Chef Apron Father’s Day Giveaway! 4/16-4/29

Welcome to the Chef Apron Father’s Day Giveaway!
Hosted by: Mixed Bag Mama
Sponsored by: Crooked Brook
Do you have a grill master in your life? Wouldn’t he look spiffy in a brand new chef’s apron from Crooked Brook while cooking out on the grill this summer? Check out the details below and simply use the Giveaway Tools widget for your chance to win 2 of your very own chef aprons!
Memorial Day(Monday, May 26, 2014) is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the last Monday of May in remembrance of the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It is also the unofficial start of the summer. In some parts of the country, it is also the day of the first big barbecue or cookout and more often than not, it will be a male family member or friend manning the grill. What is it with guys, fire and raw meat? A useful and much appreciated gift for any cook or chef is an apron and for that reasonCrooked Brook is sponsoring a Chef Apron Giveaway. This will also make a great Father’s Day gift for dads who like to cook.
Since 1989 Crooked Brook has designed and manufactured chef wear for the world’s most recognized men and women in the noble art and science of gastronomy. All Crooked Brook branded garments and accessories are made to order in the U.S.A and can personalized with the customer’s choice of fabric, pockets, buttons, piping and embroidery.
The giveaway consists of:
Apron Style #700 – 35” W x 25” L (approximately), made in white, 10 oz., 100% cotton denim. Depending on the height of the wearer, this apron is calf length.
Aprons were originally worn as a utilitarian outer garment to cover the front of the body to protect the wearer’s clothes from soiling, wear and tear. Over the years many different styles of aprons evolved depending on the purpose and were often named after the trade, craft or profession that used that particular design.
A chef apron is waist apron which is a square or rectangular piece of fabric that ties around the waist to cover the body from the waist down. For a cleaner look, some chefs fold the top of the apron over the ties (see image). With a pocket (sometimes divided to create a pen pocket) to hold an order pad (dupe pad) it becomes a bistro apron.
These mid-calf length “old school” heavy duty chef aprons are hard to find and coveted by professional chefs and serious cooks alike.

Crooked Brook also makes a
35” W x 25” L apron that is perfect for grill masters who like to wear shorts and cook over an open or pit fire because the length protects bare legs from the heat.
Another good thing about these aprons is that after they are too dingy and beat up to wear in public, you can cut them up into 100% cotton rags.
Cant to wait to see if you won? Receive a 10% discount on all Crooked Brook Chef Wear and Accessories: Aprons, Bib Aprons (blank, printed or embroidered) Women’s Aprons (blank, printed or embroidered) Chef Coats (blank or embroidered) and Women’s Chef Coats (blank or embroidered) from 4/15/14 to 4/29/14 with the Coupon Code “Mixed Bag Mama Chef Apron Giveaway”.
Contest Rules:

· You must be 18 years or older to enter.

· Crooked Brook will ship the prizes to the winner within 30 days of contest end. If address is undeliverable or prize is unclaimed and sent back, winner is responsible for re-shipping charges.

· Physical address required for shipping; no PO boxes, US recipients only residing in one of the 48 contiguous states.
