A high-tech chopping board featuring a TV screen could turn kitchen duffers into Delia Smiths and Mary Berrys by live-streaming cooking lessons.
Called the Blok, the device allows wannabe cooks to connect with professional chefs who will guide them through gourmet recipes.
Costing £580, the walnut chopping boards come with a removable digital display, which is waterproof and scratch-resistant so it can be cleaned after cooking.
Users log into a mobile phone app which, at a further cost of £33 a month, allows them to sign up to cooking classes.

The Blok then streams the classes on the board’s display so that cooks can follow the instructions without taking their eyes off their knives as they prepare the food.
Users can also invite family and friends to take the class at the same time. The Blok even plays music during the lessons.
Showing off the product in Las Vegas, the manufacturers said the gadget was available to order in the UK.
Tony Frick, co-founder of Blok, said he hoped his invention would be the cooking version of Peloton, the virtual spinning class company that became a billion-dollar hit during the pandemic.
‘We’re looking to create a digital cooking experience where you can cook great meals with your friends and top chefs,’ he said.
‘This isn’t MasterChef – we don’t want you spending two hours cooking something super-complicated. The aim is for people to have fun and enjoy cooking.’
