About Michelle: Michelle Starbuck, of Michelle Starbuck Designs, is a jeweler, painter, and all around creative person. She began her design business in 2005 to meet a need for affordable and unique handmade jewelry. Her focus on organic and geometric design in her work extends to all areas of her life which is why she is drawn to our teak wood cutting boards in the kitchen. A little known secret of Michelle’s is that she is also a talented chef. She frequently posts pictures of her farmers market finds, and her culinary creations on her Instigram account (MichelleStarbuckDesigns), lets see what she is chopping this week……
What is Michelle Chopping?
Michelle has our 106 Edge Grain cutting board, yes, the one featured in Cooks Illustrated as “the last cutting board you’ll ever need.” It is the perfect size for her Chicago style kitchen.
Michelle adds Spinach to all of her home made pizzas, just toss it on for the last 5 minutes for a delicious treat. For salads & other meals that require a lot of chopping, try adding a smaller board to complement the stationary chopping block. Transporting veggies is quick and easy with our smaller edge grain boards.
A master of left overs, Michelle can turn yesterdays left over chicken into an entirely new meal. The 106 was designed with the input of chefs, who requested that it be spacious enough to accommodate all of their ingredients.
For dessert, we have another fan of Strawberry short cake. The difference between mine and hers: she whipped the cream by hand.
