This Thing Now: Kitchentape on Instagram
We're pretty obsessed with This Thing Now. Here's how to get it into your life.
Blue painter's tape is a powerful thing in a restaurant kitchen.
Inscribed with a Sharpie and brandished on giant Cambros and quart-size take-out containers, it lets any busy cook barreling into the walk-in fridge know two things immediately: a) what exactly is in said container and b) how fresh it is.
And now, thanks to kitchentape on Instagram, we know one more thing: Correct spelling isn't always a given.
With 809 posts and counting, this Instagram account hilariously chronicles linguistic mishaps in restaurant kitchens submitted by chefs across the country using #kitchentape. It's a cheeky inside look into this universal practice taken on by every back-of-house team, struggles and all. "Because," as kitchentape's Instagram tagline rightfully warns, "kitchen tape doesn't have spell check."
