Cut and chop obsessively to your hearts content. John chops often when I cook and we have discussions about the exact size and chopping... diced? julienne? We have actually gotten a ruler out once. OK, so we are both a bit obsessive.
Matt got John is cutting board for his birthday. It is both perfect and hysterical. I see many good chopping days ahead! Link below in case you want to give it to that perfect someone.
