These ornaments would be fun for a professional chef, or perhaps someone who aspires to be one, someday!

Did you know...?

The traditional chef's uniform dates back to the 19th century. White was chosen as the official color to represent cleanliness in the kitchen. The chef's hat is known as a "toque blanche", but head coverings have been worn by cooks for centuries (no one wants hair in their food!)

This proud chef is the master of her kitchen in this super-cute ornament!

This funny ornament is perfect for whomever is the master chef/host of your family's Christmas gatherings. It's an old-fashioned stove-top/oven loaded up with holiday meal favorites: a roast turkey, muffins, pie, cake...and mashed potatoes? This one is sure to get a laugh if you gift it to the busy home cook in your life.

Who is the "Top Chef" in your household?

What's so cute about this ornament is the neck "ties" on the apron serve to hang the ornament on your tree! Decorated with glitter, it will sparkle and shine under the tree lights. This apron is well-stocked for cooking with a mitton, spoon, spatula, and whisk accessories.

If those vintage mixers just wasn't doing it for you, check out these two sparkly ornaments! Each features a different style of more modern mixer made of colorful, bright glass. One is a hand mixer, complete with colorful mixing bowl. The other is a large electric stand mixer in brilliant red.

Which does your chef prefer?

A good home chef knows all about the concept of "mise en place" - everything in its place. That means preparing all of your ingredients and keeping them organized and handy before you begin to cook, to make it all go more smoothly in the kitchen. This cute resin ornament is quite large (4"x3") so it will stand out well on your tree. A great gift ornament for the serious home cook.

The cooking principle of "Mise en place" is important in helping to organize both restaurant and home kitchen environments.

Maybe you know someone who is a little "too" obsessed with their slow-cooker and tries to cook everything in it. If so, they should definitely get a kick out of this ornament, made of brilliant, mouth-blown glass.
