I guess I just don't know. I'll give you that "respect" thing, because I guess it's always a good thing to give or show. The best way to show me any respect is to come back to eat at whatever place I'm cooking. Come back often.
I heard there were 6 managers there and 10 on the waiting list.........kaneohegirl,

ChefBillyB,What kind of restaurant do you have Joey..............
i'd bet a paycheck, they were designed by a man!
I guarantee you it was a man who modified one and made a "nursing bra". Where were those in high school? flop and drop...I was going to say something along the same lines about the womens' brazier!! Only a man could have dreamt that torture trap up!!
So on pointkaneohegirl,
please pardon the tongue in cheek sarcasm in my earlier post...just couldn't help myself! there should be a emoticon for sarcasm. as far as the wearing of a chefs coat, you're a home cook right? if you want to prance around your kitchen in little else than a chefs coat, or you just want to see how it looks and feels on...go for it! whatever makes your cake rise. wearing one is not a rite of passage or neccessarily even earned. most, if not all corporate kitchens require their employees, including dishwashers, to either wear a chef coat or utility shirt, pants and apron. you don't need a degree for sure. personally, i only wear a coat if i am catering a party and am serving and or visible to guests, or if i am in the dining room schmoozing after dinner service. my current kitchen is small, cramped and hotter than a mid summers day in phoenix. even though women's jackets have come a long way with great styles and even greater colors, i still find them restrictive and uncomfortable. of course, if i'm cheffin in someone else's kitchen, the jacket is on, especially if it's an exhibition kitchen. if i were a pastry chef or baker, i would certainly wear one all the time, no matter how hot the kitchen was....chocolate, flour, eggs,....messy stuff that gets in your hair, your eyes, your everywhere....just curious, i don't know what you do for a living or if you are home raising children, but with alll your enthusiasm, why don't you work in a kitchen somewhere 1 or 2 days a week? a small cafe, bistro, catering company...they would probably love to have someone like you...
