Johnson & Wales has a strict dress policy. If you aren't perfectly pressed or have a stain the Chef has the right to send you out of class for the day (and it does happen!).
Everyday I have to wear a clean and freshly pressed chef's coat. My "neck-kerchief" is dark blue meaning that I am a first year culinary student.
I always have a thermometer, sharpie, and pen in my pocket.
My hair is pulled back into a hat.
And my very hideous shoes that need to be shined.
The uniform is super comfy; almost like wearing jammies. But it definitely isn't the most figure flattering outfit! On the weekends when I put on jeans, do my hair, and put on some makeup I feel as if I've totally forgotten what I look like!
I don't have class tomorrow and I am so excited to spend a 3 day weekend out of uniform!
