One of the most important tools in every cook’s arsenal is a good quality cutting board. We are proud to carry premium Larch Wood Cutting Boards – the last one you (or your recipient) will ever purchase! We promise. Each Larch Wood premium cutting board, produced in Cape Breton Nova Scotia, is made to last a lifetime and is not only highly functional but also a unique piece of art. These unique boards are fashioned from Larch (also known as Tamarack) which is a wood indigenous to Breton Nova Scotia and known for its antimicrobial properties that neutralize bacteria from raw meat. Made with the end grain, the toughest part of the wood, these boards are self-healing because the wood fibers are placed vertically so that when they are penetrated with a knife they will open up then close up after contact. Each board comes with soft rubber feet attached with stainless steel screws so they don’t slide on the countertop. The feet also prevent moisture from being trapped under the boards and make the cutting boards easier to lift. Properly maintained with a regular application of cutting board conditioner, these cutting bards will last a lifetime. They are truly the best you can buy.
Another important cook’s tool is the knife of course. We are also proud to offer (for 23 years now!) Wusthof Knives. Our own Main Dish Laura Laiben has had her original set of Wusthof knives for over 30 years! We are happy to walk you through the various types of knives and assist you in choosing the knives that specifically suit you. Yes, there is a method for choosing a knife! The basics are a must: a chef knife, a paring knife and a honing steel. Let us give your recipient the edge in the kitchen with premium, high-quality knives.
