The Chef Uniform and its Significance
When we think of certain professions, we sometimes tend to
automatically think of the uniforms they tend to wear. Because we have these
images in our mind, we shy away from those wearing anything other than their
traditional uniform. A chef uniform is one of the better recognized uniforms
among several professions, although some might not see the significance.
However, each component of the chef uniform holds significance.
The Parts of the Chef Uniform
- Chef Coat- One of the most important pieces of the chef
uniform is the coat. A white coat helps to show cleanliness while the thickness
helps protect the chef from the heat of the kitchen. It can also help protect
against splatters from hot oil or grease during cooking. These coats also tend
to come double breasted to help hide any messes that may occur during a shift.
- Chef/Cook Pants- In the past, the pants worn by a chef were
in a checkered black and white pattern to hide the spills and mess that come
with working in a kitchen. Today, chef pants may come in different colors, but
they still work to hide the kitchen mess. They are also made to sit loosely on
the chef in order to keep them comfortable and cool while working long hours around
the heat of ovens and stovetops.
- Chef Apron- Some chefs prefer to wear their own clothing
while in the kitchen, which means they need a way to protect their clothing. A
chef apron will help protect against messes while also coming in different styles
that can hold different utensils.
- Chef Hat- The chef uniform is often most identifiable by the
chef hat. While helping to protect the head of the chef, the height of the
height also indicates the rank of the chef wearing it.
