Men in Aprons: There All the Range This New Year
There are many stereotypes in life that coincide with a person’s gender that originate from thousands of years ago.
Girls are traditionally associated with the colour pink and boys with the colour blue; as well as women being ‘in’ the kitchen as the house wife doing all the cleaning and men at work being the bread winner.
However we are in the 21st century and these old clichés are so loosely based and acted upon nowadays. It is extremely popular and acceptable in this day to see a stay-at-home dad, and for the mum to go out to work.
More now than ever there is a gender role reversal heating up in the kitchen; and especially since the economic credit crunch has caused redundancies and job cutbacks, more men are donning the Apron and wielding the ladle.
What is more, hugely well-known male chefs are appearing all over the television in cooking programmes and reality shows such as Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal.
These ‘macho’ TV personalities are perhaps inspiring mean to get in the kitchen and cook up a storm; appealing to their male ego with culinary competition, achievement, and the sweet taste of victory.
WHY WEAR AN APRON
Of course as with women, men do not just wear Aprons in the kitchen but also use them in their work; for example in butchers, a doctor, a dentist, or a waiter.
