Elzar is a famous chef, owner of the restaurants Elzar's Fine Cuisine, Elzar at the Wong, and Cavern on the Green. He also hosts The Essence of Elzar, a television cooking show. He is also the reigning champion of the show Cooking Coliseum; Bender once defeated him, but declined the title of Iron Cook(3ACV22). He got his start when he was brought in to replace Helmut Spargle's less extreme show, "Down-Home Country Cooking With Helmut Spargle". Elzar practices the dark side of cooking, utilizing things like cilantro, mango salsa, raspberry vinaigrette, along with liberal use of his spice weasel.

A Neptunian, Elzar lives in Little Neptune. He is cocky, arrogant, possessing a sharp tongue and a short temper. He is an excellent chef, though he doesn't run the cleanest restaurant in town and has a reputation for being rude to the customers. Bender briefly worked for Elzar, in order to pay for the meal Elzar served them to make up for accidentally blinding Leela(2ACV13).

    Elzar: If you promise to stop interrupting, alright. Against my will, I'm gonna knock it up another notch.

    Elzar: Hey, look at this crowd. You guys gotta try the pasta. It's got a real nice profit margin. Bam!
