Chef's hats - hygienic headgear for gastronomy
The chef's hat is the hallmark of every chef and is just part of the professional kitchen. But a chef's hat is not just a beautiful tradition. The headgear also has very practical reasons: First and foremost, it is about hygiene in the kitchen. As everywhere where food is processed and food is prepared, staff must wear special sanitary clothing - from head to toe. In gastronomy, it is particularly important to wear a hygienic headgear. It is required by law and the HACCP Directive requires it.

Chef's hats are ideal for the kitchen. Because especially in the restaurant kitchen it is hot. Anyone who has spent several hours on the stove, grill or oven knows how fast you can get into a sweat. A chef's hat absorbs the sweat from the forehead and prevents it from dripping into the eyes and food. Therefore, it is important that the chef's hat is made of a particularly absorbent material and is very kind to the skin. So your kitchen staff is happy about a particularly high wearing comfort. Nice side effect: a chef's hat keeps the hair back and prevents the proverbial "hair in the soup".
Traditionally, one also recognizes the height of the chef's hat, the rank of the person who wears it. The chef's hat distinguishes the chef from the sous chefs, apprentices and kitchen helpers.

Excursus: The History of the Chef's Hat
The Frenchman Marie-Antoine Carême is considered the inventor of the chef's hat. At first, it was customary in the kitchen to wear a white bonnet in the form of a balloon, which hung limp on its head. When Carême cooked the Congress of Vienna in 1821, he found that his cap was not light enough. So he stabilized the inside of the cap with a stiff paper ring and the chef's hat stood straight up like a chimney. The present form of the chef's hat was invented.
Even today, the chef's hat "crowns" the chef and has to convince both visually and practically.
