Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Feeding someone, as a gesture of affection or an attempt to win it. (Or both.) The person doing the feeding may not even realize why they feel this desire to feed the other. While they do not have to cook it themselves, that adds to the significance.
Related to Feminine Women Can Cook, and often these two tropes are run together in the same plot line. If the main Love Interest is a Tomboy expect her to (often comically) struggle until some older mother figure takes pity on her and helps.
Tsundere are prone to it, because it has Plausible Deniability — and can even express unconscious emotions.
Girls giving (or sharing) a bento with a male classmate is a common way to invoke this trope. The Japanese Valentine's day chocolate also often falls under this.
Men who try this are seldom entirely comfortable with the fact that they are cooking something, but they do it anyway. (Much more pointed, that way.)
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })If the cook is spectacularly terrible, then Hilarity Ensues, particularly if she's the type to drop-kick the Love Interest when he refuses to touch her cooking because it just ate a hole through the table.
In addition to the more common romantic version, there is also the occasional mother figure to child version. In this version, an older woman (occasionally male but usually a woman) tries to demonstrate maternal love to a younger person by cooking for them. If the child is a Broken Bird, or if the older woman is a Lethal Chef this can result in failure.
The Earth Mother, Granny Classic, and Mama Bear engage in this on a regular basis for their children, but it's not limited to women. The Team Chef may do this to express the Power of Friendship for their True Companions. Indeed, any character who cooks on a regular basis probably does this as well. It acts more as a characterization trope, indicating a generalized benevolence toward a large group or even all of humanity (or more), than a particular relationship, though even here it often indicates that a person has been accepted into their True Companions.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Supertrope of Your Favorite. Compare Tastes Like Friendship and Food as Bribe. Has nothing whatsoever, aside from Rule 34, to do with Right Through His Pants. For something that goes through someone's stomach violently, see Kill It Through Its Stomach and Impaled with Extreme Prejudice. May overlap with Chocolate of Romance. Sweet Baker is a related trope in which a baker has a sweet personality to complement the sweets they regularly prepare.

Iron Druid Chronicles features a rather interesting example. Iron elementals eat magic. Fey are magical beings. Atticus befriends an iron elemental called Ferris by feeding it the Fey scouts Aenghus Og sends to find him. Then he kicks Aenghus Og's butt using, among other things, a magical talisman that he made with Ferris's help.

Discussed in Zero Time Dilemma when Akane and Carlos are locked in the pantry. When Akane mentions baking cookies as a child, Carlos asks is she made heart-shaped cookies for Junpei filled with love. She asks to stop teasing her, but doesn't deny. At another point when they're making gelatin as part of a puzzle Carlos suggests that making some for Junpei a giving it to him with words "i made it just for you" would instantly win his heart.

In one chapter of the harem comedy Ai Kora, Maeda tries to get home to enjoy a chocolate sculpture of a girl with all his "ideal parts" that he had commissioned. Unfortunately, it's Valentine's Day, and he keeps getting sidetracked by all the girls in his harem plying him with chocolate (lots of chocolate, in the case of Ayame and Kirino).

Repeatedly used for comedy in Tokyo Ghoul.
Touka's Muggle Best Friend, Yoriko, is a firm believer in this. When she brings Touka a stew as a get-well present and sees Kaneki there, she mistakenly believes him to be Touka's boyfriend. She immediately tells Touka to eat the stew with him, and departs with a thumbs-up — ignoring Touka's attempts to protest that it isn't like that.
In the light novels, a mysterious woman named Koharu repeatedly brings Amon homemade cupcakes as a present. Unfortunately, he's Oblivious to Love and she's the Ghoul he was sent to exterminate.
In the same light novel, a story centers around Misato's efforts to express her feelings to Amon by cooking him donuts. Too bad she's an oblivious Lethal Chef, and ends up giving the employees of several Branches food poisoning when she gives them her test batches. When she finally manages to give Amon the gift, he mistakes it for a character-building exercise from a superior.

A common plot in Ranma ½. Ranma really does think with his stomach a lot, and Akane is very determined to cook for him (as a Lethal Chef, Hilarity Ensues). Her rivals, Ukyo (an expert Chef) and Shampoo (works in a Ramen cafe) often use food as a way to gain an advantage over Akane in their pursuit of Ranma. In particular, the anime Christmas episode has Akane wondering why Ranma is late - and then she imagines Shampoo tempting him with a turkey, and Ranma responding "I always wanted to eat a whole turkey". It was rather amusing Character Development, because it showed that Akane now realized that Ranma would not be tempted by Shampoo's body but rather by the food.

Innocent Until Caught 2: Presumed Guilty starts with Lovable Rogue Jack T. Ladd being arrested by Cowboy Cop Ysanne Andropath. She refuses to feed him until she drops him in jail, he reminds her that "the path to a man's heart is through his stomach", but she replies that she prefers more direct ways. Like disembowelment with a blaster ray.

