It would depend on your wife.  Do you thin she would be offended if you asked your mom to teach her how to cook?  Is it something that she wants to learn?

Assuming your wife wants to learn some culinary skills and knows that she isn't a great cook then I think it would be fine.  In fact, my experience has shown that women who know how to cook well enjoy doing it and therefore would enjoy teaching it.

The best way to go about it would be to have your mother over to your home.  That way, your wife is learning in her own kitchen.  It would be a familiar place where your wife knows where all the ingredients and appliances are and she can start to learn by helping.  While your mom is doing the cooking she can have your wife get things she needs in the kitchen and then she can learn step-by-step as the process is being done.  Learning by doing is always the best!

Of course I can. There's really nothing bad in there at all. It would even be a nice way to get your mom and your wife to bond. She will also learn other things apart from cooking like how to keep the home running smoothly.

My mother has a wealth of experience managing her home. We've grown up to respect that part of her, my dad too actually. Both my parents have raised us to be good and lovely individuals. I think she can learn that also.

Gone are the days when inability to cook was judged as a taboo for a 'would be' wife. Now, many homes are even run on food ordered from the internet. That's got to be okay based on mutual consent. I would however prefer a food cooked by my own wife. That's why learning from my mother would be the better choice.

It's perfectly okay to me TBH.

This is what I would tell thst lovely guy...

As a guy you can ask your mum to teach you how to cook in the first place. Or you can even buy a cookbook or watch some youtube how-to-cook videos. Seriously! Even a guy can do that. And guess what, there are many many men out there who actually love to cook and there are...you probably won’t believe me...even male professional cooks...some of them are even famous...like for instance the late Anthony Bourdain.

You know...if you ask that your wife should learn to cook, you should be so fair to learn it too. It won’t hurt if both partners in a relationship can tell the difference between a pot and a pan and learn how too make a decent tasty meal. I guess if you learn to cook your wife might even like you twice as much.

Maybe your mom would show the both of you what to do with a kitchen, if you ask her nicely :)

Sure if I am a guy I will be able to ask my mum to teach my wife how to cook. For my mum is one lovely and undebatable woman

Mother in-law and daughter-in-law cooking will surely helps to create a good kind of mother and daughter relationship. Also it will also be economical than the wife been enrolled in a teaching class where she will be expected to pay some fees

As a lady if I get married to a man from a different tribe or country other than man, I will definitely love to listen his people's home made dishes and learning from his mum won't just be a good idea but a perfect idea

Only if your wife acknowledges being a bad cook herself and is willing to learn from her mother-in-law. Otherwise, this idea has potential to blow up in your face. Mother's don't necessarily get along all that great with their daughters-in-law, which is why I recommend treading carefully in this matter. :)

 Why not? I brought my woman to my father and mother, who live separate and told them, learn my woman how they cook. But that was not because she cants cook, and more that she can learn the cooking skills of my parents, to give further those cooking skills to our children, and to give me the cooking skills what i used to get when i was a kid.

It's just that i don't got time to cook and im not good in cooking anyway, and there for in our family, we all have to do what any one of us can do the best. 

That saying, if my woman can cook better than me, then she better cook, and if she cooks, then she might as well learn the cooking skills of my parents right?

But if your wife can't cook, then it might be better to figure out why she cant cook, before you call in the Storm troopers!!

Yes I can. I understand some girls grew up from a wealthy family where they are not allowed to cook or work. If I happen to fall in love with one from such family and she loves me the same, I can allow my mother to teach her provided she is willing and ready to learn.

With time she do pick up. The good thing is, your mum teaching her to cook would be secretive and just within the family to avoid rumour and public hearing.
