“'I definitely think that aprons and chef jackets are a hot trend. People have picked up on the lack of cool clothing for cooks. It’s very utilitarian, but it doesn’t have to be devoid of style and fashion,' Reed said in a phone interview from her studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts."

On coat options for female chefs: “[Baker] is correct, but at least the coats are designed for men! I feel like a square every day because none of them fit…Shannon Reed makes amazing designer coats for women…if I could afford it, I would have a closet full of them. They are so well-made and comfortable.” - Chef Sarah Simmons

Chef Anthony in Utility Apron


The September restart is upon us. Which means the cover goes back on the grill, the cookbooks come off the shelf, and the range starts to look a little less lonely.

Most home cooks need a jump-start to inspire the dreaded nightly supper and the fussy family members around the table. Our approach is to put yourself on the best dressed list . . . for the kitchen, that is. All you need is a serious apron.

When the Cincinnati Food and Wine Classic kicks off on September 12, the Tri-State will get to see why there is so much excitement surrounding Anthony Lamas. He deliciously expresses his Latin heritage in his brand of southern cooking, while staying true to the farm-to-table practice at his restaurant, Seviche

The Lincoln-based clothing designer Shannon Reed has a résumé that includes stints at J.Jill and Sigrid Olsen, but it was her close friendships with chefs like Barbara Lynch and Suzanne Goin (of Lucques, in L.A.) that led to her current business—designing stylish, innovative chef’s coats and aprons. “It felt like all the uniforms these poor chefs were wearing were basically pajamas,” Reed says. “They were just void of style. I have such a passion for food and design that I thought it would be a great marriage.” After founding her company in 2008, she relaunched the business last November—and her wares can now be seen on Lynch, Oleana’s Ana Sortun, and the front-of-house staff at Myers + Chang.

Her latest fan? Menton chef de cuisine—and recent winner of Top Chef: Seattle—Kristen Kish (pictured), who donned a Shannon Reed chef’s coat on the finale of Last Chance Kitchen, an online component of Top Chef. “I love that they are industrial while still being really feminine,” Kish says of the designs. “I think they’re fantastic, and there are so many different options.”
