Chef Uniform Help - Page 2

post #31 of 42

I too have used Happy Chef for years. You wont find custom stuff, just good quailty

utilitarian pro-wear in a good variety . With emphasis on inexpensive--they are THEEE cheapest

chefwear site I've encountered. Which is obviously nice if you tend to dirty em a lot.

Still waiting on pictures of these chefs wearing chili pepper pants.

 

Keller

Achatz

Bocuse

Ducasse

Ripert

Trotter

 

Or anyone who works for them, either.

 

Argue all you want, in the end, it's an opinion.

 

The fact is, no highly respected chef would ever wear such an outfit or pants in their kitchen, because of their professionalism, nor would they allow the staff to do the same.

Not arguing, just disagreeing.

As you said, you were stating an opinion.

Which means you are not necessarily right.

Also, not all establishments are 4 star, nor should they be.

That doesn't mean that they aren't staffed with professionals.

I do this for a living, and carry myself appropriately, therefore I am a professional.

I also treat others with respect, and don't ask them if they are ignorant just because their opinion differs from mine.

Fair enough, Jim.. no problems with you personally, just differing opinions.

 

Didn't mean to come off so harsh.

I have worked for Keller, Achatz and Trotter.  All three(3) supplied uniforms for all the staff.  No choices were needed or made.  I've also worked for a number of top-named chefs that did not supply uniforms.  The only requirement for them was to wear something clean and correct for every shift.  One(1) cool guy I worked for let the staff choose their attire as a group; line wore the same, prep the same, dishwashers the same et al.  He bought three(3) sets for everyone and used a laundry service.  Just as the stupid argument that anyone plates better food using $600 knives, uniforms have nothing to do with the quality of food that goes out of the kitchen.  It's just my opinion now that those who worry about such petty trivial things do so because they have a deficiency in cooking skills along with a personality power difficulty.  You can't buy skills with expensive equipment and you can't dress up a lack of skills with pretty uniforms.

Well it ain't any of those guys and it ain't chili pepper pants but how's this

 

 

 

 

It was from a calendar that vita prep did around 1998 or so. I still have one stashed ina box somewhere. 12 famous chefs with their blender and nothing else. I do believe that Ripert was one of them actually. Nice to see a sense of humor because far too many people take themselves far too seriously.

I have probably the best sense of humor you'll find, i'd be willing to bet on that.

 

Sarcastic, dirty, crude humor IMO.

 

Sorry for holding this industry, and the people who work for me at a high standard and a high sense of personal professionalism, it won't happen again.

You know, it only keeps for 3 to 5 days in the walk-in. Thaw it out and serve it up! smile.gif
