I always marvel at restaurant kitchens, how so many chefs can all work together without ending up strangling each other.... at home if one of us is cooking, then it's usually best for the other to leave them to it!
If it is my home and my kitchen, it takes only 1 to spoil the broth = ME!
Oh no! Broth is very easy really :)

If too many people participate in a task, they spoil everything.
It I believe was not meant for the cooking world, just a saying about people.
Say I was was to build a home, then a family member came along and wanted to change it a tad, then another and another...It would loose it's original design.In allowing too many people to have an input, it gets spoilt.
Becomes off balance, out of whack.
More than one is too many! I find it so annoying to have someone under my feet when im trying to cook.

Oh yes! So in a big restaurant kitchen, there's more room to avoid bumping.... :)
I think more than two is probably too many however this would depend on exactly where it is.

In my kitchen 2 is more than enough for me!

Two is too many and I hate anyone near me in the kitchen. I think I get this from my mother.
