My man loves to grill. Like most men, I’m convinced that he gets a secret thrill out of playing with fire and not getting into trouble… ever notice how it’s always the men who offer to lay the fire in the fire pit, light up the grill, or set off fireworks This July 4th, since he was cooking for a large crowd, I got him one of the snazzy new Grill Master kitchen aprons from Valcooks!, pictured. The Grill Master is a multi-colored, checkered cotton apron lined in solid black. Preppy (for me), but manly (for him) at the same time. The apron has a matching chest pocket and – best yet – an incredibly useful swivel hook key/towel chain!
This is a perfect gift for Father’s Day, a birthday, or anytime the man of your house is doing the cooking (sadly, I’m sure it’s not often enough). Retail: $59.00
I was so excited to learn about the new Valcooks! line for men, because of course, Valcooks! is best known for a truly enchanting line of designer hostess aprons. Founded by Valerie Wilson Reed the gorgeous Valcooks! line was inspired, quite simply, by Valerie’s love for cooking and entertaining with flair.
The exquisite kitchen aprons are created from fabrics like silky satins and sparkling organzas – all in luscious colors with billowing, wrap-around, satin sashes and bold ribbon trims like the Dreamsicle apron, pictured. Each elegantly designed and detailed apron is cut generously and provides full coverage.
Valcooks! Designer Hostess Aprons are the glamorous and stylish must-have accessory for every hosting occasion. A Valcooks! Apron – his and hers – will make your next party even more memorable.
So, just who is Val? “I’m a Southern girl with a global palate and enjoy traveling the world searching for new spices and adapting them to my Southern culinary style. Originally a “Southern girl” from Florida, but currently call the Chicago suburbs home. I enjoy sharing my “plum bodacious” cooking with family and friends.”
