About Toque Blanche
Named after the French translation for a chef’s white hat, our name Toque Blanche embodies the expertise and professionalism reflected in our store. Many years ago, the number of pleats in a chef’s hat signified the number of ways a chef could cook an egg, with a more-pleated hat being adorned only by the most experienced and skillful of chefs. In business since 1996, our experienced staff and excellent selection of products serves the needs of a diverse community of professional and home chefs, culinary students and casual cooks.


You are sure to find the tools you need to prepare your next meal in our online store or at our retail location. We stock a wide variety of the best cookware, bakeware, and kitchen accessories for chefs of all levels. We strive to offer a unique collection of products.
