I consider myself a pretty good cook; I used to throw dinner parties, and friends would come over. They would ask for seconds!
Since I got married, the husband picks on my cooking, then brags about his cooking.. and the kids are starting to pick up on it.

I'd say "Hubby, if your cooking is so much better you have the floor, we'd all like to enjoy a gourmet meal!" "Otherwise, your suggestions are welcome & your help greatly appreciated." Look, I'm by no means the best cook in the world but, I try & have gotten better the more I've tried. My SO is far from delicate with his criticisms in general but, when it comes to my cooking he appreciates the effort. And he eats it, and he tells me what he liked, makes suggestions on what I can do better or differently (he cooks some things better than me, for sure), helps me out if I need it & encourages our LO to eat it too. I don't think that's too much to expect from someone who is a self-proclaimed chef :)

Oh, & some guys are just born to tease so, if the kids are picking up on it having a disrespectful tone then you two should address that. If there is a way to playfully tease back, I don't think it's a bad thing for kids to see that kind of banter between parents provided its playful and not mean spirited. JMO, HTHs.
