Chowder is an apprentice chef for Mung Daal, and he loves food more than anything. He’ll eat anything at all. Anything. Just watch him. As well as working for head chef Mung Daal, Chowder also lives with him and his wife Truffles.

Mung Daal

Mung Daal is the chef Chowder works for and lives with. He knows almost everything about everything and is very wise - which is understandable considering that he's been cooking for more than 386 years and been married for 450!


Mung Daal's wife Truffles is the real force behind the catering company Chowder works for. She orders around her husband, the legendary chef, and makes sure he isn't getting into trouble. She’s got a heart of gold... if you can keep her happy!


Shnitzel is a big brown monster who works as a chef in Mung Daal's kitchen. He doesn't have much of a sense of humour or say a lot, but although Shnitzel acts like he doesn't like Chowder very much, he secretly has a soft spot for him.


Panini is Mrs Endive's cooking apprentice, and has a big crush on Chowder. She’s got it into her head that he is her boyfriend, but Chowder does not agree, and shouts "I'm not your boyfriend!" whenever she speaks to him.
