If a partner criticised you in the past, is it fair for them to get upset when you've lost your confidence?

Imagine you cooked a meal it's not the first time you've cooked it and had good feedback but when you cook it for your partner they say its not very good or make criticisms. To the point where when you cook at other times they make excuses as to not being able to make it back in time, and they eat before they come home.
Although you've spoken about how upsetting that was and they said they'd do better. When you now prepare a meal you start making excuses for it not being so great and anxiously awaiting positive feedback.
That nervousness carries over to them and they say its nice and they enjoy your food but it feels hesitant.
Maybe you stumble or just can't get comfortable because you feel awkward.
Is that person allowed to get upset?

This is just one example of maybe criticising choice of clothes, hairstyles, decoration etc.
You stayed because it wasn't a constant thing but it did hurt when it happened none the less.
