Vanity is the last thing we should care about because at the end of the day, we look like sh*t and smell like food (or on some days, the dumpster). Our hair is a mess (that expensive new hairdo you just got means crap in the kitchen since it is all pulled back and covered up). Your flawless make up will be ruined by heat, grease, sweat…sometimes tears. And nobody cares how you look or what you are wearing in the kitchen.Okay…I don’t really care either, but I thought a little color would bring some pizzazz to the kitchen. Black and white are pretty much the only (or mostly) colors worn in many kitchens. And I kind of have a thing for bright colors. Even in my wardrobe outside of the kitchen, I sometimes like to wear bright colors. I mean I don’t dress like a clown, but I might wear a bright color here and there. So I have been shopping around online and bought a set of new chefs hats in pink, purple, and red.
And I also purchased a pair of bright orange Mario Batali shoes. So I am pretty colorful in the kitchen. Am I rockin’ it or what?! My boss cracks up at me when I dress in these colors lol. And he called me a Korean Batali. When I wear the red hat, he says I look like one of them Japanese sushi chefs.
I am still browsing around for new chef’s jackets and pants. I am thinking pink and purple jackets. And for pants, hmm…anything other than the checkered pants I’ve grown so tired of.
