Kitchenware company, Epicurean recently contacted us about some unique kitchen cutting boards they were supplying. It's in the shape of Arkansas! We were thrilled to take a look at this product and we have some details along with an interview from one of the principals, Blair Grant.
Epicurean recently added an Arkansas-shaped cutting board to its popular State Shaped Cutting Board line. The State Shape boards are made in the U.S. as well. We like the fact they are eco-friendly, dishwasher safe and NSF approved. Epicurean’s cutting boards were born out of excess cut-off skate park materials.
