10 Beautiful Cutting Boards

by Grace Bonney

Last year I invested in a beautiful cutting board from Ariele Alasko and it’s been some of the best money I’ve spent in ages. Not only does it get more beautiful with use and a little bit of age on it, but it makes just about any meal, snack or condiment look gorgeous. Simple avocado & egg toasts? Beautiful. Pear cake? Stunning. Figs and ricotta? Ready for a photoshoot. Investing in a beautiful board has made me take my meals more seriously and put more care and time into really appreciating the food I’m about to eat. So I thought I’d round up some other truly beautiful cutting boards, from inexpensive plastic versions to investment-worthy hardwood options. I hope there will be something in here for everyone- your morning toast will thank you. xo, grace {Image above: Lostine cutting boards, $96+}
