Ha did she really say dinky cutting boards. Who ever send her the end grain boards that split sure didn’t represent us woodworkers.
I guarantee my end grain maple boards won’t crack from normal washing. If someone wants to cleave meat that’s
Whole different kettle of fish.
I watch that show sometimes they always seem to be fair.

AKguy-
Nice, but what I would like to know is-
What type of cutting board does a person use to prepare MUKTUK?

What’s wrong with fermented seal fat or whatever the hell it is?

Maybe I could send you some. Nothing like first hand experience to answer these kinds of questions.

America’s Test Kitchen tries to be all things to all people. I’ve been watching them since early 2000s, and was a Cook’s Illustrated subscriber back to the ‘90s.

They mean well, but like Consumer Reports don’t often have experts doing the reviews.

In my kitchen, I have an 18” x 24” Boos block that’s 2” thick. It’s too heavy to move for cleaning, so it is the anchor on the counter top. I buy the 15”x 20” plastic boards from Sam’s Club for $9 and use it on top of the Boos block. A sheet of rubber drawer liner keeps it from sliding, and once it’s seen better days, I go spend another $9 to replace it.

Muktuk is most often made from the skin and blubber of the bowhead whale, although the beluga and the narwhal are also used. Usually eaten raw, it is today occasionally finely diced, breaded, deep fried, and served with soy sauce. It is also sometimes pickled.

Kiviak or kiviaq is a traditional wintertime Inuit food from Greenland that is made of little auks (Alle alle) fermented in a seal skin. ... As much air as possible is removed from the seal skin before it is sewn up and sealed with seal fat, which repels flies.

Which would you like to try

I’ve always have people who what to come to Alaska and sleep in my shop. I always say “sure come on up.” And, I have had a few show up, but for some strange reason they only stay for one night. I wonder if it has anything to do with my Muktuk and biscuit breakfast I always serve on the first morning.
