JUPITER, Fla.-Madeira Housewares, makers of sustainable plantation teak cutting boards and chopping blocks, will debut its Mario Batali collection at the International Home + Housewares Show this week under a new license agreement.

The Mario Batali cutting boards and chopping blocks are fully crafted with Madeira's plantation teak, according to Madeira founder Jason Norcross.  "We're excited that Chef Batali is collaborating on this new collection," he said.

In a statement, Batali said, "These boards are perfect for anyone who wants the highest quality sustainable equipment for each step of creating a meal in their home kitchen.
