Brooklyn, NY
Brooklyn based husband and wife, Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat, made their first cutting boards for their wedding. It is rumored that the groom was actually finishing the boards on the day of the wedding! The two wanted a personalized and sentimental way to display cheese, and came up with state-shaped cutting boards for each of their home states (Michigan and Connecticut), with hearts on their hometowns. Delightfully, the enterprise has grown to include all manner of kitchen tools.
