I use cutting boards for preparing ingredients, cutting bread, serving cheese, and styling photographs. Here are two of my favorite boards.
The cutting board on the left is a French antique I purchased from Jayson Home & Garden in Chicago. When I found the board it needed a good cleaning and a coat of beeswax salve. I love the patina of this board and I plan to use it often to style food photographs for Alice and Waldo.
The cutting board on the right is my new favorite. In fact, it is called the “favourite board”. I purchased this cutting board from Herriott Grace, a brand designed by the Canadian father and daughter team of Lance and Nikole Herriott. The board is handcrafted from maple with black details and the small size is perfect for serving a snack.
The beeswax salve I use to condition my boards is handmade by Herriott Grace.
