10 Beautiful Cutting Boards

10beautifulcuttingboards
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+}

These really are pretty. But, I have to be honest… Every time I’ve ever come across a beautiful cutting board and contemplated buying it, I’ve put it back on the shelf.

I’d feel a little guilty, as I use it for food-preparation. Like I’m destroying a piece of art or something.

Am I alone, on this?

i felt that way about my ariele piece until i actually started using it. it’s like a new car, once it gets a little ding or scratch you get comfortable and used to it. i love that my cutting board has little nicks and scratches in it now. i clean it well, oil it and it looks better every time.

I’ll keep this in mind, the next time I find myself faced with this decision! Thanks for the feedback, Grace.
