When Geoffrey Lilge agreed to help outfit Highlands Kitchen, his wife's award-winning restaurant in Edmonton, Canada, he had no idea it would lead to a new career for him. He became obsessed with finding the perfect cutting and charcuterie boards, which eventually led to On Our Table, a collection of handcrafted wooden kitchen objects that Lilge makes in his Alberta woodshop.
Four years of prototyping and restaurant testing, as well as "gluttonous amounts of charcuterie," resulted in a small collection of custom made-to-order boards and kitchen accessories. Every board is made out of FSC-certified walnut and features easy-to-hold oversize handles and a natural oil and beeswax finish. They are created, as Lilge says, "to inspire people to savour every detail when cooking, dining and sharing - bon appetit!"
