‘Fab’ for Dad
This Father’s Day (June 21), why not treat dad to a cutting board or grazing platter that will have him splicing or serving like a master chef?
Fab Slabs is the name of a natural, antibacterial brand of cutting boards and grazing platters made in Australia from sustainable camphor laurel trees. They can be personalized and ordered singly or in sets, with prices ranging from $55 to $205. fabslabscuttingboards.com.au. Courtesy Fab Slab.

A pan to flip for
If you’re like us, your omelets are not always up to chef Gordon Ramsay’s stringent standards. (Indeed, they often look like something he’d be screaming about.) Oren Zroya to the rescue. A private chef for celebrities like Brooke Burke, Shannen Doherty, Mel Gibson, Barbara Streisand and Owen Wilson, Zroya is an avid surfer who, like the bathtub-inspired ancient Greek inventor Archimedes, clearly gets his best ideas in water. In Zroya’s case, the “Eureka!” moment was a pan with a hi-rise lip just like the curl of a wave. The Radical Pan is designed to enable even us to flip omelets, salmon and other foods like a pro. $89 for the 8½-inch pan, $99.99 for the 10-inch pan and $109.99 for the 12-inch pan, radusa.co.

Aura Cacia, an Iowa-based leader in essential oils and aromatherapy products, has started manufacturing a limited-edition four-ounce hand sanitizer, produced in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.
