He goes so far as to insist that when food is smuggled out of his kitchen because [[Seska|someone]] wanted to make a dish their way rather then his, some type of punishment is required.  He does this even though any authority on the matter is self imposed in the first place.<ref>[[VOY]] "State of Flux"</ref>  It's understandable on a minor level that he would try to convince people that using locally available supplies is a worthwhile effort, but if something does not please the pallet of a patron (let alone your ''entire clientele''), you shouldn't force it onto them.  No, this is not the same as convincing children to eat their vegetables, as the items he insists on adding are only flavor enhancers, not items of any real nutritional value.  The impression is that if someone was allergic to something, he'd ''still'' put it in their food and make them eat it anyway.

Neelix reigns over his domain as cook on ''Voyager'' with an absolutely tyrannical grip (Chuck calls it "Coffee Martial Law").  He refuses to provide food when it doesn't suit him to do so, with no justification other than a bemused shrug.<ref>[[VOY]] "Prototype"</ref>  As seen above, he has an absolute fit when food supplies are used in any way other then his approved usage of them.<ref>[[VOY]] "State of Flux"</ref>  His complete control of the diet of his clientele even reaches the level of telling Captain Janeway herself that she can't use one of her own [[replicator]] rations to have some coffee instead of his substitute, because it would look bad to the rest of the crew for her to do so.<ref>[[VOY]] "The Cloud"</ref>  In a multitude of instances, he more-or-less demands that no one can use anything food-related without his permission, including the use of replicator rations, which are supposed to be free to use for whatever the crewman wants and can even be saved up.  It even goes to the point that when any food is seen in his kitchen that he didn't produce, he goes into an absolute tirade over it.  Of course, the only satisfying part of this behavior is that it does result in a [[Q|powerful being]] removing his mouth.<ref>[[VOY]] "Death Wish", "Q2"</ref>
