Borough Kitchen co-founder Justin designed this carving board with furniture maker Orpago. It is made in Devon from a single piece of British olive ash, which is light in tone; each board has unique movements in grain pattern. The tone darkens over time and use, becoming even richer. The construction makes the board extremely stable and made to last a lifetime. It should be stored upright and flat to ensure this stability remains superior over time. It has a thick body (45mm) and is aged naturally for two years, then kiln-dried to remove moisture and maintain stability. The juice groove is deep and collects liquids at a pool on the bottom right of the board, so you can easily pour excess liquids into the sink for easy clean-up. Not only does this carving board look beautiful with a Sunday roast, ready to be portioned at the table, but it can sit on your countertop at all times for daily meal prep. It is not dishwasher-safe.
Why we love it
'I love taking this board right to the table for carving, especially the oversized, as it comfortably holds a large roast. I also like to use the flat side as a serving board for cauliflower cheese and other sides.' –Justin
