Do you wear an apron when you work?

Do you cook?
Yes, my dad is Italian and taught me how to cook at a young age.  If so, what's your favorite thing to cook? I love cooking a low and slow Meat sauce with homemade meatballs.

We were happy to have Andrew come in. It's bad ass to see how other makers rock their aprons! #apronsquad!!
