Storyline

Marge takes Bart and Lisa on a weekend excursion, but when an unexpected restaurant detour awakens their taste buds, fellow foodies Amuse Bruce and Fois Garth inspire them to start their own food blog, "The Three Mouthketeers." They score an exclusive reservation at Springfield's premiere modern restaurant, but Marge has an unsettling dream during which Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, and Mario Batali lead her to reconsider extending the invite to Homer. Later, Marge directs Homer to a different type of cooking lab where he gets into a bind with law enforcement authorities. Written by Fox Publicity

Clever episode that makes good use of its guest stars,
9 July 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Food Wife is a great Simpsons episode with a smart and funny storyline.I really enjoyed the guest appearances from real life foodies in the episode,including Anthony Bourdain,Gordon Ramsay,Marlo Batali,Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.I especially enjoyed Gordon Ramsays appearance,where he appears in Marges dream that turns out to be his own dream.

Marge is jealous of Homer because of Bart and Lisa always considering him the fun parent.When Marge trys to have a fun day with them,it doesn't go so well,but afterwords they go to an Indian restaurant and end up enjoying it and the three decide to start a food blog together,making Homer feel left out.
