Chef Bouche is a minor character in the Disney animated feature film, Beauty and the Beast. He is the castle's head chef who was transformed into a stove by the Enchantress' curse.

Background

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.

Appearances

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. Later, when the villagers attacked the castle, he and the knives ended up scaring away the villagers that chased Sultan into the kitchen.

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.

Beauty and the Beast (2017 film)

Chef Bouche, named Cuisinier, appeared in the 2017 live-action remake, both voiced and portrayed by Clive Rowe. In addition to being changed into a stove, he also consists of various pots, pans, and other kitchen utensils as facial features and body parts.

In a deleted scene, he also had a run-in with the Village Lasses, where he proceeded to spray prepared food at them, and then mockingly show the pot to their faces telling them that they "look amazing" and that they've "never looked better" while threatening them in a similar manner to Bouche to the other villagers in the original film.
