I love the fact that this mango wood bread board is made by a wood polisher in Rajasthan. I love that I can see with absolute clarity who made this board and know that they were paid a fair and just price, and that in buying this I have supported someone and their family whilst also supporting sustainable mango wood production.
We go far beyond just making bread at the Sourdough School we look at everything surrounding the bread. I think perhaps one of the most charming things about this particular breadboard is that it is reflective of our ethics and our values here at the Sourdough School and when you make and serve bread with love and integrity, it stands to good reason that what you serve them on also has that same integrity and connection to the people and the planet that the bread does. So this is the board I serve our bread on. I thought I would share my love of this with you.
I think it is time we rethink not just our bread but everything around the bread and what it really means to bake. It is time we look at what we buy and how we buy it.
Of course this board can be used to serve more than just bread – you can serve pizza, cheese, antipasti and in fact any sweet or savoury dish on here.
Care instructions: to care for your mango wood wash in warm soapy water, rinse and dry immediately. To nourish and protect the natural wood rub linseed into the surface with a cloth.
