Cutting Boards

Handled Cutting Boards

What’s this pile of curvy, ornate wood planks? They’re cutting boards by Haidee Drew, and each one has an intricate handle that’s sure to dress up every bit of food you prepare and serve. You might recognize a small nod to old silver serving pieces in the design of the handles, and you’d be spot on, as the designer drew her inspiration from the silver collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Shape Boards

Gah! I didn’t think it possible to admire a cutting board so much. This collection of Shape Boards from Bower Studio (also available from Cooper-Hewitt Shop) has my head in a spin. The blank side is for cutting, the (non-toxic) painted side for a decorative twist of a 3D geometric shape. And, get ready for it, Bower Studio also has Shape Mirrors, but that’s for another post (tomorrow).

Rothko Serving Boards

These wooden boards are for serving rather than for cutting, which makes sense once you notice the nicely crafted recessed rectangles (hence the ‘Rothko’) and how well the different sizes would mix and match for an architecturally minimal presentation. Made from sustainable panga panga wood, the Rothko Serving Boards were designed by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune and produced by Botswana furniture maker Peter Mabeo working in collaboration with local artisans.

What is it?

Hmm, what in the world could this small, ramp-like item be? It’s made from natural cork and is about the size of a medium sized notepad (for lack of a better comparison). Any guesses? Pay attention to the incline, ribbing, and bumper at the end… would you be able to store, say, longer, flat things on it somehow?

Complete Carving Set

Vegans, ignore this post. Just skip on down to the next one. Now, omnivores, it’s not even Halloween and here we are talking about Thanksgiving. What gives? Well, it’s better to be prepared and get what you need when it’s in stock than wait until the last minute when it’s all gone. As a case in point, this Complete Carving Set by Joseph Joseph was in stock when I bookmarked it last week, and now it’s not.

However, you can purchase the non-slip, multi-function chopping board (a.k.a. Cut&Carve™ Plus, $18) and the 8” carving knife and a 7.5” carving fork which join neatly together with magnets and store safely inside a protective sheath (a.k.a. Duo™ Carve, $30) separately, or put your name on the waiting list for when the set is back in stock.

Stone Chopping Board

This looks way too nice to use as a chopping board, doesn’t it? White Morwad marble provides a durable surface for dinner prep and serving while the delicate brass saucer is the perfect spot for dips or other special fare. And, if you like the look of the marble and brass, you’ll want to consider the Stone Spice Grinder (shown below) and Stone Pestle And Mortar by Tom Dixon as well.

Teroforma Bread & Butter Boards

If you’re serious about your bread and various spreads, take a look at the Teroforma boards. One is longer, for baguettes and such, the other shorter for regular loaves. A removable soapstone bowl nests into an opening which then serves as a hook or handle for storage or carrying. One side of the board has a sloped ‘well’ that will corral all manner of crackers.

Chisel Boards

Will a small notch out of a nice piece of wood tempt you to spend $120 Canadian dollars? If your answer is no, perhaps you didn’t see how pleasantly multiples fit together. Specifically, how the notches would give an angular feel once set side by side, adding a little geometry to your food presentation. If you couldn’t care less about how your food is presented, then lucky you, no need to spend the money.

Magisso Bamboo Cutting Board

This cutting board has a Z shape to provide two useful functions. The front ridge rests against the edge of the counter to keep the board from sliding forward. The back keeps your knife in place while cutting and may also be used to funnel your chopped veggies into a bowl or pan. And, if that’s not enough for you, that same Z shape allows the board to stand upright as well; that little detail should not to be underestimated if your kitchen lacks storage space. If you still refuse to get excited about a cutting board, there’s a video below for visual stimulation.

100% Grade A Cheese Board

How about a nice slice of Swiss to show off your cheese spread? A composite of acrylic resin and powdered bauxite means the material is similar to marble, so think about chilling it ahead of time to keep your cheeses fresh on the table. If you look closely, you’ll see that one hole goes all the way through for easy hanging. And there’s no worries about bacteria or odors as the board is non-porous.
