It's true! Our apron lady is about to hit the road with Jeni Britton-Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams! Starting Monday, October 24th in Columbus, Ohio, they'll be making their way south, dishing out hugs, aprons, and ice cream for all!
We LOVE celebrating... If you've seen our Instagram Story, you probably know this by now. Birthdays, restaurant openings, book launches, Tuesdays... whatever it is, we love a reason to spread positivity and joy. So Halloween is definitely one of our FAVORITE holidays! The colors, the happiness, the candy!
As you probably know by now, we're celebrating makers all month long! It just so happens we also have a new product release pairing up with this week's Maker! Robert Siegel of Robert Siegel Studio is a ceramicist whose studio is just down the street from Apron HQ on Hill st.! His handmade creations are awesome and we have quite a few of them here at HQ, available for purchase.
Have you ever had a meal that was so completely enjoyable, it haunted you for days? Enter Destroyer.
Chef Jordan Kahn’s Destroyer is his foray back into the LA dining scene following his previous restaurant, Red Medicine. He has an excellent resume to his name: French Laundry, Alinea, Per Se, and Michael Mina are all under his belt.
Earlier this year, I met Jordan at our HQ and eagerly tried to chat him up but didn’t get anywhere. I made several attemps and quickly realized that he was not there to hang out and he is a very focused individual. It wasn't until he came to cook lunch for the crew at Apron HQ, when asked about the dish and its ingredients, that he seemed to come to life and open up. That is when I realized it was time for me to shut up and eat, because on the plate in front of me was everything he wanted to say.
We're continuing with our #HBMakerSeries this month and next up, we have Ibi Yoo, of Awesome Candle. She works with premium fragrance oils and quality soy wax to create some amaaaazing scent combinations including an #apronsquad staff fave: basil + cotton candy and a #dailycortado inspired coffee candle that was a result of a collaboration with Float Pasadena. We love seeing how different makers of all kinds use our aprons out in the world!
