5 Perfect Recipes for the Holidays

It’s the greatest time of year, and it’s all because of the…presents? The weather? The holiday movie specials on television? No, it’s pretty much all about the food. Picture a toasty evening by the fire, everyone is huddled up listening to the soft snow brushing up against the window, the eggnog has made its way into your belly, and the sleepiness after a good meal is starting to kick in. Best feeling ever.

When on the computer there arose such a clatter,

I ran in my chef coat (which was covered with spatter).

Away to ChefUniforms.com I flew like a flash,

And bought a new chef coat while saving some cash!

The website has chef coats and chef pants galore,

And an assistant to find what you’re looking for.

They’ve got aprons, hats and shoes for your feet,

Happy Holidays to all, and to all “Bon Appétit”!
