“Not only did I want chef coats with a signature style, but I wanted my chef coats made in the USA” - Aaron “Mr. Recipe” Isaacson “Spice Guru to the Chefs”.

“Mr. Recipe,” also known as Aaron Isaacson “Spice Guru to the Chefs,” has recently collaborated with Crooked Brook to design and create custom chef jackets for his public appearances.

Isaacson, a 1983 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has worked at such noted restaurants as the Russian Tea Room, Chef Jean Jacques Rachou's La Côte Basque and Windows on the World, before he built his spice empire. He will be appearing at the National Restaurant Association Show May 5-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

Mr. Recipe and the design team at Crooked Brook decided upon Chef Jacket style M103H, in white 100% cotton seersucker fabric with a placket covering natural river shell buttons, and 3/4-length sleeves with a 1" hem instead of traditional chef cuffs. The Mr. Recipe logo embroidered directly onto the left chest.

Mr. Recipe scours the earth’s most exotic locations in search of premium quality, herbs and spices for his clients who include some of the world’s most recognized chefs: Mario Batali, David Bouley, Tom Colicchio, Christian Delouvrier, Thomas Keller, Emeril Lagasse, Charlie Palmer, Nancy Silverton, Michael White and Jean-Georges Vongerichten (to name a few).
