What is a "toque"?

A toque is a type of hat that has a narrow brim or no brim at all typically made of soft fabric, and features a close-fitting design that sits on top of the head. It usually has no brim and may have a decorative pom-pom or tassel on top. Toques can come in various materials, including wool, felt, and even fur. In modern fashion, the toque is often worn as a winter accessory to keep the head and ears warm, but it can also be a stylish addition to an outfit, adding a touch of vintage charm. The origin of the word "toque" is French, and it has been used to describe various types of hats in both French and English-speaking countries for centuries.

toque definition and meaning

What is a "toque"?

A toque, also known as a chef's hat, is a tall, cylindrical hat worn by chefs and other culinary professionals in the kitchen. The hat is typically made of white cotton or similar material and features a pleated or gathered top, giving it a distinctive look. The purpose of the toque is both practical and symbolic; it keeps the chef's hair out of the food while also representing the chef's rank and level of expertise. In traditional French cuisine, the number of pleats in a chef's toque was said to represent the number of cooking techniques the chef had mastered.
