Crooked Brook has been chosen by Boston Common Press/America’s Test Kitchen to do the custom embroidery on the aprons for an upcoming promotional giveaway.

Chris Kimball, Boston Common Press founder and “face” of America’s Test Kitchen, is well known for his bow tie and his red bib apron. To give a nod to Kimball’s personal style, a white bow tie and below it, Chris' signature and the words “America’s Test Kitchen / Cook’s Country” will be embroidered on to the center front of the red bib apron.

Crooked Brook will use stock aprons from Port Authority® (Style A500) in 100% cotton red twill with a soil-release finish for added stain protection. The apron also has two waist-level patch pockets and a pen pocket.

About America's Test Kitchen

America's Test Kitchen is a half-hour cooking show distributed to public television stations in the United States, also airing in Canada. The show's host is Cook's Illustrated editor-in-chief Christopher Kimball; the show and the magazine are affiliated, and the magazine's test kitchen facility in Brookline, Massachusetts, is used as a set for the show. It is currently in its twelfth season, and is the most-watched cooking show on public television-up to 2 million viewers watch each episode.

Kimball’s passion for well-made food (and his zeal for didactic details in recipes) is reflected in the magazines, television shows and books that he oversees as the head of the America’s Test Kitchen empire, based in Boston. His official title is founder of Boston Common Press, the company that owns the various media that come out of America’s Test Kitchen. In reality, Kimball is much more than just the founder, serving as hands-on leader and cooking guru/taskmaster to more than three dozen employees who create hundreds of recipes each year.

And to the public, Kimball, sporting a natty bow tie and his signature red apron, is instantly recognizable as the face and voice of the America’s Test Kitchen brand.

Cook's Illustrated's parent company, Boston Common Press, renamed itself America's Test Kitchen in 2004.