Gilmore Girls:
Sookie is a great chef and she's seen preparing food for her boyfriend (later husband) Jackson or her best friend Lorelai (who can't cook to save her life).
Lorelai and her daughter Rory often eat at Luke's diner. He's their close friend and their dinners, lunches or dinners there look like friends or family eating together. They often show their appreciation and say multiple times that Luke is the one who feeds them and that they owe him for their survival. Later, Lorelai and Luke get together romantically.
Lane's boyfriend Zach who was for a long time her friend, band-mate and room-mate prepares romantic dinner for her when he plans sleeping with her for the first time. Lane was completely oblivious and then shocked when she got it.

In Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, three of the girls compete this way. Each of the girls has a different cooking ethnicity, and Kazuki ends up having to eat every morsel on every plate just to maintain the peace. A fourth girl, D, doesn't know how to cook, so she just adds instant curry sauce to all 3 meals in an attempt to compete. The irony is that Kazuki prefers bachelor food, like instant ramen.

Taiga from Toradora! is at her most content when she eats good food. Her classmate and neighbor Ryuuji is an excellent cook. Do the math.
This example reverses the gender roles in the trope, because the male (Ryuuji) is good at cooking and housekeeping, while the female (Taiga) is hopeless at both. Though Character Development has her improve somewhat by the end, moving her from "utterly hopeless" to "moderately good" at caring for herself.

In the 1937 Merrie Melodies short "I Only Have Eyes for You", a lonely spinster tries to woo an iceman with her culinary talents. It initially fails since he only has eyes for another girl who is only interested in crooners. The iceman hires a voice imitator and hides him in the back of his ice-truck so he can pretend to be a crooner. The scheme ultimately fails but everything still works out for the best: the girl falls in love with the voice imitator, the iceman is won over by the spinster's cooking.

In D.Gray-Man, apparently this is the way to Allen's heart. It's entirely possible to bribe him into having positive, happy feelings towards the person. In one instance, Miranda, unable to think of any way to cheer him up, gives him her candy, which makes him ridiculously happy. In another instance, Rohfa apparently caught on to the idea, and is implied to be trying to court him by bribing him with huge boxes of Mitarashi Dango (his favorite). Granted, he only seemed to happily notice the food, without the romantic implications... but, well, it's a start, right?

Used throughout the Fire Emblem series:
A non-romantic version occurs in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade with Child Mage 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 Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Ilyana is noted in base conversations (as well as her supports with Zihark, Gatrie and Mia's Foot) to deprive soldiers of their food with her cuteness (and then forget their names).
In Fire Emblem Awakening, this seems to be a sort-of theme for several characters:
In Sumia and Chrom's supports, she bakes him a series of savory pies (a bento in the Japanese version) in hopes of both winning his heart and help him outside the battlefield. If she's married, her "gift" reply to her husband on an event tile is her showing him that she has made lunch for him... even if she dropped it twice — this event shows up regardless of who said husband is note (Chrom, boy!Avatar, Frederick, Gaius or Henry), so it shows that she cooks for all of her love interests.
Kellam can have two girls cooking for him... not bad or a guy who's often forgotten. On one hand, Lissa bakes him a "rainbow-filled" pie but it doesn't go that well. On the other, Olivia makes rock candy for him with some honey that he brought her before and it works much better.
Gaius invokes the trope several times too. He tries to win the aforementioned Olivia's heart with pies and proposes to her via hiding a ring inside a tart he baked for her, helps Lissa improve her cooking, and a good part of his supports with Sumia include their Epic Fail at finding honey for pies. (She manages to bake him a cake in the end.) In his own "gift" dialogue with a girlfriend has him saying he's baked a treat for her.
Stahl wins Panne's trust and affection over by trying to come up with meals she can enjoy with the others. This one's quite justified: being a Taguel instead of a human (meaning she has the dietary needs of a rabbit, the animal that the Taguel are based from), there are several things that Panne simply cannot eat, lest she'll get sick or even die.
As a Ninja Maid, Cherche is said to be a pretty good cook too. Her ending with Stahl has him actually gaining weight from eating all of her delicious food.
Mixed gender example: the Avatar (whether male or female) makes a carrot stew for the aforementioned Panne. S/he is a Lethal Chef. Panne loves it anyway.
The male Avatar starts cooking for Nah in their A Support after seeing that her diet consists of little more than berries, leaves, and roots. She greatly appreciates the gesture because in the Bad Future, where Nah was raised by scornful foster parents, food was scarce, which was especially a problem for a half-dragon like Nah, as manaketes require far more food than humans to survive.
Tharja, in her attempts to get closer to the Avatar (regardless of gender), tries her hand at "acting normal" and cooks their favorite meal: liver-and-eel pie. The Avatar is taken aback by Tharja's drastic change in personality (even saying that they preferred her old habits), but they DO find the pie in itself to be delicious.
Tharja's daughter Noire is an excellent baker. Her supports with Owain show her baking for him, and if she supports with a Male Avatar who's not her dad he agrees to go out in a date with her to taste her cakes.
The "gift" reply from event tiles involving Cordelia's daughter Severa have her giving her lover something she baked for him. Being a tsundere, she immediately tells him "don't you DARE complain about the taste!"
Sully and Cynthia mention in some of their supports that the village girls often give them savory pies with cream (Sully) and sweet cakes (Cynthia) to show their admiration for them.
In Lon'qu and Cordelia's supports, it's revealed that Cordelia often cooks dinner for the army with this trope in mind.
Fire Emblem Fates also has this trope as a sort-of theme for some characters:
Peri is said to be "the best cook of the army", and she cooks for her partner Laslow in their S support as thanks for helping her deal with her mother's death. She also shares her homemade sweets with Kaze and he notes how good of a cook she is.
Charlotte, as a mix of The Fake Cutie and Gold Digger, uses her cooking skills as one of her "tactics" to attract men. It backfires hilariously in her Invisible Kingdom B and A supports with Saizo: he trolls her several times via Stealth Hi Byes, and in one of them he drinks the soup she was preparing before Charlotte can even blink, which pisses the HELL out of her. (He does aknowledge the good taste, however.)
Hana and the aforementioned Saizo's support chain begins when a very hungry Hana asks him to give her some food. He hands her one of the basic food rations that the Hoshidan ninjas carry when in missions; she loves it so much that, in the B support, she asks him for the recipe so she can make it later. If they reach a S support and Saizo proposes to Hana, they explicitly say that this food deal helped them grow closer.
More than one support chain including Mozu is about this trope, since she's the closest to a Team Chef in the troops. Again, Saizo is among the prospect 'candidates', and his Mozu supports shed quite the light about his past as the two bond over food.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses plays with this in two ways: You can raise your Support Points with other characters by eating meals with them in the mess hall, with greater gains earned if you choose one of their favorite foods. You can also have other characters help out in the kitchen once a month to cook a meal to provide your army with a temporary stat boost. Selecting someone who's good at cooking (such as Mercedes, Dedue, or Ashe) will also increase their Support Points significantly, while choosing a Lethal Chef (or someone who hates to cook, like Hanneman) won't give you any additional benefit.

