The cook in your life (whether it's you or someone you love/like) may not realize the importance of a durable, comfortable apron until it's too late. (*Splat!*) Just like hot celebrity chefs such as Curtis Stone, we regular home cooks need protection too when encountering all those hot dishes during the holiday season. You (or your gift-recipient) will be doing a lot of cooking in the coming few weeks, so you could use a fresh apron to keep your clothes from getting all messy. And a stylish apron gets you bonus points once the dinner guests arrive. For female or male masters in the kitchen, consider the pinstripe style which Stone has made so popular. And once you're dressed for the part, whip up some of our Christmas recipes.
