AS YOU slide your hand along the board, you’re taken with the beautiful colours and fragrance of the timber.
The meal creation possibilities will be endless.
This was just part of the attraction for Australian Cutting Boards’ Fiona Garrett and Stuart Wilson when they initially began their range.
Adding to that was the fact the boards developed as a recyclable product from a tree that was an introduced pest.
Not one to think in mere squares anymore, and Fiona said the popularity of their range had developed because they appreciated that customers were looking for random shapes and sizes.
“We picked cutting boards for our range because basically everyone needs a cutting board and from our personal experience using plastic or glass, we found that camphor laurel was the best for any household due to its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities,” she said. “We are proud of how popular our range has become from the very small board for travellers to the very large and everything in between.”
Given their anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities, Australian Cutting Boards not only have been showcased at the markets but also in butcher shops, used for cooking demonstrations at shows and often by restaurants to serve meals due to their attractive design.
Fiona enjoys the chance to meet new people locally and from around the world at her Eumundi Markets stall.
“It is nice to know that sometimes we are sending an Australian-made product to all corners of the globe because the Original Eumundi Markets is so unique and truly embraces Australian-made products made by most of the stallholders,” she said.
“We love having a 100% Australian made product that we can offer to the world and have also added to our lines with new laser engraving designs, hand carved bowls and CNC creative designs.”
