Shoes and Craft

A shoemaker's blog about shoemaking

Monthly Archives: May 2017


I perfectly understand what “shoemaker” stands for in the vocabulary of a chef. I do. And I still find it extremely insulting. It is one of those ancient terms (I am not gonna quote any – hypocrites would just kill me), although despite racial, gender..etc related ones, which is more or less disappeared, this one just survived. How? Because shoemakers disappeared almost. Nobody left to complain. Except this one right here.

I couldn’t refrain from answering, so I did.
