We all noticed chefs in our favorite
restaurant, at one point or another. We recognize them by their signature hats
and chef aprons. Chefs have used cooking aprons for a countless number of
years. Not only is it the attire-of-choice at many high-end restaurants, but
also the chef aprons are the functional accessory to their wardrobe.
wear cooking aprons for several reasons. In the kitchen, an apron is worn below
knee-length to prevent burns from spillage. If hot water, oil, or any other
liquid spilled onto it, the apron can be quickly removed to minimize burns and
injuries. They also have pockets to carry utensils from one part of the kitchen
to another. Chef aprons serve a variety of purposes and most of us will admit
that chefs wearing cooking aprons have a more professional look.
I came to work for the Learning Resources Center (LRC) at the ITT Technical Institute in September 2005. During my professional career, I worked in special, public, and academic libraries since the age of sixteen – including Latvian State Science and Technology Library, International Fine Arts College, Main Library at the Miami-Dade Public Library System, and Art Institutes Miami International University of Art & Design. I received my Master's of Library Science and Bibliography at the LSU (Latvian State University) in 1976. At my free time, I enjoy running, knitting, reading, and writing.
I published three poetry books, and a nonfiction book called “Fashion Librarian” about fashion resources, study and teaching, and information literacy for fashion design.
