This is a great platform for getting those cuts of meat just right. One might also use it as a pedestal for cheese, crackers and chorizo. At any rate, it'll come in handy for either prep work or entertaining.Crafted from rich, burnished acacia, Ironwood Gourmet bowls and boards offer the ultimate option in sustainable kitchenwares - and not just because they're nice to look at. True, the deep gold and chocolate hues of acacia bring an incomparable warmth to any table, but the real value is in the tight grain of the wood. It's not only hard and resilient, it naturally resists staining, making it ideal for both cutting and serving everything from meat to bread to salad. If anyone says luxury can't be eco-friendly, they clearly don't know what they're talking about.
