The toque is a brimless, close-fitting hat worn high on the head. In French it describes the tall, white, puffed-top chef’s that.
The toque was popular in the Renaissance, in the 1890s, and with many different style variations throughout the 20th century.
Toques are often adorned with laces, beading, and feathers.
