When foodie daughter & her man moved back home, I realised that my two well loved chopping boards are just not enough anymore but I really don't like plastic boards ....
The IKEA lämplig is a large chopping board which is brilliant value & massive enough for general food preparation but it lacks aesthetic appeal for photos
While browsing the Bridport markets I saw these gems on a stall.
The stall owner makes wooden items from trees he sources around the countryside. He told me my two boards came from a aged, fallen oak tree he saw in a field & negotiated a price with the farmer.
I love things with history - the thought of our boards being battered by all sorts of weather for decades then being useful again is a lovely thought.
For now, we are using them for food display & photography & doing the chopping & preparation on the sturdy IKEA slab.
Is this board not a thing of beauty?
What is your preferred choice of boards?
Utilitarian or beauty? Plastic or wood? How do you treat yours?
