Who: Core Bamboo – New York, NY
What: Bamboo Color Board & Utensils
Why We Love ‘Em: Nothing like a little pop up color to liven up your chef time, and Core Bamboo’s collection of colorful wares does not disappoint. The good news is that you don’t have to choose just one accent color. Opt for a monochromatic look or have fun mixing and matching bright teal, lime, mandarin, banana, onyx, or magenta. The color board itself is beautiful exposing the rich grains of the bamboo contrasted with a bold band of color. It was so beautiful, we found ourselves a bit hesitant to make the first cut which led to the discovery that in addition to a seriously durable cutting board, it makes for a great laptop surface too–bonus!
While you are flipping, chopping, or stirring, you’ll be happy to note that Core Bamboo’s products are crafted with 100 percent organically grown bamboo and finished with FDA-approved food safe, water based adhesives and natural oil finishes–even the lacquers used come from natural cashew trees–brilliant! Oh yes, and bamboo is naturally anti-microbial so it’s a safer choice for the kitchen where germs abound.
