More and More Women are Tied to the Apron Strings

Fabulous Paz from The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz shows off her apron.
If you consider the way food and fashions are a reflection of culture, then perhaps trends spotted on food and craft blogs signal real changes in society. So, what do you make of the huge number of blogs that have been writing about aprons?
My noticing of aprons started with Paz (pictured) modeling her new apron. I remember how my mother always wore an apron when she cooked and pondered why I never even thought of wearing one. Turns out I wasn't the only passionate cook who hadn't previously embraced aprons. Consider these thoughts from Ilva, a Swedish woman living in Tuscany, who produces such beautiful photos of her food at Lucullian Delights.
At Tigers and Strawberries, culinary school graduate Barbara has won awards for her writing, and she explores her feelings about aprons in Aprons Come Out of the Closet. Barbara notes that even main-stream media writers are proclaiming that Aprons are Trendy.
There's an apron for every personality type. Dustpan Alley blogs about a unique Peace Apron. At Scrambled Cake, Kim finds an apron that matches her blog. Splendid Things makes a darling apron for her daughter to wear on Apron Day. If you're tired of your current apron, you can join One Hour Craft for an Apron Swap. And don't forget that the day after Mother's Day is National Wear Your Apron Day.
Maybe it's time for me to reconsider my current apron apathy. How do you feel about aprons?
Food Editor Kalyn Denny also blogs at Kalyn's Kitchen. Kalyn has several aprons, most of them received as gifts from students, and she is currently considering wearing one.
