When did the saying too many cooks spoil the broth originate?
The records of when and where the quote 'too many cooks spoil the
broth' have been lost to time. However looking at the origin of the
word 'broth' it seems to have been used at least since the 12th
century in England. It's possible the quote was a wise person's
musings which spread and became popular with the original creator
never being given credit.
