Hi

Why do some chefs wear gloves to prepare food that is to be cooked?

For example, raw meat and cutting raw vegetables?

Are their hands cold?  

Is it a fashion?

This practice is now very widespread and it seems more of a success for manufacturers than for food safety and chefs.

Any comments or views greatly appreciated as i think this is worth discussion.

You seem to have got it right.

Gloves do not ensure food safety and may even have a 'seat belt effect'.

However, millions upon millions are used and what really upsets me is that people with no knowledge about food preparation (or food safety) are telling chefs to use them with so much confidence.

Why are some chefs treated by some people as not responsible for food safety and end up being commanded to do the wrong thing?

I suppose it's worth mentioning that one USA style store do use gloves effectively in preparing high risk food. Of course if they take th emoney after sandwich prep. Well done S-----.
