I can tell you from experience that the checkered pants were created by obsequeious, ego-inflated head chefs to make their assistants look geeky!!

thank you marmalady. veddy interesting.

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

chef boyardi, or boy-ar-dee, is a very interesting guy. i saw a show on the history channel about him (see wasabi, it's not all about bullets and hitler). he was a presidential chef, and was pushed in to the commercial food business by so many people asking him for authentic italian sauce and pasta.
does anyone know why chefs wear white stovepipe hats? i've always wondered that. i'm guessing it has to do with containing hair, as well as heat dissipation.
so they appeared to loom over the rest of the world. He is a real person??? I thought he was fictional, his food is disguesting. Asking him for authentic italian sauces is a joke because what is in those cans is not fit for human consumption.

Chefs' Pants

Chefs wear either black pants (common for executive chefs) or "hounds tooth" black and white checked pants. The checkered pants hide lots of stains.
