The Romeo & Julienne Cutting Board Perpetual Kid

The Joy of Cooking and other classic cookbooks are definitely on the shelf in my kitchen. With the Romeo & Julienne Cutting Board, I've had the opportunity to add another classic to my kitchen collection. Shaped like a book, with the words "Romeo & Julienne" on the spine, this cutting board is a stylish touch and can fit on your bookshelf along with your cookbooks. It is made from hard beech wood and preseasoned with mineral oil, making it ready to use from the start. The cutting board is relatively small, 6 inches by 9.5 inches, but it's perfectly usable. Aside from the benefit of easy storage, the Romeo & Julienne Cutting Board requires only minimal counter space.

The Romeo & Julienne Cutting Board is made by Atypyk Paris, a Paris-based design firm known for their thought-provoking kitchenware. It's priced at $11.99. It makes for a charming gift, especially for a Shakespeare buff. While the cutting board isn't dishwasher-safe, it is fully functional and can even be used as a serving piece after you've finished cutting up a few fresh vegetables or a lemon for drinks. Either way, you're bound to get a few comments on having Shakespeare in your kitchen.
