I have graduated The Culinary Institute of America in 2013 and became a chef assistant in one of New York city restaurants. I began to move up the career ladder – just a few years later I've worked as a chef in a 4* restaurant.
Many people wonder, "Why are chef hats tall?" Well, this article will go over why this is the case.
Most kitchens have some kind of a mechanical device that cranks up and down the kitchen floors. This can be in the form of a large fan, an air-conditioner, or just a regular old wind generator. This means that at any given time in your kitchen, you may need to lift things off of the floor and place them on the counter, or move your containers up and down the kitchen.
To get the most use out of the chef hat, make sure that you get one that is at least five feet tall. While you will need to have at least a four foot one to fit into many kitchens today, the larger ones are very handy.
Another question that often arises, "Why are chef hats tall?" is that it does not allow you to breathe.
The reason that most of them are tall is so that they are able to adequately distribute the air flow, which helps to keep the temperature stable in the oven, even while cooking. This is necessary for the real chef.
