Subscriber GIVEAWAY!!!

March 6, 2015

 In honor of all of you joining me in the launch of my new Website, I’ve decided to host an INCREDIBLE giveaway for my subscribers! I want to give you the chance to win something that will not only show my gratitude for having you as a follower, but that could be a serious investment piece in your kitchen.

 If there’s one kitchen tool I use more than any other, it’s my John Boo’s and Co. Cutting Board, and that’s what I will be giving away. An identical board to the one I use at home!

If your not familiar with John Boo’s and Co., you should be! They are: “The number-one supplier of butcher blocks and cutting boards to restaurants, butchers, even the White House. Based in Effingham, Illinois, since 1887, John Boos & Co. provides premium products to home cooks and celebrity chefs.”


 John Boos is certainly one of the best cutting board brands on the market. 

Solid Walnut and reversible, this 24″ x 18″ cutting board is MASSIVE and provides plenty of space for prep and execution.


I use mine as a prep station all the time!


The cutting board is unseasoned, which means you’ll need to use a mineral oil, or John Boos Mystery Oil and Boos Block Cream with Beeswax, before you start slicing and dicing.

After that, it is extremely important to give your cutting board a good oiling on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks depending on your usage. When the cutting board becomes dry and lighter in color, you know that the time has come to re-oil your board.

Once treated properly, you are ready to get cutting!


Contact with my knife is always sturdy and carries through smooth to ensure a seamless and stable cut EVERY time. On top of that, this is one durable board that can take a beating with little to no sign of wear.

 What I am giving away is one truly prestigious piece of equipment, a $200 value, a gorgeous tool to have in any kitchen, and a sincere token of my appreciation.  A truly reliable, durable, and stunning product that will last generations to come.

    Love your videos and blogs, unfortunately, I don’t have a twitter account, but I got couple questions for you. Many people say you have to use different cutting board for raw veggie, raw meat, and cooked food, is that really necessary? And how do you take care of your cutting board? I had a bamboo board (it wasn’t cheap either), and after one year use (I do wash it after every use), I cannot get rid of a awful smell from it. So before I invest in another cutting board, I really want to know how to maintain it. Thank you!
