Why Wear a Chefs Uniform?
As home cooks, we rarely don a uniform to perform our duties. On occasion we will toss an apron on to prevent our clothes from getting a spattering of grease. For those of us who love to cook, and do this everyday, not for the sake of our customers, but for the sake of our love of food and of our families, we may be missing a valuable part of the cooking tradition— the uniform.
There is hardly a restaurant you walk into where uniforms are not worn in the kitchen; the checked pants and double-breasted jackets or the full-length apron and hat. Specially designed skid-free and comfortable shoes to sooth tired feet from the toils of preparations. It may be that the uniform is taken for granted or worn without great thought. However, the uniform of this honored position is one to understand and respect. You might just discover that the origin and explanations behind the traditional chefs' attire are as interesting as the uniform is to look at.
