Pretties for cooks

Bowl from Heath Ceramics
These wide, shallow bowls and platters are used to serve each course at Farmshop in Brentwood. They come from Heath, the Sausalito company that has a store in Los Angeles. Chef Jeff Cerciello favors luscious colors like coral and a blue that showed off the food and felt very special.

Hedley & Bennett apron
Local apron maker Hedley & Bennett’s stylish custom aprons are made with fabrics such as selvedge Japanese denim and Italian chambray. Designer Ellen Bennett offers lots of colors and styles; we’re leaning toward an orange linen kitchen apron that reverses to a cotton stripe.
$45 to $75, (Hedley & Bennett)
Vegetable prints
This set of four hand-printed block prints of Asian vegetables from Berkeley artist Rigel Stuhmiller is inspired by the fresh-picked produce of the world-famous Chino Ranch near San Diego. She also has a lovely 2013 farmers market calendar featuring watercolor illustrations of 75 fruits and vegetables.
$160 for the set of four; $15 for the calendar. Go to and search for drenculture, Stuhmiller’s store. (drenculture /
