Once upon a time in Tuscany there was a mighty frost that killed many old olive trees. A father and his two sons were grieved by the sight and started turning the tree trunks – some of them 300 years old - into beautiful wooden objects like these cheese or chopping boards. Sold by weight, they are all unique which always makes for a wonderful present. And this is a very useable one too! They will last a lifetime if occasionally coated with virgin olive oil.
