I think most of us crave for our mum's simply "chow". For non family member, you might feel miles away from delicious even compare to a typical canteen food. But for us, we just love the memories.
How about your wife's cooking? The food she cook is not those feeding you since you can remember. Will you feel "yark" or "yum"?
No matter how, when your one spend so much energy and heart to prepare something for your, it should be tasted as the sweetest, warmest and memorable meal in life!
