Sometimes the simplest kitchen tasks are the hardest. Like boiling an egg. I’ve also found that the simplest tools—such as aprons—are equally confusing. Aprons that are too short. (I like them to reach just above the knee.) Or aprons that are made of fabric that is too light or, on the other hand, too heavy. You feel like you’re in a woodworking shop. I like function in my kitchen with clean designs—no wild colors or cutesy printed messages. Our elegant Gingham apron, an updated classic, is not a gauzy fashion accessory but rather built to last for real cooks, substantial in terms of fabric weight but not overwhelming. Its wider-than-standard bib provides maximum protection from splatters, and the apron itself is the proper length—just above the knee for me. Some aprons are so short that you end up with flour or hot oil on your pants if you’re not careful! The two wide waist pockets are great for a a cellphone, a timer, a peeler or even a small kitchen towel; for home cooks who like to mark up their recipes, we also added a breast pocket on this apron perfect for storing small items like pens. To keep things neat, this apron’s adjustable neckstrap uses a metal buckle (similar to a guitar strap) and avoids the issue of loose ends.
