Recently I was contacted to do a review of any product of my choice from chefsemporium.net. The hardest part was choosing what to do my review on... but once I made my decesion I could not wait to have the product in hand and ready to test.
The website itself is super simple to follow, the prices are all reasonable, and it is incredibly simple to have items personalized! Be it a logo to upload or your name stitched in your favorite color - the site has it all.
So what did I chose? Certainly this was the hardest decision for me, as there were so many items I really wanted to test out. I looked through the knives first (what chef, cook,and foodie alike wouldn't?) , then I took a look over the woman's collection, I even browsed the Kids Cook Too! section because although my little man is only 6 months old, I am already excited to have him in the kitchen with me!
Finally I decided on a Chef's jacket! I needed one for all the events I cater, and what better time in life to get one than now?! So I looked over all my options and went with a classy, 3/4 length sleeve, black button up. It looked like just what I needed.
The email confirmations and shipping went smoothly - I enjoyed being updated on the status of my order. And finally, it arrived! Obviously the minute I realized what I was opening I put my little man down, and tried it on.
The verdict? Well to start, the jacket fit perfectly - it wasn't too snug and was honestly just what you would need in the kitchen. The sleeve length was perfect for when it gets hot and you are flying through the courses behind the scenes, but being 3/4 length means you won't have to stress over rolling the sleeves up or cooking and then down to look presentable and calm outside of the kitchen.
Size wise: The size chart for the website was helpful, although it's a small image on the website if you click on it it will be much easier to read, I would just plan to go one size bigger than you think for piece of mind. I always underestimate my height. I was fortunate to try the small and medium. I normally wear a small, but the medium gave me the maximum fit for comfort and movement.
Having the jacket personalized was clutch! It looks so clean with the basic white stitch on the black jacket (I really considered doing a color but eventually went with classy white).

Well, with my first review in mind, I know the next thing I have to do is test the jacket out in action. The best way - catering an event. Be it a small or large occasion, on the beach or in a home, I know this jacket will be a great fit for both my image, and my job at hand. The type of events I cater range from small corporate events to large scale weddings and meetings. And of course, no matter what the event is, when I'm behind the scenes rocking away with my team, I'll be wearing my new jacket so to stay fresh, crisp, and simple.
Thank you Chef's Emporium for sharing your site and your products with me. I cannot wait to continue wearing this jacket, and looking to your site for more needs to come!
