Corporate Aprons – The clothes that chefs wear hasn’t really changed so much over the years. Actually that picture has become almost like the hallmark of a chef being used in so many logo’s etc..
In 2017 anything else goes. The stripes on the apron, the chequered shoes, in fact chefs look a lot more like pirates these days with their scarves tied to their heads! Interesting how the apron has ever stayed, clearly from necessity and practicality as opposed to a style statement. After all, the styles come and go and headgear changes all the time, the usefulness of the apron determines its permanent and simple addition to the apparel of their chef.
When you think about food preparation, the apron is a must addition, particularly once you have a messy task to perform. Many aprons are not clean as they maintain the splashes and spills from reaching the main clothing and it’s also the right and easiest place to wash your hands if you need to in a hurry.
There are so many cooking shows on TV now. A good deal of the most popular and well known chefs seem to originate from England. They all have one thing in common though; even with their different menu and cooking styles and personalities as well as amusement value and recipe ideas producing selection for the viewer, they all wear the good old apron!
You only need to enter any kitchen store these days to observe the variety of aprons that you could use for food preparation. Chef wear has almost become a style of it’s own in the past couple of decades too. Who would have thought that seeing the likes of Gordon Ramsay walking in slow motion through a hallway ripping off his chef apparel could be classed as ‘sexy’? Let us face it, until relatively recently, most TV cooking shows were dominated by women. But, one thing that will always remain, when styles come and personalities and go do exactly the same thing… the humble apron will always be a part of the working chef’s day.
