In the work kitchen, I have been sporting the standard black or white chef’s jacket, checkered pants, white hat, and black slip resistant shoes since I can remember….it’s pretty much the standard uniform that chefs all over world have been cooking in for years and years. But I have to admit that I kind of got bored of my chefs wardrobe. I mean, we don’t show up to work to set fashion trends, but who says you can’t spice it up and be a little different, right?
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.