The Dukes of Hazzard: Twisted into knots in "Cool Hands, Luke and Bo." There's no benevolent (and definitely no loving) affection between Col. Cassius Claybourne and his longtime rival, Boss Hogg, only Claybourne's desire to gain revenge on his longtime enemy and wipe him out financially and in many other ways ... by exploiting his appetite. Before it's done, Boss has eaten chicken, mashed potatoes, blueberry pie, chocolate cake and other high-calorie dishes, and Claybourne has gotten the mortgages to the Boar's Nest, Hazzard Bank, Cooter's Garage, the Boar's Nest, Hogg's used car lot and every other property in Hazzard County.

In the musical Of Thee I Sing, the principal qualification of Mary Turner for her successful bid to become the wife of John P. Wintergreen and First Lady of the United States is her ability to "bake the best darned corn muffins you ever ate." Now, Wintergreen may have made a campaign promise to marry the winner of an Atlantic City beauty contest, but the winner's chances of making him honor his promise are doomed when he finds out she can't make corn muffins.

Granted, she is a professional cook and he helped her to find who had nearly destroyed her beloved restaurant, but her facial expression and body language leave no doubt about her intentions.

The Princess and the Frog:
James explicitly talks about the good feelings that good cooking brings.
Tiana reminds Charlotte of this, and Charlotte commissions food from her for the purpose.
Later on, when Naveen wants to propose to Tiana, he prepares her some minced vegetables. Nothing but big piles of minced vegetables. In this case it's really a symbolic gesture, as he worked hard for a change (and mincing is the only culinary skill Tiana had taught him).

Lola and Kyle's first meeting in The Young and the Restless is a variation on this. Kyle is at Lola's food truck, and keeps adding special requests to his order, prompting her to snap that if she does it his way, it'll wreck the meal. After arguing over it for a bit, Lola offers him a deal: he tries the sandwich her way, and if he doesn't like it, she'll make it his way for free. Kyle agrees, so Lola fixes the sandwich for him — and after two bites, Kyle concedes defeat. She then tells him to scram, since she has other customers, but he's clearly already got a crush on her, and the two start dating shortly thereafter.

Cooking for your crush (or eating the food from your crush) is a frequent focus in School Rumble.
Hanai challenges Harima to a cooking duel during a nature outing to impress a Tsukamoto girl. What Hanai is unaware of is that both he and Harima are each focused on a different sister: Harima wants to impress older sister Tenma, Hanai wants to impress younger sister Yakumo. Naturally, Hilarity Ensues.
Tenma wants to make food for her crush Karasuma and decides on curry which is his favourite food. Since she's a Lethal Chef, she has to get Yakumo to help make it. They make two bento boxes containing curry and two containing rice so that each sister can bring the lunches to school to share (Tenma with Karasuma, Yakumo with her friend Sarah). Unfortunately the plan goes downhill when the bentos get mixed up and Tenma ends up with both boxes of rice while Yakumo is stuck with the two boxes of curry. Fortunately for Tenma, Karasuma is content with turning the rice into onigiri and sharing them with her.
The girls of 2C making onigiri to share with the class while they're preparing for the school festival. Harima, who is perfectly aware that his crush Tenma is a Lethal Chef, attempts to eat her ongiri by finding the ones that taste the most disgusting. He thinks he's succeeded... only to then find out he ate the onigiri made by Eri (another Lethal Chef crushing on him) instead, much to her delight. Tenma then gives Harima the ongiri she actually made — to his horror, they're even worse than Eri's.

