When creating my recipes that I pass on to you, my cutting boards log a lot of mileage. I attended a knife skills class at Orange Tree Imports a few weeks ago and fell in love with this Epicurean Cutting Board. The material is what makes this cutting board different from others. It is made from environmentally-friendly, natural wood fiber from certified sustainably managed forests–making it resistant and prohibiting bacterial growth. It’s also maintenance free! This means you don’t need to bleach or oil it. It’s ready to go out of the box.
Not to be outdone, it is manufactured in the US (how’s that for local?). I love that it can be put in the dishwasher and is heat resistant so that it can be used as a trivet. Check out Orange Tree Imports for a great selection!
