The J.K. Adams Trilogy Collection might sound like the latest sci-fi series, but it's actually a very cool set of cutting boards.
Okay, let me admit this. I have a lot of cutting boards. But ... I use them. Some I use for cutting, some are more often used for photos. I'm not big into set dressing, so when I take photos I like to have different surfaces for the dishes - or the food - to sit on.
These aren't huge boards that you're going to use for carving a turkey - or even a chicken. The largest of the three boards is 9 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches, so they're best suited for bar boards, for cutting small garnishes or small amounts of ... whatever .... or for serving.
I could see setting out one with cheeses, one with meats, and one with other small noshes.
Or use them for display. Right now, mine are on my kitchen counter, looking decorative. They'd also look good in the midst of some cookbooks that you keep in the kitchen.
Heck, even my friends who don't like lots of stuff on their kitchen counters might make an exception for these.
And, this is totally silly, but I even loved the tag that came with the boards. They're secured with a fat rubber band, with a tag that looks like a library card. That'll probably end up being used as a bookmark in one of my real cookbooks.
If you're looking for a gift for a cook who likes to read, check these out.
Who's it for: Cooks who read, or readers who cook.
Pros: Decorative. Nice wood. Great for small tasks.
Cons: Your turkey ain't gonna fit.
Wishes: I hope they come out with an encyclopedia set with a larger cutting board (maybe fish, vegetable and meat books!) and a dictionary chopping block.