Early in the manga Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Yuuko is shown feeding Teiichi from a bento. On the next page, she pulls him down onto her Lap Pillow. He's a bit weirded out by this, because Yuuko, although very good-looking and built, has been dead for something like fifty years. (She doesn't quite fit the Cute Ghost Girl terms, though, as everyone else in the school either can't see her at all or sees her as a Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl.)

In Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Ryoko attempts to do this to win over Tenchi in episode 7. However, as she has no tastebuds to taste her meal and she's not willing to get Sasami, their resident cook, into the mix,note and doesn't trust her mother Washu enough to ask her to restore her sense of taste the results are disastrous. She ends up giving up, though.

One of the proposed ways of sabotaging Osana's attempts at winning Senpai's affections (not programmed into the game yet, but planned) in Yandere Simulator involves this trope. Osana's made an extra lunch for Senpai to have with her to invoke this trope. Yandere-chan can, if she so chooses, poison Senpai's meal with an emetic to make him sick and less likely to accept her love confession. Or she could poison Osana's meal in an attempt to get her alone and kill her quietly. Of course, she could just straight up poison Osana's meal with a lethal poison, but having Senpai witness his childhood friend die in front of him may have...unintended consequences.

Comes up in the young adult novel The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong. When Derek first sees Chloe again, he offers her food and asks about her injury. His romantic rival for Chloe's affections even comments that Derek is "showing him up". Later, Derek acts a bit of a mother hen over Chloe, making her a bed of tarps, offering her his sweatshirt, and giving her his last granola bar. So it came as no surprise when a new character instantly observed that Derek considered Chloe his mate.

In Freefall, Helix observes that canines -- like Florence -- only need to be fed to be loyal.
Sam notes that eating together is obviously a deep need for Florence.
Somewhat justified; as Florence repeatedly points out in the early strips, canines apply social rank based on who eats first. This, she points out, can lead to some interesting differences from human rank structures...

Attempted by Ringo Oginome in episode 3 of Mawaru-Penguindrum. She reads in a magazine that a curry plate made in specific circumstances will help her gain her crush Tabuki's attention, and thus she tries making curry for him. Too bad that Tabuki's actual girlfriend, Yuri, beat her to the punch.
In episode 11, Shouma Takakura is seen cooking stuffed cabbage and his sister Himari notices it's a dish he only cooks when he intends to ask someone for forgiveness. She then speculates that he's had a fight with Ringo and says "I hope Ringo-chan likes cabbage!". In a subversion, Ringo don't get to taste it;she knocks the dish down because, when Shouma and Himari found her, the kid was in the middle of a huge Heroic BSoD.
Invoked again in episode 17, since Shouma and Kanba's takoyaki is so good that not even the Princess of the Crystal can resist their taste.

Parodied in Aho Girl, where it's revealed in flashbacks that protagonist Yoshiko's crush on her childhood "friend" Akuru was initiated by an unintentional case of this; Yoshiko had just broken into Akuru's room while he was studying, and, feeling hungry, was begging him for food. Akuru, who just wanted to study in peace, fed her a banana so she would leave him alone already. Unfortunately for him, she turned out to find the banana absolutely delicious, and became convinced he was using this trope on her. She has been madly in love with him ever since- much to his chagrin.

Hikari offers to make Touji a bento in Neon Genesis Evangelion. She says it's because she "makes food for her sisters so she always has leftovers" but it guaranteed that the fandom thought them an item from that point on.
Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 has a surprisingly detailed and extended focus on cooking. Shinji is a good cook, and proves it during a field trip. Rei, hoping to reunite Shinji and Gendo, invites both of them to a dinner party where she will cook. Seeing Rei practice cooking makes Asuka jealous, and she, too, takes up the ladle and attempts to learn (though she is incredibly embarrassed when this is found out). A later scene proves that Rei is a far more dedicated learner than Asuka, as proven by the bandage count on their fingers.

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."

Nodame's crush on Chiaki in Nodame Cantabile could perhaps be largely attributed to Chiaki's outstanding cooking skills, which save her from eating instant ramen for dinner every day.

In the portable version of Persona 3, a female main character can opt to cook Ken Amada's favorite dish for him. However, the context in which this scene takes place is entirely up to the player. Interestingly, you level up the rank before you get to the discussion on why she made the meal.
More generally, during Fuuka's Social Link the female protagonist can also make a number of sweets which can be given as gifts during weekend dates; these always go over famously.

In Persona 4, the main character can occasionally cook for his friends. If the food is good, this will cause an increase in Relationship Values.
Yukiko and Rise both attempt to invoke this throughout the game. They are outright Lethal Chefs however. Though Rise wouldn't be that bad if she laid off the spices.

