Italian end-grain chopping/carving board 20cm
Superb close-textured chopping boards in high quality hardwood. Grooved on one side for retaining juices and smooth on reverse. Made in Italy by Manzoni Pietro, a family-run company in Bergamo specialising in handmade wood ware.
The Pietro Manzoni & C.snc, Bergamo house specializing in artistic works of wood, can be considered a typical family business: in fact founded in 1955 by Pietro Manzoni; currently is led and managed by the collaboration of three of his eight children, who bought his father's passion and love for woodworking.
Wooden items used for serving or preparing food should be washed under running water. They should never be immersed in water or washed in a dishwasher, as soaking may cause the wood to warp or split. They should be dried immediately with a towel, not left to drain. To maintain the condition of wooden items, a small quantity of edible oil may be rubbed into the wood. Wooden items should be kept away from sources of heat and bright sunlight as these may cause the wood to warp.
