THE TRADITIONAL CHEF’S UNIFORM
A traditional chef’s uniform consists of:
- White toque blanche (tall, pleated cylindrical-shaped hat)
- White double-breasted jacket with knotted cloth buttons
- Loose-fitting pants in houndstooth pattern (black and white checks)
The origins of the chef’s uniform dates back to the mid-19th century when the well-known French chef, Marie-Antoine Careme, employed it as a way to honor the work of professional chefs. The hat was already widely in use, but Marie-Antoine instituted the other elements including the choice of white. The uniform was then brought to Western countries by French chef Georges Auguste Escoffier during his reign at renowned London restaurants at the Savoy and Carlton Hotels. Its popularity soon spread worldwide.
Today, many professional chefs continue to wear the full traditional uniform while some opt to forgo the full toque blanche in favor of a skull cap or hairnet.
