I got this awesome wooden cuttingboard by Epicurean via www.meinhaushalt.ch a really nice online shop that I got to try out. I didnt know about the brand nor the shop before and was really surprised to find out that Epicurean was founded by a custom skate park manufacturer.
I really wanted to switch our plastic cutting boards to wooden ones and I like the fact that this model is available in different sizes and different types of wood. the cutting board in the photo is the smallest one and is made out of walnut. I also found some really cool white plates that I am going to show you soon. stay tuned. X

HISTORY – FROM SKATE PARKS TO CUTTING BOARDS
what do skateboarders and foodies have in common? they’re both cutting it up on the same durable material. in 2003, Epicurean® was founded by custom skate park manufacturer TrueRide® as a way to repurpose excess skating surface material generated during manufacturing. the founders of TrueRide® knew that similar material was being used in commercial kitchens, so creating a line of home food preparation surfaces from the scrap was as natural as, well, skating on it. TrueRide® outdoor skate parks take excessive abuse from both weather and skaters. rest assured, your Epicurean® cutting surfaces and utensils can ride out the most rigorous challenges you can dish up!
