I was in line at the bank and I had a guy who had two voices and was talking to himslef. He also invaded my personal space!
I know someone who puts everything in her bra..cell phone...money!
I work at a bakery/Italian That also has hot foods,deli and full bakery. I work as a clerk in the front of the store, handling bread, using bread slicer, back and forth to the deli, and hot foods pizza etc. then using cash register,we are required to wear hairnets, and gloves, It's a very fast paced place and if I wear the plain plastic gloves. they are loose, when we tie the bread sometimes the fingers of gloves get caught while were fastening the bread ties, so I try using the tighter poly gloves, which work well but you can't take them off and on for ever customer, so I keep them on and use our tissues with the gloves on, most of the bakery girls don't wear the gloves they just use tissues, I know this is a very long winded....sorry any body have any suggestions !!
Iowa must be the same as Indiana - gloved hands for all contact with ready to eat food (salad, sliced bread, buns, cookies). You can touch the raw cookie dough before baking, but once baked, must use gloves or spatula/tissue. We go through a lot of gloves. Our restaurant employees change them very frequently, though, between tasks, which is good.
No gloves or hairnet required here in MA. I scrub my hands like a surgeon when I bake, but when I'm sculpting something I don't wear gloves. I never see gloves on any of the tutorials on Cake Central, in fact, I've seen long, acrylic nails. Nail polish and long nails are a no-no for me. The bacteria under fingernails is something to consider, even with the most sanitary of bakers. Starbucks will not allow employees to have long nails or nail polish. I also will not wear my wedding and engagement rings while I work, which means I almost always walk out of the house a single lady...
I understand they might not have to have nets however, don't you think for the sake of hair in the food anyone would want them? I wear one since I don't want to risk losing a customer to that kind of error. Beside the fact that on that show they are always touching their beards (the guys) or faces then the fondant without gloves. We are constantly losing skins cells even in our hands so that bacteria is getting into the cake. Will it make you sick? Probably not however it just sounds gross. Would you rather buy a nice cake that has been touched so much or one where you know it is just as nice and they've used gloves?Besides, the cast of Ace of Cakes just appear rugged and unkempt. Even culinary chef/instructors teach to keep it clean.
