- To date, Cheiron's Academy has had at least three cooks: Buterus and two unknown.
- In 1.05 - Girl Trouble, Hercules tells Jason and Iolaus that Cheiron promised them a new cook. When Lilith appears, the boys assume that she's there to fill the position, and are surprised to find out that she's just another cadet. After accidentally incapacitating a messenger, they are sent by Cheiron to Athens to hire a new cook.
- In 1.34 - Get Jason, the current cook gets food poisoning (probably poisoned by Buterus) and Buterus poses as the cook's cousin from Thebes to assume the role of Academy Cook so that he can get close enough to assassinate Jason.
- Not much is known about the other two cooks, except that their cooking is not terribly good (the food is complained about often - see Food Reviews).
