Rectangular Walnut and Sycamore Board
Two hues are better than one.
At Food52, wood can be found all over our kitchen—it forms our bowls, keeps our cutting boards safe from harmful bacteria, and provides a beautiful surface for serving and chopping. This two-toned wooden cutting board, handmade in New Jersey, pairs walnut and sycamore woods. Its maker says, "I wanted to show off the natural beauty of the wood itself so I made something that isn't intricate or flashy, but utilitarian." The result is a piece that will fit beautifully into any kitchen as a special occasion serving platter or a daily chopping block.

Our Tips & Stories
How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
We're calling it saucepan-pourri.
If you can make room in your heart (and your fridge) for this method, your salad greens will last weeks (!) longer than they do now.
August heat, be damned!
