Le-Creuset-Chefs-Apron_red.gif Le Creuset Chef's Apron (Red)

Unfortunately this is the last year Le Creuset is making this apron. We bought all they had. Once they are gone, they are gone. Grab one for yourself NOW, before it is too late.

We have never seen a higher quality apron anywhere!!

Mom and dad both have one. I keep 4 in my own personal kitchen: one for me, and 3 for when friends are over cooking and grilling.


  • 100% Cotton Canvas
  • Stain resistant
  • Treated with Teflon Fabric Protector from Dupont
  • Resists ripping and tearing
  • Generous size for maximum protection
  • Fits men and women of all sizes
  • Straps for securely tying apron in place during use
  • Adjustable neck-strap for added comfort
  • Deep front and side pockets
  • Fabric loop to store a hand cloth

The grommets are metal, so you never see the tearing associated with other aprons when you pull the waist strap secure.

The top white strap across the waist is how you wrap it around yourself and tie off. The bottom is already secured in place, creating 4 separate, deep pockets. Plus an extra loop for a dishtowel.

Our favorite apron. Perfect for men and women.

Prices includes FREE SHIPPING to you

1 apron: 31" wide, and 32" bottom to top of neck.

"Acquerello is the Rolls Royce of rice." - Alain Ducasse

"Acquerello is one of the very last authentic products." - Frédy Girardet

Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened, and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family.

It is the ultimate rice: first the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least one year, then it is whitened slowly using "The Helix" where grains rub gently one against the other, and finally it is restored with its most precious element, the embryo or germ. The re-enrichment of the refined rice with its germ restores the most valuable nutrients of brown rice.

Known as the "king" or the "caviar" of Italian rices, Carnaroli is the preferred risotto rice in most regions of Italy. Acquerello Carnaroli rice is classified as "Extra rice" for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in unique enameled tins.

Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto. For instance, Arborio rice is widely available, and sometimes suggested, for risotto. We are not fans of Arborio for risotto. Compared to Arborio, Carnaroli rice has a smaller grain size, and higher starch content. This means Carnaroli can absorb larger amounts of liquid, and thus flavor, from the wine and broth, without overcooking. So your risotto is more flavorful when you use Carnaroli rice. Also, the higher starch content in Carnaroli rice guarantees an ultra-creamy texture that is the hallmark of a superior risotto.

Acquerello's grains stay perfectly intact, absorb flavors exceptionally well, do not bind together, and do not lose starch, proteins, or vitamins. Therefore your risotto is fully consistent, tasty, creamy, and not sticky. Acquerello risotto will always be outstanding.

Acquerello is used in the finest restaurants around the world:

  • The French Laundry, USA (Thomas Keller)
  • Osteria Francescana, Italy (Massimo Bottura)
  • Troisgros, France (Michael Troisgros)
  • The Fat Duck, England (Heston Blumenthal)

The Carnaroli rice cultivated at Colombara, being the only variety sown since 1997, is 100% pure and therefore produces uncontaminated Carnaroli seeds.

Once you have tried it, you will never look back!

Average rating:

The Savini family business is world famous for their truffles. Since the 1920s, the family tradition of handcrafted truffle products has passed down over four generations.

The truffles are individually selected by Luciano and Cristiano Savini. They are personally out with the truffle hunters in the heart of Tuscany so they can guarantee the highest quality and ensure the origin of each and every truffle. The production of truffle products, like this exceptional truffle butter, is then carried out using traditional methods and solely at the request of the importer. This guarantees both the freshness of the product and the 'shelf life'. Every jar shows a "best by" date so you know you are getting the freshest butter available. Large visible pieces of real truffle are in every jar.

  • Start your day off with a perfectly cooked egg and some truffle butter.
  • Put it on hot baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and french fries.
  • Place a spoonful on your hot steak and watch it explode with truffle flavor.
  • A little bit with seared or grilled scallops is otherwordly.
  • Truffle butter for lobster? ABSOLUTELY!
  • Add a heaping teaspoon to your risotto 5 minutes before it is done to make truffle risotto!
  • Toast some bread, spread some truffle butter on it, add a touch of grated parmesan cheese, and serve as an appetizer.
  • Mix together an egg yolk, a teaspoon of truffle butter, copious amounts of grated parmesan cheese, and two teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil as a sauce for pasta.
  • Rub it on a hot ear of corn on the cob.
  • Use it as your butter for popcorn... Truffle popcorn!
  • A perfect dipping sauce for a freshly cooked artichoke.