In 3-gatsu no Lion, Hina's attempts to get closer to Takahashi involve winning him over with meals that she cooked. Her first attempt ends in failure due to her shyness hindering her ability to give it after his game...which is probably for the best. The second attempt, with the advice from Akari, is a curry rice meal topped with kaarage and onsen egg. She fares much better.

Probably the main reason for the continuing marriage of Frank and Marie from Everybody Loves Raymond.
The lemon chicken that won Ray's heart - only for him to discover later that this is practically the only thing Debra can cook well - is in all probability a reference to "Engagement Chicken" as described below in Real Life.

A non-romantic version occurs in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade with Child Mage 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.

Fire Emblem Fates also has this trope as a sort-of theme for some characters:
Peri is said to be "the best cook of the army", and she cooks for her partner Laslow in their S support as thanks for helping her deal with her mother's death. She also shares her homemade sweets with Kaze and he notes how good of a cook she is.
Charlotte, as a mix of The Fake Cutie and Gold Digger, uses her cooking skills as one of her "tactics" to attract men. It backfires hilariously in her Invisible Kingdom B and A supports with Saizo: he trolls her several times via Stealth Hi Byes, and in one of them he drinks the soup she was preparing before Charlotte can even blink, which pisses the HELL out of her. (He does aknowledge the good taste, however.)
Hana and the aforementioned Saizo's support chain begins when a very hungry Hana asks him to give her some food. He hands her one of the basic food rations that the Hoshidan ninjas carry when in missions; she loves it so much that, in the B support, she asks him for the recipe so she can make it later. If they reach a S support and Saizo proposes to Hana, they explicitly say that this food deal helped them grow closer.
More than one support chain including Mozu is about this trope, since she's the closest to a Team Chef in the troops. Again, Saizo is among the prospect 'candidates', and his Mozu supports shed quite the light about his past as the two bond over food.

Parodied in Fushigi Yuugi. Tamahome is forced by circumstances to break up with Miaka. She, of course, is hurt and confused, and when it's time to prepare lunch, Miaka volunteers to help out. She ends up cooking with Xi Fang, the foster daughter of the Byakko Warriors Tokaki and Subaru, whom circumstances lead Miaka to be jealous of. Miaka gets distracted and burns all that she cooks, while Xi Fang's cooking is perfect, and Hilarity Ensues when everyone takes the first bite and is instantly put off. Bonus points when Tamahome makes a spiteful comment about her cooking, and EXTRA bonus points when, after Miaka leaves upset, he eats everything she cooked at the cost of getting a nasty stomachache.

In Star Trek: Deep Space Nine:
The first episode of the 4th season "The Way of the Warrior" begins with Captain Sisko welcoming his girlfriend Kasidy Yates back to the station with a gift and an extensive romantic dinner that is, unfortunately, interrupted very quickly.
When Kasidy and Ben are married, Sisko is shown throughout to, unusually for Star Trek, prefer cooking real food rather than eating out of a replicator, largely because his father is a chef. Kasidy tries to cook for him and burns the peppers he'd been growing for months, then agrees that she's best off leaving the cooking to him.

Xxx Holic: Because Watanuki's such a Tsundere that he can't bring himself to properly give a verbal "thank-you", whenever he wants to "pay back" any favors Doumeki gives him (such as saving his life numerous times), he'll usually cook Doumeki's favorite foods or take requests to cook something Doumeki wants (most often with Doumeki making some ridiculous request that's impossible). Okay, so despite the fact he's Mr. Stoic, it's pretty obvious Doumeki already really really likes Watanuki, but the cooking definitely seems to make him want to stick around Watanuki even more. In fact, a lot of shipping fodder moments between them occur with them bantering and arguing about Watanuki's cooking.

Magick Chicks had this twice: Faith made some food twice for Tiffany, who saved her from an enraged vampire — which was Faith's own fault — by giving her own blood, and got drained too much — which also was entirely Faith's fault — both to fix blood loss and to seduce her. But she is a terrible cook. (To be fair, liver and spinach are common Stock Yucks, which may be more of a factor than her cooking skill.) Jacqui later made some waffles for her fallback boyfriend (and Faith's brother) Paul.

Full Metal Panic!. As Kaname is a Tsundere she naturally fulfills this trope. She's shown to have prepared a special meal for Sousuke on several occasions, either as reconciliation after losing her temper, or as Ship Tease promptly followed by Sousuke doing something to make Kaname lose her temper.

The Transporter. After reluctantly rescuing Lai, Frank unties her, leaves her a microwave meal of noodles, then goes to sleep, making it clear she's free to leave. He's surprised when she's still there to cook breakfast for him the next day, and later accuses of her deliberately invoking this trope to get him on her side. In the second film, Inspector Tarconi befriends an entire police precinct by showing off his cooking skill.

In the last volume of The King of Fighters: KYO manga, Athena wants Kyo, Yuki and Kensou to join her in her School Festival performance. She invokes the trope via making a good Chinese mushroom recipe and inviting them over for dinner, then telling them her plans when they're at the table — and it works. Too bad the Festival is crashed by Goenitz.

