I had lunch in a small eatery today, and noticed a display of nice looking cutting boards that were for sale. I couldn't avoid walking over and examining the cutting boards--fairly small, various shapes, nicely done, made with walnut, cherry and maple. They were priced in the 35 to 50 dollar range. They were made by a person unknown to me and were sold on commission. Each one had an instruction sheet for maintaining the board--hand wash with warm soapy water and dry. Then rejuvenate the finish by wiping with a liberal coat of veggie oil and wiping off the excess.
Should I have warned the cashier that they were selling potentially rancid cutting boards?
