Perhaps one of the most under-appreciated tools in the modern kitchen is the cutting board: ubiquitous and used on a daily basis, but definitely taken for granted. All you need is a piece of wood, glass, or plastic that you can cut your meat, fish, vegetables, or fruit on, and you’re all set, right?
Well, in a sense, I suppose that’s true. But where does creativity and ingenuity come into play? Although it most certainly will get the job done, a cutting board doesn’t have to be a boring rectangular piece of unremarkable utilitarianism.
