Amongst my Christmas gifts this year I received two really special chopping boards.
One of them is this lovely item, fashioned in the shape of my blog's trademark chilli:-
If you chop lots of chillis and don't want their taste to taint other food it makes sense to have one of these, because you really can't fail to remember which board is the right one!
This other board is a beauty too. It is made of laminated bamboo wood, which is very strong and reputedly slightly anti-bacterial too:
Take a closer look at the edge - it has been personalised for me!
I think this one may well be used as a prop for some of the food photos I take for this blog...
They are both fab, and completely appropriate for me. Thank you very much to their donors (you know who you are.)
