The benefit of the Slate Cheese Board:
Nice contrast: Dark color of slate board gives a really nice contrast to the light color cheese and crackers.
Much more enticing than compared to wooden cutting board or marble cheese board that have a similar light color.
With a slate board, you can easily use a white chalk to write messages, name of food, and doodle artwork.
Easy to clean and light weight
It’s easy to clean and lighter than wooden or marble cheese boards in case you plan to cheese board to a party.
You can even put the finished cheese board in the refrigerator as it doesn’t take up much space compared to the wooden or marble cheese board
How To Assemble A Charcuterie Board:
Start with the board. Cheese boards are typically assembled on a slate or wooden tray, which may be square, rectangular, or round. But if you don't already own one, don't feel like you need to go out and buy one. You can also use a plate, a cutting board, or even a baking sheet. Any flat surface will work.
Select the cheeses. Try to include a variety of flavors and textures by selecting cheeses from different families (see below).
Add some charcuterie...aka cured meats. Prosciutto, salami, sopressata, chorizo, or mortadella are all good options.
Add some savory. Think olives, pickles, roasted peppers, artichokes, tapenades, almonds, cashews, or spicy mustards.
Add some sweet. Think seasonal and dried fruits, candied nuts, preserves, honey, chutney, or even chocolate.
Offer a variety of breads. Sliced baguette, bread sticks, and a variety of crackers in different shapes, sizes, and flavors.
Finish it off with some garnishes. This is a great way to give your cheese board a seasonal touch. Use edible flowers, fresh herbs, or additional fruits to give your board the look and feel you want.
