Dressing the Part

June 29 2012 – Robert Fiumara

The culinary industry is an exciting, fast-paced industry that continues to grow year after year. As general consumers become more aware of the food they eat, where it comes from and the skill with which it is prepared, cooking techniques both traditional and experimental are coming to the forefront of media attention.  Many chefs attaining a status that has, in the past, been reserved for the likes of movie celebrities.

World class chefs have restaurant premieres and their red carpets are as star-studded as those commonly seen at large Hollywood events like the Oscars or the Tony awards. Eating has always been a favorite human past time, but now it is reaching a cultural level of elegant indulgence that has not been celebrated for centuries.

Along with this spotlight for the cuisine, the creators of these mouth-watering delicacies are being held to the same Paparazzo standards as television and film stars.  Their lives have become a voyeuristic spread on the front page of tabloid covers, everything from their food to how they look walking down the street.  Because of this, chefs are more aware of their appearance than ever.  It has become more than just a desire to appear professional and serious about their craft.  It has become the standard to move toward a more fashion forward way of thinking about the culinary arts.

Working in a kitchen where the stress is high and heat even higher, comfort has long been a major concern.  Now, however, it is also important to make sure that a chef and his or her team look the part.  Design is just as important as function in today’s industry.
