There are many kitchen gadgets I know and love. My Vita Mix literally travels with me (when I travel by car). I heart my nut milk bags, as you know, a bamboo cutting board and I can skip through the daisies together. Josh often teases me about my need to use measuring spoons for everything, but I blame my devotion to all of you and my desire to be able to offer recipes for my most delicious creations.
But most kitchen trinkets, well, I could take or leave most of them, most of the time. There is however, something I have become hooked on. Aprons. I love a great apron!
I have blah-dee-blah ikea place-mats and plates. My knives are nothing to write home about because on average I have 200 peeps using them in a six month period. But my aprons- I do not share my aprons!
I attribute this to my past life in fashion school. I used to make all my own clothes and when I had a ‘real’ job, getting dressed for work was seriously the best part of the whole working girl thing. Nowadays, however, I am usually on my computer which means I’m lucky if I get out of my PJs or in the kitchen, which means I am likely making a massive mess and so skip the fancy clothes. I have subbed in cute clothes for cute aprons and they really do make the outfit!
I think it makes me feel profesh, in my own special way. And by my own special way I mean that I feel way better when I have a giant food stain on my apron, rather than running down my entire outfit, which is not altogether uncommon. Either way, I am hooked on aprons and can’t stop searching for them and acquiring new ones.
My current fave is by the adorably talented Julie Cline of Julie’s Aprons. I showed off my latest and greatest during the cooking demo at our recent Digestive Health Retreat. I sent an email to Julie, thanking her for helping me to look the part and asked if I might be able to offer one lucky chefista one of her sweet creations. She said yes! So enter to win below.
What I am really curious about though is what is your gadget, trinket, table ornament or what-have-you that you feel rather naked in the kitchen without.
Question of the Day: What if your fave kitchen trinket, gadget or accessory?
