The Cook (aka "the Chef") refers to an unnamed character in the HD Universe, appearing in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.


The Cook is, as named, a cook who worked on the Platypus, and also used this boat to get to Liberty City. While the boat was arriving in Liberty City, he is seen adding illegally imported diamonds into a cake mix.

Later, he sold these diamonds to a man named Tony Prince, who was accompanied at the deal by his bodyguard Luis Fernando Lopez and his boyfriend Evan Moss. After Tony bought the diamonds, the group was ambushed by members of The Lost Brotherhood, including Johnny Klebitz, and the Cook fled. Ray Bulgarin, who believed the diamonds were originally his, thought that the cook and Gay Tony conspired to rob Ray of the diamonds. Bulgarin decapitated the cook, leaving his head in a box on a rooftop for Luis Lopez to find when he walked into an ambush, which Lopez escaped.

  • In the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, the Cook has a full beard. However, he is clean shaven in the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
  • In an ironic twist, the box that contains The Cook's severed head is actually the same one used earlier by him to smuggle the cake full of diamonds off of the Platypus.
  • He is one of only eight characters to appear in the main game and both DLC's, the other seven being Niko and Roman Bellic, Gay Tony, Luis Fernando Lopez, Johnny Klebitz, Isaac Roth and Mori Green.
