Kitchens vary when it comes to dress I know but for the most part each kitchen has its own uniform. I interviewed a guy today (KM was off and I had to do it) and he seemed surprised that all of us wear chef coats and hairnets and hats... so I asked him at his current job what they wear and his reply was... whatever we want. I found that kind of interesting as I have always had to wear some kind of uniform no matter where I was working at the time so I was wondering.. how do you dress in your kitchen and is it an open or closed one? I've worked in both open and closed kitchens and in three of the kitchens (including the one I am in now) I have always worn whites. The hospital was their uniform issue (kitchen scrubs) and when i was at the cafe it was a red tshirt with the cafe logo on it and black bottoms and shoes. Currently I'm in an open kitchen and we wear chef jackets, black chef pants and caps. Not baseball caps but the fabric ones... sorry I forget the name of them!
