Considering that this is the internet, I am pretty certain that the worst possible explanation is the correct cone. Wife making a soup (at least the usual way) is not horrible enough.

 

I agree. However, due to the nature of the puzzle, asking whether or not the wife cooked the soup can actually be helpful. We know that she is the source of the culinary mishap, but what caused the man to leave after actually tasting turtle soup for the first time at the restaurant. If she cooked the soup, then she lied to the husband about the contents of the soup. However, if she didn't cook the soup, then why is she the source of the mishap. If she didn't cook the soup, then she might actually be the 'source' for the meat in the soup ; )

 

As CharonY hinted to, my next question is whether or not the wife is the 'source' for the meat in the soup?

You are absolutely correct, in my mind I was already a few steps further.

I don't get it. Can't you come up with any number of logical explanations for why the man left after one taste?

Yes, but then it wouldnt be a puzzle. The question was asked with an intended answer, and thats what you are trying to find. Its not about logic

Well... I believe John Cuthber and I asked a few yes or no questions. Do you have a few answers?

No sir she did not cook the soup, and yes sir she was the "source" of meat in the soup

The man walked away because the soup was not made of turtle, but of his human wife. Realizing this, the man then walked away to check on her.
