MEANING

Too many persons involved in managing an activity can ruin it, as in Without a conductor, every player had an idea for how the music should go—too many cooks spoil the broth. This expression alludes to each of many cooks adding something to a soup, which finally tastes awful. If too many people participate in a task, the task will not be done very well. You use this proverb to say that if too many people do the same thing (job, project,, etc.), it will not be done well. Sometimes people just say, “Too many cooks. ” Another proverb “There is safety in numbers” expresses the opposite idea.

EXAMPLE

he director never asks more than 10 people to work with him in his projects, and he wants the best 10. He always says, “Too many cooks spoil the broth.”

HISTORY
It was already considered a proverb in 1575 (by George Gascoigne in The Life of P. Care).
