I'm confused. What's the generic term for chopping / bread / cheese / serving / boards? Is it just boards? Surely not. Whatever we call them, I don't have enough.
Lately I've been mentally filling the fictitious open shelves in my kitchen. I've talked a good fight about them, but still not actually done anything about making them real. So for now they live only in my over-active imagination.
Nice boards is something that would be on them. The open shelves that is. And this much is true: you do need different boards for different things. Yes, see above - chopping (meat/veg), bread, cheese and serving.
I definitely don't have any that just look pretty. Certainly nothing that I would serve cheese on to guests at a dinner party. I have a breadboard for um, bread. Another two smaller wooden ones that are both actually a too small to be particularly useful, and two plastic ones used for chopping non bread kind of stuff. See? Not enough.
And now I feel I've also publicly shamed myself with my lack of board prowess. My board collection is clearly seriously lacking and inadequate. And does anyone other than me actually have plastic chopping boards these days? Surely we should all be using beautiful marble boards for everything. I need to bin the plastic, don't I?
These would fix my board woes. I'll have one of each please...
