Frequently Asked Questions
White has been the traditional chef’s color since the 19th century when it was introduced to give the cooking profession a sense of importance and high regard.
White was chosen largely for hygiene reasons, as it enabled cooks and kitchen employees to more easily notice when their clothing was soiled. It also carried some prestige due to its association with respected professions such as science and medicine.
Although many of today’s chefs honor tradition by wearing chef whites, other colored chef coats have become increasingly popular in recent times, particularly in restaurants with open kitchens.
There isn’t a specific meaning behind the color of a chef’s jacket. It most often comes down to the cook’s personal preference, or a need to match the aesthetic of the dining establishment.
First and foremost, a chef’s coat is designed to keep the chef safe. It is made of high quality, double-thick cotton, usually fire-resistant.
Wearing the appropriate chef coat is just one positive step you can take towards ensuring food safety. Chefs must wear the correct protective clothing in food areas at all times, as this will help to ensure that any contaminants carried on normal clothing, such as pet hairs or dirt, do not contaminate the food.
For chefs, the heat can become very uncomfortable, especially if they are working a long shift. Wearing the appropriate uniform is crucial for personal comfort. Chefs must tell somebody if their uniform is uncomfortable or ill-fitting, as this will affect their comfort, workability, and performance in the long run.
There’s no doubt that chef uniform gives an appearance of professionalism. If a customer notices a chef wearing their clothes, they may have questions about how safe the food is that they’re preparing. Customers are also able to identify your staff quicker, resulting in reduced waiting times, quicker and better customer service, and overall happier customers.
Sometimes a restaurant owner might introduce a color scheme to designate different groups of staff.
Brand Identity And Restaurant Theme
Staff uniforms are influenced by the design and branding of the establishment as a whole. You can use colors to emphasize your business culture and restaurant theme. For instance:
white signifies hygiene and cleanliness, helps repel heat from the kitchen, and is seen as classic or traditional.
The black one can hide stains and enable establishments to have their chefs working in open kitchens exposed to diners’ eyes.
Make your chef’s attire just one part of your brand identity—you should aim for consistency between your interior decoration, tableware, signage, menus, and staff clothing.
