Fab Slabs.jpg

While beautiful to look at, Fab Slab cutting boards are antibacterial, too.

Food safety is always important, but even more so now when we’re all trying to stay healthy in the face of COVID-19.

Last Christmas, my friend, Laloni Parks, gave me a Fab Slab, a beautiful cutting board made from the camphor laurel tree that grows in Australia. It’s so pretty that I haven’t used it as a cutting board. Instead, I’ve served cheeses, crackers and more on it.
