Kitchen Couture

Once a fashionista, always a fashionista. But what if you’re a messy, crockpot-wielding fashionista … the kind who can’t keep flour off The Girls while baking, but who’d gladly show them off in a club dress after dinner? That’s exactly the sort of cook that best friends Laura “Barbara” Bennett and Anne Risher aimed to assist with the BarbaraAnne Apron ( With a low back and slimming silhouette, this sexy lil’ black sequined number lets any home entertainer execute a night of Gordon Ramsay-aggressive food prep ditch the grubby apron and put on some instant pretty—just as the guests glide through the door. The wipe-able, launder-able, oh-so-shimmery frock sells for $50. And in its 18 months in the gift-giving world, Bennett says it’s been a favorite for bridal showers (paired with a cookbook) and as a hostess gift (paired, of course, with a bottle of bubbly). For the cook who has everything, or those who like ogling those who do, there’s finally an apron as hot as what’s beneath it. As Gordo would say, “Stunning.”

Banh Mi Burger, Bachi Burger

By Grace Bascos

A hamburger is already pretty good on its own, as is banh mi, the Vietnamese paté and vegetable sandwich served on a baguette. Bachi Burger has combined the two to build a better sandwich. The burger starts with Angus beef, but the Asian flavors enter the blend with ground pork, shrimp and lemongrass, also in the patty. After it’s cooked to medium, the burger is topped with pork paté, herbs and aioli, and served with the traditional Vietnamese accouterment of pickled vegetables, and a dressing of the sweet and spicy fish sauce, nuoc mam.
