    Pastry Chef's

    Anyone here have any suggestions on what type of knife /equipment roll to buy a young pastry chef? Needs to fit measuring cups,spoons, off sets of all sizes, a moleskin, etc.

    good question... what comes into mind right now:

    a long serrated knife to slice génoise/dacquoise and other soft cooked pastes?

    a sugar thermometer (that can go higher in temp than regular ones)

    a sugar copper russe for caramel

    a sugar lamp

    a set of good whips if you dont use machines (matfer rock)

    a set of good heat compliant maryses (soft spatulas) to save some more stuff, and be able to use them on hot stuff without ruining them (black ones from matfer too)

    a good petty to slice fruits

    lol

    then i would stick with one good petty; one good gyuto, one good long serrated knife and a soft spatula. i have all this in my roll along with other knives.

    but i would recommend to buy now and then your gear, when you feel the need. in a kitchen or another you wont need the same knives, i guess it's probably same in pastry.

    and if you are starting in this profession, first: congrats, second, most of the gear needed should be at your disposal where you work. buy your own things when you will feel limited by the hardware at your disposal (this shouldn't come too fast)

    My lady is a pastry chef. She keeps a tool box with a lock with the cheaper misc stuff at work and uses a knife roll to take the knives home each day.

    Hope this helps.

    I think you misunderstood the question, I am looking to buy something to carry all of this equipment. It is for my girlfriend. she has tools but no way to carry them.

    I think chuckles has the right idea; You're going to have to keep the stuff thats easily replaceable at work in a box or something, and take the more valuable stuff home in a regular bag. I don't see any way to reasonably take whisks, knives, spatulas, spoons, cups, scales etc to and from work every day.