Murdoch Mysteries
Mrs Brackenreid is acknowledged as a very good cook. She's sometimes seen cooking and bringing food for her husband, trying to appease him or indulge him. In "Kung Fu Crabtree", she cooks Chinese dinner for her family. Inspector stays at work because he prefers English food (beef or pudding) but she brings him his dinner in a basket to the office. He happens to love it and some of the spices happened to be aphrodisiac... In one episode, she cooks a special feast with all her husband's favourites for their anniversary.
Enid Jones, a young widow courted by Detective Murdoch, bakes cake for Detective Murdoch as a thank you gift for helping to find her son, and she later brings him some food when he's sick and she even spoonfeeds him.

Pointedly played with in NCIS, where Ziva cooks for everyone except Tony. He is stunned that she's holding dinner parties for absolutely everyone else they work with, including the "autopsy gremlin!" Eventually, she promises to cook for him, but we never see any of the scenes. For more information, see "Boxed In" from Season 3; Ziva's decision to cook for Tony is a result of them spending the episode Locked in a Room.

The Al Brodax Popeye cartoon "Duel to the Finish", which in spite of its title is devoid of inherent violence, has Olive trying to make Popeye jealous by wooing Wimpy. And what obvious way to woo Wimpy than through his stomach. Popeye laughs off Wimpy's flattering of Olive (using culinary metaphors) until he hears Olive kiss Wimpy. Popeye challenges him to a duel, and Wimpy chooses an eating duel. After so many hamburgers, Popeye concedes, unable to eat any more, but then Wimpy concedes Olive to him after he hears her say she can't cook another thing.

A hilarious version in The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer: Sami makes a meal, that turns somewhat lethal. She doesn't finish eating it, and tells Yuuhi that he doesn't have to either, but the man gobbles it up like nectar from the gods (and pays for it later).
During the finale, it's found that Yayoi cooks (large) lunches for her husband, even hand delivering them.

In Shakugan no Shana, Shana and Kazumi begin competing over Yuji by each bringing him lunch. Kazumi can cook, while Shana... let's just say Yuji's mother was overwhelmed trying to teach her. So Shana just gives Yuji a box of Melon Bread in a curious inversion of Your Favorite.
Inspired by the cooking war going on over Yuji, Whilhelmina tries to do this for Shana. It doesn't turn out well- apparently Ninja Maid can't cook. So much for "Specialist of Everything".

Done in One Piece at the end of the Alabasta saga. So what does a now world famous pirate want for saving an entire country and defeating one of the most dangerous people in world? Luffy only wants to be fed until he explodes. Vivi and Terracota manage to succeed which is a miracle in itself.
In a gender inversion, amorous chef Sanji prepares special food and beverages for whatever beautiful women he can find, shrugging off even his captain until the needs of the women are met. He clearly implies that he does this to win their affections. But at the same time, Sanji will never refuse anyone a meal if they're starving, even if that person could be a potential threat to him such as Gin.

Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!:
Mayucchi usually makes, or offers to make food on the days when the dorm mother is off. In her route, she does this all the time for Yamato.
Miyako also attempts this on a regular basis, but unfortunately for her, her usual choice of fare is not exactly popular with Yamato.
Episode 5 of the anime also features everyone, including the guys and Cookie, catching on to Mayuuchi's idea, and showers him with whatever food they happen to carry. For added hilarity, Momoyo mentions that she's eaten half her yakisoba-pan (bread filled with noodles), which would mean an indirect kiss. This causes the rest of the girls to take bites out of what they gave him.

Rebuild of Evangelion 2.0 has a surprisingly detailed and extended focus on cooking. Shinji is a good cook, and proves it during a field trip. Rei, hoping to reunite Shinji and Gendo, invites both of them to a dinner party where she will cook. Seeing Rei practice cooking makes Asuka jealous, and she, too, takes up the ladle and attempts to learn (though she is incredibly embarrassed when this is found out). A later scene proves that Rei is a far more dedicated learner than Asuka, as proven by the bandage count on their fingers.

Nicely done in Saiunkoku Monogatari, in which Shuurei's cooking wins Ryuuki's heart twice over. In the backstory of the series, Shouka shared the food Shuurei cooked for him with Ryuuki whenever Ryuuki visited the Archives, effectively becoming Ryuuki's Parental Substitute since he was neglected and abused by the rest of his family. Later, when Ryuuki and Shuurei first meet in person, she shares her tea and sweet bean buns with him; he recognizes her cooking, and falls in love with her in very short order.

An inordinate amount of time in Fate/stay night seems to be spent on cooking. Shirou, Rin and Sakura can cook (different styles, but they can all cook). Taiga can't. Saber mainly just eats.
Sakura is the one actually trying for this trope with Shirou. It's somewhat ironic, considering that he's the one who taught her how to cook. Still, she eagerly learns as much as she can, from him and on her own, and he proudly acknowledges that she's managed to surpass him.
Kohaku uses this method to get closer to Saber in Battle Moon Wars after Shiro warns her not to over do it because Saber will never forget a meal. She does the exact opposite.

