The best butchers’ blocks

10 images

The butcher’s block has always been an essential ingredient of the classic country kitchen, but these days it’s also just as likely to be seen in more contemporary-style settings. From the well worn heavy oak surface of hold, the butcher’s block has evolved into a compact mobile kitchen trolley at one end of the spectrum and a mini kitchen island at the other. All the options include a worktop, various forms of storage (drawers, baskets, shelves and racks) and often castors to boot. Look for smaller slimline designs that you can incorporate into an existing kitchen, or larger versions that you can factor into a new scheme. Let our selection of the latest butcher’s blocks be your starting point.
