Cheese Board with a Natural, Rustic Look

Slate Cheese Board

The JK Adams Strata Slate cheese board offers a unique surface for serving cheeses and hors d’oeuvres. With a deep gray color providing a natural and rustic look, it comes equipped with a dust-free chalk pencil for writing labels of the cheese you’re eating right on the board. However, the surface was not the smoothest, which made it something of a challenge to write clearly.

This cheese board is designed for parties: lay out your favorite cheeses and invite friends and family over to enjoy. This is precisely what I did! I paired some of my favorite cheeses — thyme goat cheese, herbed Gouda, Pecorino Romano and a local white cheddar from New York — with herbs, black olives, nuts and crackers. I just used a cheese knife for cutting and organized the cheeses and accompaniments and placed them neatly onto the board. Note that cheeses should be cut on a cutting board, and not the slate.

Now, cheeses need no help in looking appealing, but presenting them on a beautiful slate board made them that much more appealing. Plus, it is very easy to clean. Simply hand wash, rinse and dry. The size of this slate cheese board works very well for those of you who are limited in kitchen space. I was able to store it discreetly in my tiny New York City kitchen.
