From Skate Parks to Cutting Boards
What do skateboarders and foodies have in common? They're both cutting it up on the same durable material. In 2003 Epicurean was founded by custom skate park manufacturer TrueRide as a way to repurpose excess skating surface material used by the company. The founders of TrueRide knew of the history of the surface material in commercial kitchens, so creating a line of home food prep surfaces from scrap was as natural as, well, skating on it. TrueRide skate parks last for years outdoors with extensive abuse from both weather and skaters, so you can be sure your Epicurean Cutting Surface can handle even the hardest working kitchen.

Epicurean Wood Fiber Materials
Epicurean cutting surfaces are fabricated using materials that gain their natural look and texture from the organic contents that comprise them. Each color is composed of a set of fiber sources layered together and pressed along with a food safe resin to form a sheet that has unequaled food preparation properties. Each color of Epicurean cutting surfaces has slightly different features based on the blend of its sources, though all of them share the fact that they are a wood fiber kitchen tool that is dishwasher safe.
Use and Care
All Epicurean cutting surfaces offer a durable design that can stand up to the rigorous daily use of any busy kitchen. They all resist staining and offer maintenance-free convenience--no need to oil or bleach. Though stain-resistant, the cutting surface may stain if left in contact with a highly alkaline product or food for a prolonged amount of time. Liver, papaya, and red beets, for example, may leave a mark. To remove stubborn stains, try a non-abrasive household cleaner. All cutting surfaces can be cleaned in the dishwasher, or by hand in the sink with hot soapy water.
