemonade is actually fairly common in real life, since this both quenches thirst and restores salt loss from sweating (at Renaissance Fairs, they affectionately call it "dragon piss"), but soda with milk...

An accidental example on Friends. Because the pages of an English cookbook were stuck together Rachel ended up combining a trifle and a shepherd's pie. All her friends felt obliged to eat it anyway (except Phoebe who got out because she's a vegetarian); when out of her earshot, Ross commented, "It Tastes Like Feet!" Joey ended up liking it anyway. "Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Meat? Good."

Grandad from Only Fools and Horses, whose habit of utterly carbonizing anything he cooks leads to Del and Rodney eating out as often as possible. After Grandad dies it turns out that Del is actually a fairly competent (if rather limited) cook, but let Grandad handle the Trotters' cooking just so that he wouldn't feel useless.
Sid, he himself admits that his food is borderline inedible, and that most of his trade comes from a combination of low prices and a good location next to the Peckham market.

In Haruhi Suzumiya, Haruhi eventually explains that her mother is this. Apparently for most of her childhood, she didn't understand why food that other people made (including cheap store bought lunches) tasted so good, until she spied a cookbook and realized her mother just completely ignored the recipe and did whatever she wanted. Part of the reason she became a Supreme Chef was so that her mother wouldn't cook anymore.

In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Time Squared", Riker invites a few officers over to his quarters for hand-made omelets, having taken up cooking as a hobby to pass the time. The results are (politely) declared inedible by all present... except for Worf, who shovels it down with gusto. Riker then proceeds to blame the ingredients. It's left to the viewer to decide whether he has a point or not, although it's noted the eggs were of alien origin.
