The stereotypical husband isn’t supposed to know his way around the kitchen. For generations, the husband was viewed as the financial supporter of the family. He brought home the bacon! The only time you could find dad in the kitchen was to eat. Fortunately, the family dynamic has changed and more men are taking on a more active role in the kitchen and household.

This makes a lot of sense considering men aren’t the “breadwinners” of the family they once were. In fact, 2 out of 3 moms are now employed outside the home.

Want to show appreciation to your loving husband who admiringly cooks for the family on social media? We’ve come up with some good captions and quotes you can use to give a shout out to your loving husband on Instagram.

I believe we can also attribute the rise of interest among at-home male cooks from famous chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Thomas Keller, Wolfgang Puck, Mario Batali, and the late Anthony Bourdain to name a few.

In today’s family, a husband who knows how to cook the basics should be a necessity, especially when both the couple are working professionals. This removes the stereotype of the wife who should be managing the house and kitchen. Other than being a stress reliever to the wife when the husband cooks for the house, it demonstrates partnership and love in the relationship too. Never a bad thing!
