Pigs make regular kitchen appearances as knickknacks, cutting boards and serving pieces. So imagine serving salumi or chopping vegetables on this slate-colored critter from Epicurean, a Minnesota-based maker of eco-friendly cutting boards.
Made from a wood-based product and food-safe resin, this porcine creation (roughly 11 by 16 inches) is dishwasher safe, knife friendly and certified by the National Sanitary Foundation and the Forest Stewardship Council. It’s $34.95 at Crate & Barrel, www.crateandbarrel.com.
