You may have seen a lot of cooking shows in the past few years and if you look closely you will see most of the well renowned chefs using wooden cutting boards (also known as timber cutting boards, wooden chopping boards, bread boards etc). We have steered away from calling them bread boards as this leads people to believe you can only cut bread on them which just isn’t correct.
