|The following is based on Fallout Shelter or Fallout Shelter Online and some details might contradict canon.|
The vault dwellers travel to a one-room Red Rocket to confront the Cook and two members of the Cook's gang, who all wear white officer outfits, presumably because of the resemblance to a chef's uniform in real life.
After a brief exchange of dialogue, Cook's group becomes hostile. The Cook will turn out to be a raider boss, as indicated by a skull beside the health bar. They will be armed with a flamethrower, butcher knife, and kitchen knife.

|Egads! The Dwellers found us!
Well, you may have survived my cooking...
|Bad food, bad service... I give this place one star.||That's still indicative of a quality establishment!|
|You cooked your last meal, chef.||That was boeuf bourguignon, and it was spectacular!|
|You'll pay for using rolled fondant on all your cakes!||You try making marzipan without any almonds!|
