I cook almost daily and stay in my day clothes when I hit the kitchen in the early evening. I do however pop on a large apron that covers most of the front of my outfit, but leaves my sleeves uncovered. I roll up or scrunch my sleeves to keep them out of the way, and I’m set to chop, pour and stir. With the combination of the large apron and being careful, I rarely stain my clothes while cooking.
I do remove my crisp white Anne Fontaine shirts before I cook because the thought of them being permanently stained with curry or red pasta sauce is nauseating. But that’s the only exception I can think of.
How about you? Do you wear an apron before you cook up a storm, or do you change into clothes that can handle the odd stain. Or do you do neither because you never stain your clothes.
