We all know how important a good night’s sleep is; it gives our bodies a chance to recuperate, restores our cognitive abilities and can even help to improve our overall health. But if you run a hotel or B&B establishment, you will be particularly concerned with ensuring that your guests get the rest they need.
Unfortunately, beds can be unhygienic places – did you know, for example, that we lose on average 320,000 skin cells during a typical night’s sleep? These cells attract dust mites, which if left to reproduce can cause people to suffer from skin allergies, and even weakened immune systems in some cases. As well as dust mites though, bed sheets can contain oils, sweat, bodily fluids and even food debris.
The tradition of wearing chef’s whites – classic, double-breasted white cotton jackets, usually worn with black or checked trousers – dates as far back as the 19th Century, when renowned French chef Marie-Antoine Carême developed the uniform in order to honour the chef’s role. But why did this garment become so popular across the world, and continues to be so almost 200 years later?
It’s always interesting to keep an eye on design trends in the restaurant and catering industry. The independent UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards, which celebrates design from establishments all over the world, was recently held in London – and we thought we’d share some of our thoughts on the winners.
