Made from a solid piece of maple wood, this style of board is a cherished item in France, and it just might becomes a daily part of your life if you're a big baguette person. The grooves catch crumbs and prevent a crumbly bread explosion on your counter top. The grooves are deep enough to cut at least two loaves on and not have them fill up, while still being shallow enough to clean easily. The board measures 22" long by 5" wide and comes with a leather cord so you can have it handily hanging from your pot rack. It's both pretty to look at and pretty to cut on! Add a J.A. Henckels International Fine Edge Pro 8-inch Stainless-Steel Bread Knife for just $15 to make this an excellent hostess gift.