While rare, Brock of Pokémon sometimes employs this tactic when attempting to woo the Girl of the Week.
In her first night as a member of the twerps, Serena in the XY saga baked some cookies for the gang, but gave them to Ash first. This being Ash, he completely overlooks Serena's intention of impressing him.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has a platonic (or not quite) example when Applejack butters up Twilight by offering her a huge selection of treats in exchange for the second ticket to the Grand Galloping Gala. It doesn't work.

In Nip and Tuck, visiting ex-military man Corporal Bo wonders why all the local ladies keep bringing him food. Nip uses the Trope Naming expression word for word. Somewhat inverted; while Corporal Bo goes on to marry, his bride isn't one of the local girls who fed him.
A few strips later, Nip and Tuck's mother gives Bo the parental version as well; chicken and biscuits, all homemade.

In Maburaho Yuna constantly cooks for Kazuki and brings him obento, because "that's whata wife is supposed to do". This is also played with in two episodes, one being where Rin wants to try to cook an obento for a teacher she had a crush on, however as she isn't as feminine as the rest of the female cast, her cooking tastes horrible. In the end, she doesn't give the obento to the teacher, but instead gives it to Kazuki who eats it all, despite its horrible taste. In another episode, when Kazuki's parents are supposed to come over to visit, upon learning eel is their favourite meal, all three girls attempt to prepare eel to impress his parents.

In I Wish, this trope gets coupled with Love Epiphany. K tells Wye that the master never taught him anything about love, until he recalls a time he ran away from his home. The master found him and asked if K wasn't hungry, which moved K to tears. This leads to him asking Lyu-Jin if she's hungry, pointing to a table full of food that he has cooked — and Lyu-Jin is moved to tears, realizing that he loved her, and she was in love with him.

In The Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss really loves to eat, and she's particularly fond of Peeta's cheese buns, which he brings her all the time in Catching Fire (despite the fact that things are still pretty awkward between them, and she's now rich enough to just buy bread). This trope is almost subverted to begin with, though: when they were younger, Peeta caught a beating from his mother to provide Katniss with two loaves of bread that saved her and her mother and sister from starvation... and she so loathed the debt she felt towards him that she avoided him until the games forced them together. It's played straight as a manifestation of his character, though.
In the movie, Peeta felt immense guilt over tossing her the bread (as opposed to taking it to her) way back when Katniss and her family were starving, because he later felt like he was treating her like a starving dog (Katniss herself couldn't care less about that and is rather oblivious to his feelings regarding the matter.)

In Little Busters!, this comes up a few times: Haruka cooks for Riki multiple times in her route, partially to earn his affection and is really distressed when she realises that he's been unknowingly eating Kanata's food as well, and even preferred hers. Kurugaya also offers to make bento for Riki, though after they've started going out. Masato turns it around - his idea for how a guy should confess to a girl is to just go up to her and declare 'from tomorrow, you're going to be making me bento every day!' All of his demonstrations of this line fail, however.

Unsolved Mysteries: 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, where they had the soup they shared long ago.

Ensemble Stars! has quite a few (generally) platonic examples:
Souma is a very skilled cook who often prepares food for his friends - his management conversation with Keito features him talking about how happy it makes him to know that he can please other people with his cooking. In particular, Kanata often asks him to cook fish for him, which works out very well given that Souma is always looking for things he can do to help him out. And in Greek Legends he offers to make bento boxes for his friend Adonis given that the latter often only eats anpan for lunch.
Kuro also often cooks, particularly for his beloved younger sister and his karate club junior Tetora. On the other hand, Tetora would like to cook for Kuro, but he's a Lethal Chef so he has a lot of practising to do before he can.
Ritsu likes to bake, but while his creations are inevitably delicious, they always look awful, so people are usually very reluctant at first to try anything he makes.
Hajime, on top of knowing a great deal about making tea, also bakes, particularly for his Tea Club seniors to eat during together club meetings; they are always very happy to enjoy the efforts of their cute and hard-working junior.

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun: Kashima attempts to appeal to her beloved senpai Hori by secretly making a cake for him (he doesn't like being given homemade food so she pretends she bought it). The approach she uses for this plan is hilariously unromantic (for example her asking a coworker to keep it a secret makes it sound like she's whipping up drugs). She makes brandy cake, and Hori ends up eating most of it. The problem? Hori turns out to have really bad alcohol tolerance and so ends up drunk.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses plays with this in two ways: You can raise your Support Points with other characters by eating meals with them in the mess hall, with greater gains earned if you choose one of their favorite foods. You can also have other characters help out in the kitchen once a month to cook a meal to provide your army with a temporary stat boost. Selecting someone who's good at cooking (such as Mercedes, Dedue, or Ashe) will also increase their Support Points significantly, while choosing a Lethal Chef (or someone who hates to cook, like Hanneman) won't give you any additional benefit.

