The Cook is a minor character who appears in The Hero of the Story.


The cook owned a yam-and-noodle restaurant and once hired a thirteen-year-old Lemony Snicket to scrub pots, but the soap was slippery and caused Snicket to drop the pot on his foot. The cook then threw Snicket out of the store without letting him take his coat of its hook, which he needed to access the coins in the pocket to pay rent for the night. Snicket suspects that the cook will not even notice the coat.[1]
