"Get Back In The Kitchen", otherwise known as "Get Back To The Kitchen", is a phrase often used in jest, typically as a hyperbolic response to an action performed by a woman that is more masculine than expected or that is independent. It is often followed by the phrase, "And make me a sandwich." Additionally, it is also used regularly to make fun of people who actually believe that women should stay in the kitchen, depicting them as ignorant.


The exact origin of this phrase is debatable, as there are numerous possible sources contributing to it; it is most likely that this phrase was already used to a small degree off-line, but became widespread both because of a comment made by Chef Gordon Ramsay (which sparked the sentiment, but did not state it or necessarily support it) and through inclusions of its variations in popular media, such as in the Batman Beyond episode, "Hooked Up". The video, "Batman Beyond: GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN" has 876,621 views as of January 17th, 2017.

I've been visiting ladies' houses up and down the country with our film crew and you would be amazed how little cooking the girls are doing. Seriously, there are huge numbers of young women out there who know how to mix cocktails but can't cook to save their lives, whereas men are finding their way into the kitchen in ever growing numbers.
