“In my case, my husband used to be highly critical of prepared by me. In the years that I have known him, I have hardly seen him compliment me on my cooking even though I have learnt everything from scratch, trying new things to impress as I barely cook at my parent's place.

How to deal with husband who complains about food: Expert

Omotola Akinwale presently works as a psychologist at Mycarebuddy, a Lagos-based mental health therapy startup. Akinwale has trained dozens of individuals (on-site and offline) across Western Nigeria on different topics about mental and emotional health wellness.

This is a dicey situation; it's a two-way thing. Someone commenting on ‘the food is trash and all of that'. There is a side that ask, ‘is he telling the truth or is he using this to just spite her?

So what we would ask is, the food she is making, how good is it to the taste of the husband?

Is it something he has corrected her on? Regardless of if the food is nice or not, one shouldn't make it seem like one's spouse doesn't know what they are doing.

And what you want to consider here is sarcasm. The man makes comments about her cooking, but what exactly is she cooking? Is it what he is saying or how he is saying what he is saying that gets to her? She is saying she finds it irritating. What she can do is to have a conversation with the man. ‘What exactly about my cooking and food don't you like?' After she says that, then she can now go to ‘I don't like the unpleasant comments; you can nicely tell me that the food is undone, it is undercooked, watery, etc'. The wife should politely tell her hubby not to come for her like there is a quarrel between them.
