Chef Bouche is the castle's head chef who was transformed into a stove.


Being the main chef for the castle, he delights in preparing various foods. And as such, he also gets upset when his talents go to waste, as evidenced by his complaint shortly before Belle arrived at the kitchen about how his meal had gone to waste due to Beast cancelling dinner.


Beauty and the Beast

He was disappointed that Beast canceled dinner and had to throw away what he had made, although after Belle overheard them and admitted she was a little hungry, he eagerly started preparing the fire to cook the meal on Mrs. Potts' order. When the villagers attacked the castle, he and the knives ended up scaring away the villagers that chased Sultan into the kitchen.

Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

Chef Bouche made a brief appearance in the story segment "Mrs. Potts' Party", where he is tasked by Belle to bake a cake for Mrs. Potts. However, he ran into difficulty as the cake ended up being made into a mess, although he ultimately succeeded in his task.

Marvel Comics

Chef Bouche had a few cameos in the comics, namely when preparing a meal or when Cogsworth is doing his rounds in the castle.

Disney Princess Royal Weddings

What may be his human form appeared at one point in the story, where a slightly obese man with a goatee and white hair in a chef's outfit was present early in the book making preparations for the wedding.


  • His name, Bouche, is French for "mouth, facial feature above the chin and below the nose; bottled, blocked, corked; dense, dim witted, stupid; obstruct, cork; plug, block; stuff, bung; stop, choke, stop up", several of which refer to various element of culinary techniques. In addition, "Boucher" is also French for "butcher", which is a type of cooking profession for chopping up various meats and preparing them for sale.
