The guest plates, the serving bowls, the special occasion wine glasses and the other dinnerware and silverware you use for dinner parties are all on your table. Don't forget to save space for the Berard Olive Wood Cutting Board.

Sure, you can put dinner rolls, bread, biscuits or other foods on a dinner plate or everyday serving dish. But placing them on the Olive Wood Cutting Board adds more than a touch of earthy sophistication to your dinner table display. Its look is so extraordinary that you could center the board on your table surrounded with flickering candles: The soft light will accentuate its rich wood tones and distinctive patterns.

Each Olive Wood Cutting Board measures 8.75 inches by 5.5 inches by .37 inches, so it holds plenty. Yet it isn't so oversize that it hogs needed table space.

Berard ensures each board boasts a striking, individual look—made possible because of the wood sourcing and handcrafting used to produce them.

The company obtains its wood from well-managed timber supplies that are known and legal. It is also Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, which means it is from responsibly and ecologically managed forests. Artisans then carefully handcraft solid wood into cutting boards whose patterns vary with each particular piece.

Of course, you don't have to wait for a dinner party to show off this item's earthy sophistication. Use it to hold cheese and crackers at your next casual get-together or even put it to use as a serving tray for individual size bowls that you've filled with snacks.

Cutting boards were initially intended for use as surfaces on which to slice foods. You can use this item for the same purpose, of course. Its solid surface is hearty enough to cut fruits, veggies, cheeses and other foods. Each board is easy to clean with soap and water and does not absorb odors.

However you choose to use the Berard Olive Wood Cutting Board, you can count on it to add more than a touch of beauty to your surroundings.
