Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
The word chef typically conjures up a visual of someone dressed in pristine whites, perhaps with a puffy hat on their head. Even the Muppets’ Swedish Chef gets this gear, although we can’t understand what he says!
The “toque blanche” is thought to be an evolution of the headgear cooks wore throughout the centuries. The idea that the hat ought to be white is thought to have originated with Boucher, personal chef to the French statesman Talleyrand. The different heights of the hat can represent rank in the kitchen, while the 100 folds in the toque are said to represent the many ways a chef can cook an egg.
Today, Boucher’s call for the more sanitary white hat has led to kitchen staff in the Western world typically wearing “chef’s whites.” This will often include a double-breasted jacket of thick cotton cloth which protects the cook from the heat of the stove or oven or any boiling liquids.
