I am so excited with today’s giveaway. This year I’m partnering with CuttingBoard.com again to give away one (1) Hinoki Sushi Board Tray and one (1) Medium Hinoki Cutting Board to my readers! is giveaway contest is open to US Residents ONLY due to shipping logistics (Sorry!).
Hinoki (檜), or Japanese cypress, is a wood favored by sushi chefs, as it is a softwood that is exceptionally gentle on knives and won’t dull or wear down your blade edge compared to hardwoods such as maple or cherry. In addition, hinoki is naturally rich in organic compounds that are antibacterial and resist mold, which is why it has traditionally been used in food preparation, serving and even used in onsens (Japanese bath houses).
My mom always uses hinoki cutting board and it’s a one of the common material used for cutting boards in Japan. Thanks to CuttingBoard.com, I didn’t have to bring it back in my suitcase and I’ve been using my hinoki cutting board! I absolutely love the smell of hinoki and the feeling of how the knife feels on the cutting board when I cut.
Plus, the weight of the cutting board is so light compared to the same size butcher block made from other wood. Being 5 feet tall, I feel it’s much easier to wash it in the sink and move it around in the kitchen.
