Night & Day
Imagine you're in a country kitchen a hundred years ago. Home-churned butter, resting on a handmade wooden board, awaits fresh-baked bread—or maybe pancakes drenched with maple syrup from out back. Jonathan and Julia Simons' lovely, homey butter board looks just as it would have back then. The timeless, folk art-style moon and stars silhouettes are hand-cut from fine Pennsylvania cherry, a hardwood with handsome color and grain that's durable, smooth, and strong. The distinctive blackened edges and designs, Jonathan and Julia like to say, are "sculpted by fire."
The lightweight cherry wood spreader won't slip out of the butter as it softens, like a heavier, metal knife would. Nor will it crush toast or bread as it glides across it to spread... what? Your choice: dairy butter, vegan versions, soft cheese, nut butters, jam, and dip. Yum. Handmade in Pennsylvania.
