Keep Calm and Carry On Apron

Keep Calm and Carry On in the KitchenKeeping Calm and Carrying OnSo, for a week in the Loire Valley, I cooked for 83 people on 4 gas burners (2 of which were rather temperamental), including a vegetarian option! Despite Marvin’s apron of Master Chef (:-)) I was Chief Cook on this trip – responsible for ensuring that the meal was ready roughly on time, enough to go round, and didn’t make anyone sick! Lots of responsibility, eh?

So, before I went, having left my trusty Stork apron at home (it’s all about advertising, baby!), I decided to get a KCCO apron from Barter Books, to remind us every time it looked like the plan wasn’t going to come together… and it always calmed us down, focused us on the task in hand, and we achieved it all! Got plenty of conversations going too, especially with regards to how it would translate from a Biblical perspective.

Apron Review: The apron was good quality, with an extremely handy front pocket (I had it full of cooking notes, tin-openers, pens, etc. most of the week, washed/dried easily (but watch out for the red leakage to begin with), adjustable neck length, and long waist-band. Great!
