Chefs, Bartenders and Baristas Reveal Their Every Day Carries

Tim Love's Every Day Carry.

I’ve often thought about which items I should have on me at all times—essentials like keys and a wallet, of course, but also gizmos like mini flashlights and bottle openers that are needed only occasionally (but oh-so helpful when they are). Turns out there’s a whole community of folks online who have turned this question into a full-time obsession. They’ve dubbed it Every Day Carry (EDC), and on blogs, Tumblrs, forums and elsewhere, users share photos and descriptions of their personal sets of super-practical—sometimes tactical—gear, with the goal of always being ready for just about any situation. In that spirit, we asked chefs, bartenders and baristas for their professional EDCs—the portable tools they need to perform just about any job-related task. Scroll through the following slideshow to see what gear these pros couldn’t imagine living without: Professional Every Day Carry.
