Gift giving ideas for foodies.
I have to admit…I don’t like to cook, but it is something I need to do on a daily basis. To make the process more doable I like to to pretend I am a chef.
Pretending calls for “props and wardrobe”. Most of us have the props – pots and pans like they use on the Food Network, but what most of don’t have is the wardrobe – this can be easily accomplished by wearing a chef’s coat when you cook.
Instead of an apron that only covers the front of your torso, a chef’s coat covers your arms as well, so no stains on any part of your clothes. I bought mine at a local Uniform and Linen supply. I found them by doing a Google search for “Uniforms in my area”.
It was very inexpensive. I bought the Economy Chef Coat.
You can buy a chef’s coat and then have it embroidered with your name, nickname, or a favorite restaurant at the uniform store or at a local monogram shop.
A Chef’s Coat Makes a Great Gift for Foodie Friends
Chef’s Coats are also make for a unique gift; give it to a friend with their address embroidered on as if it was a restaurant name, Willow Road Bistro or the name of the town they live in.
You can get really creative with what you add to the coat. I replaced the plain white buttons that came on my chef’s coat with silver ones with violet beads. I also added a few decorative buttons along the edge of the pocket to personalize mine.
Cooking… can become a stylish event.
