    So I'm going to get my Associates in Baking and Pastry Arts this semester at a community college.  I'm confused on what kind of hat I should get as there are several to choose from.  I already bought a toque hat (http://www.pastryschoolsource.com/images/toque_white_03.jpg) but am not sure if that's the kind students wear or not.  I don't want to show up to class wearing a hat that only a professor should wear lol.  Can someone who knows please help me out? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/chef.gif

    Um, are you looking at a hat for the graduation ceremony or work wear?

    If the former, the "mortarboard", the other options are for advanced degrees.

    If the latter, whatever your chef wants you to wear /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

    If it is to wear in class, ask your professor/chef!
