"The bravest man in the world is the man who grills wieners on a grill at a nudist camp without an apron" - former nudist camp cook

I have a couple of aprons ... I generally cook in sweats or jeans and a t-shirt and only put the apron on after dressing for dinner to do the dishing up - if it's a fancy dinner. Of course, around here, a fancy dinner might be considered one where you have to wear shoes.

(LOL - actually I have hosted some really formal dinners ...)

I always wear an apron. I recently went through about 10 years of photos, and I can count on one hand where I was not wearing an apron. I probably have about 20, 14 are all the same. They were from a fundraiser.

Nope. I have a couple of "cooking shirts." They are designated for the task. If anything spills on them, so what. It's much easier. I think an apron is great, but just an old shirt is much more practical to me. That way, I don't have to worry if something spatters on the sleeve.

Poor Ginger!!! She'd roll over in her grave if she knew I'd even attempted to dance like her and in heels and backwards? You're a hard task-master, Fred.......ooops, I meant UB..........:):)

yes, I wear aprons when cooking/baking. I went through a phase of making aprons, some really nice bib type, reversible, with two pockets on each side, top stitched all around, including the ties....I still have several..

That's very cool. I wish I could find something that nice. I got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond and it has two pockets on the front but I know it can't be as nice as one hand made.

LCB Paris was co-sponsor of the Masters Diploma Program I took from Universite de Reims, Champagne-Ardennes in 2007. We had our first intensive week of classes there, and cooked on Saturday. They gave us each very impressive certificates of completion.

In 2005 I did a 2-day stage with noted fish chef and instructor, Marc Thivet. WOW, did I have a good time learning more about fish and seafood! Just him, me and a translator! Everyone came in to eat what we made at the end of each day, tho!

As well, I have taken 1-day demo classes there which are available to travelers. If you ever go to Paris, you can take one, two or so... It's lots of fun, and the translators are excellent, so if you are not fluent in French, no matter.
