I love our cutting boards. There was a quite a long period of time where we owned 2 extremely old, beat-up, purchased at a thrift store boards that were down right embarrassing. So this year I made it my mission to acquire several nice boards for Matt. I’ve been asked a couple of times about them, so here they are.
This one sits on our counter and is Matt’s go-to board. I like it to serve meat and veggies on for parties. It was extremely affordable, for a piece of functional art, from Red Onion Works. We got size large, not thick cut – it works perfectly. If you’re interested in Camille’s work, she’s doing a GIVEAWAY right now at Jenny N Design’s blog.
This one is my go-to board. I won it through a giveaway at Elana’s Pantry, so I think of her every time I use it. I find it to be perfectly flush and stable, and I like the way the knife feels on the bamboo.
I purchased this lovely board with “meat moat” through One Kings Lane, with a bamboo utensil set, for one of Matt’s holiday gifts. That site is like Haute Look and Zulily with great daily deals – gotta shop smart! He also got a really nice knife set, so all together we now have a nice board to cut juicy meat on.
I feel like our cutting boards are really nicely rounded out in terms of type, that we have just the right amount (between the 3 boards, 2 sides and 1 of the old, crusty ones we saved for cutting beets and other yickies on). I will say, if you enjoy food, if you enjoy cooking or baking – you deserve to have some quality materials to work with. Not just food – but the products you use as well. I only spent $75 on these 3 boards (got lucky on one!) so it’s totally feasible to buy yourself one or two, spread over a couple months, if your money is tight.