In Fire Emblem Awakening, this seems to be a sort-of theme for several characters:
In Sumia and Chrom's supports, she bakes him a series of savory pies (a bento in the Japanese version) in hopes of both winning his heart and help him outside the battlefield. If she's married, her "gift" reply to her husband on an event tile is her showing him that she has made lunch for him... even if she dropped it twice — this event shows up regardless of who said husband is note (Chrom, boy!Avatar, Frederick, Gaius or Henry), so it shows that she cooks for all of her love interests.
Kellam can have two girls cooking for him... not bad or a guy who's often forgotten. On one hand, Lissa bakes him a "rainbow-filled" pie but it doesn't go that well. On the other, Olivia makes rock candy for him with some honey that he brought her before and it works much better.
Gaius invokes the trope several times too. He tries to win the aforementioned Olivia's heart with pies and proposes to her via hiding a ring inside a tart he baked for her, helps Lissa improve her cooking, and a good part of his supports with Sumia include their Epic Fail at finding honey for pies. (She manages to bake him a cake in the end.) In his own "gift" dialogue with a girlfriend has him saying he's baked a treat for her.
Stahl wins Panne's trust and affection over by trying to come up with meals she can enjoy with the others. This one's quite justified: being a Taguel instead of a human (meaning she has the dietary needs of a rabbit, the animal that the Taguel are based from), there are several things that Panne simply cannot eat, lest she'll get sick or even die.
As a Ninja Maid, Cherche is said to be a pretty good cook too. Her ending with Stahl has him actually gaining weight from eating all of her delicious food.
Mixed gender example: the Avatar (whether male or female) makes a carrot stew for the aforementioned Panne. S/he is a Lethal Chef. Panne loves it anyway.
The male Avatar starts cooking for Nah in their A Support after seeing that her diet consists of little more than berries, leaves, and roots. She greatly appreciates the gesture because in the Bad Future, where Nah was raised by scornful foster parents, food was scarce, which was especially a problem for a half-dragon like Nah, as manaketes require far more food than humans to survive.
Tharja, in her attempts to get closer to the Avatar (regardless of gender), tries her hand at "acting normal" and cooks their favorite meal: liver-and-eel pie. The Avatar is taken aback by Tharja's drastic change in personality (even saying that they preferred her old habits), but they DO find the pie in itself to be delicious.
Tharja's daughter Noire is an excellent baker. Her supports with Owain show her baking for him, and if she supports with a Male Avatar who's not her dad he agrees to go out in a date with her to taste her cakes.
The "gift" reply from event tiles involving Cordelia's daughter Severa have her giving her lover something she baked for him. Being a tsundere, she immediately tells him "don't you DARE complain about the taste!"
Sully and Cynthia mention in some of their supports that the village girls often give them savory pies with cream (Sully) and sweet cakes (Cynthia) to show their admiration for them.
In Lon'qu and Cordelia's supports, it's revealed that Cordelia often cooks dinner for the army with this trope in mind.

Parodied in the Captain Tsubasa original anime. Sanae is trying to gather her courage to ask Tsubasa out and decides to bring him sandwiches... but while he does like her food, he totally misses her advances. Being a tsundere, she finally gets fed up and goes away, with Tsubasa being all "... WTF?!"
Played straight in the re-introduction of the Furano team. The two managers, Yoshiko and Machiko, bring home-made drinks for the guys; Machiko immediately tells Yoshiko to go to the team captain, Matsuyama, and give him his drink first while she handles the rest, clearly thinking of the present trope since Yoshiko and Matsuyama are Twice Shy.

Saiyuki: several examples
Goku in general takes an instant liking to people who give him food, and for that matter, an instant dislike to those who take food away.
Hakkai is the team cook, being the only one who can actually make anything edible this might be more a common sense arrangement. There's a flashback episode revolving around snow and the four of them eating sukiyaki together
There's a filler episode in reload about a Lethal Chef (literally) trying to cook for her fiance.

Hilariously played with in Martian Successor Nadesico. The girls who are after Akito (already a decent cook in his own right, and the reason he joined the crew in the first place) try to compete for his affections through a Cooking Duel... and they're all really bad at it.

In The Secret Agreement, the first time Iori meets Yuuichi he is eating mitarashi dango, and Iori asks to try. He nearly eats the entire thing, over which Yuuichi feels resentful at the time. Later in life he views it more optimistically as "it only took three-quarters of a mitarashi dango to make you mine."

A recurring theme throughout SHUFFLE! is that all of Rin's potential girlfriends try to win him over by cooking. Despite this, it is a coincidence that the best cook ends up winning him over. In the anime, when he stops eating Kaede's food, it is a sign that he is neglecting her. And we know where that brings us.

Friends:
It's pretty clear through the course of the show that cooking is the way Monica shows her love for all her friends, making it a platonic version of the trope. She absolutely loves being "the perfect hostess". One of the flashbacks in the series reveals that an infatuated Monica was convinced to become a chef after she made some macaroni and cheese for Chandler and he told her that she should become one.
Phoebe once imagines a possible future where Monica is married to a very visibly overweight Joey instead of Chandler. She cooks for him and feeds him with delight.
