How to safely hold your own Great British Bake Off
Friday, 7 October 2016 | Geoff
It’s that time of year when everyone is hooked on The Great British Bake Off. For many, it becomes tempting to gather their friends together and channel their inner - Mary Berry for a baking bonanza. If you’re going to go down this route, remember it’s not just ingredients you need. You’ll also need clothing to make sure everyone stays safe while they’re whipping up their favourite cakes. Here are three items of clothing that will help you and your friends avoid injury in the kitchen:
A wide range of gloves can be used for your bake off. Disposable gloves can be used to carry ingredients like chicken, thus preventing bacteria from spreading to your hands. There are also firm knitwear gloves that would be ideal to remove items from the oven, as well as chemical resistant gloves for when you get around to washing up afterwards.
OK, so you don’t actually see anyone wearing snood caps on Bake Off. But then again, you never really see anyone eat the food, apart from Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. If you’re planning to whip up a tasty treat and want your nearest and dearest to enjoy it, then a snood cap will reduce the chance of an idle hair becoming part of the mixture. The majority of people in the food industry use snood caps if they have long hair because they realise how easy it is for their hair to become a burden.
A chef's jacket will really have you looking and feeling the part in the kitchen. In the hospitality industry, these jackets are favoured because they can be cleaned easily and protect the clothing underneath. It is advisable that you consider wearing one of these jackets, because it will protect your outfit should anything splash and spill on to you.
Be safe and have fun!
There is plenty of fun to be had in the kitchen, but you should also make sure that you stay safe along the way. There is a whole host of clothing that the food industry relies on and it’s easy to purchase online.
