La toque de chef


I think that this chef was just taking a break or perhaps just starting for the day on Rue Jacob.  Is it me or does la toque (chef's hat) seem just a bit too small for his head?

I do love the chef's attire and the starched hat.


Rue Jacob
75006, Paris

I love it -- never seen one quite like it before! Maybe just a tad too small, but then he's a guy!! Head is always bigger than the hat! Ha! Have a fun, great week, Genie!

Hugs

I think everything looks a little small for him!

I think I need one of those for when I'm cooking at home - especially macarons and madeleines!

well, i don't suppose we'd want the hat falling over his eyes as he was whipping up something delectable in the kitchen.

It looks like a white flowerpot! :)

The quality of a restaurant is often measured by the number of toques. Hope this one has more than one.

The toque does make him look just a tad trapezoidal. He's probably an excellent chef—who enjoys his own food. Good catch, Genie!

Humm...something doesn't look right? HA Do you remember the "Cone Head family" that used to be on Saturday Night Live? If his hat were a bit more pointed it would look just like their heads did. HA

I thought the same thing when I saw the photo! LOL to Kris.

Randy said...

I have to agree too, the hat does look a little small.

Jack said...

The guy looks a bit slovenly. I hope that does not reflect on his wizardry in the kitchen.

The cone head look is just not very Parisian...

I will be in self-imposed chocolat, fromage, pâtisserie, wine withdrawal. The tastes and smells of Paris can be recalled in an instant.

Thank you all for hanging with me while I was exploring Paris and gathering photos and stories to share with you.

Bises,
Genie

I think the hat is the right side, it's his head that's too big :)

Je pense qu'il goûte un peu trop sa cuisine ! ou alors c'est un chef qui a la grosse tête...
gros bisous

Le Chef definitely needs to re-think his professional wardrobe...perhaps in a size or two bigger???

hee hee...
No, the toque is just the right size. He is too big for his toque!
;-D

Could he be an imposter. He's done the real chef in and snaffled his clothes! Mon Dieu!
