    cooks spoil the broth


    There were a few guys working together and one said: You could argue that too many cooks spoil the broth. And then you can take the view that every broth needs some seasoning. It was a very productive time for us.

    What does it mean that "every broth needs some seasoning"? Does it mean that everyone has to do something?

    Re: cooks spoil the broth

    Without seasoning the dish will have no flavour - but if 20 cooks all season the broth, the probability is that it will be inedible.
