When Your Cookbook Matches Your Apron

What could pair better than a cookbook and an apron? We partnered with Hedley and Bennett this week—the Los Angeles-based company that has brought style and thoughtful construction to aprons—for a culinary giveaway.

Their vast selection of aprons means you will undoubtedly find one to match your personality, kitchen, or in this case, your cookbook collection.

To enter, head over to Instagram and follow us (@chroniclebooks) and Hedley and Bennet (@hedleyandbennett), and comment on the contest posts by tagging three friends. Extra entries will be granted to folks who post their own photos, tag us, and use the hashtags #ChronicleKitchen and #ApronSquad by 6/3 at midnight. Now enjoy some drool-worthy pairings!

Plenty + Olive Apron

Chronicle Kitchen

This olive green apron matches wonderfully with the muted background and roasted eggplants of Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi.


Gjelina + Razor Clam Gray Apron


Monochromatic grays featured in the cover of Gjelina go perfectly with this sleek apron.


Huckleberry + Woodstock Apron


Rustic and comforting—just how we like our brunch recipes and our aprons!

and Flour, Too + Mr. Cone Apron


We love Joanne Chang’s cookbooks, and so does Hedley and Bennett founder Ellen!

To get you even more excited for what can happen when aprons and cookbooks collide, here is a brunch menu with recipes from Huckleberry, Flour, and Plenty. Happy cooking (and eating)!
