In my kitchen, one of my favorite tools is a little wooden cutting board from Ikea. Less than a foot long, it’s often inconveniently small and yet it’s still the one I reach for first. The wood has aged into silky, well-used patina and it’s just the right size for bread, cheese and fruit. When it finally breaks (there’s a crack on the back that will someday kill this board), I will be sad.
Thanks Embee, I’ll be in touch to hook you up with your prize.
