Different ways to use a wooden cheese board

If you are a cheese lover, wooden cheese boards are wonderful for displaying and serving cheeses and accompanying food and they look fantastic in your kitchen or on your dining room table. But if you feel creative, there are a range of different  ways to use your wooden board

One popular way to use a cheese board is as a charcuterie board, a platter that will typically include a variety of meats, cheeses, fruits and crackers.  If this is something that appeals, makes sure you choose a variety of flavours and textures in what you have on the board.

Also, add some fruit and nuts, these balance out the salty flavours of meats and cheeses, Grapes, figs and almonds are great options for this. Arrange your meats, cheeses, fruits and nuts on the wood cheese board to create a stunning centerpiece for your table. The natural warmth and textures of the wood will add to your display.

Another great way to use a wood cheese board is as a serving board. Whether you're serving appetizers or desserts, a wood cheese board can be a stylish and functional serving option. Here are some tips for using a wood cheese board as a serving board:

Things to think about are choosing the right size board for the food you are serving, a large board can have several dishes on, while a smaller board probably suits individual servings better.

Consider mixing and matching, putting both sweet and savoury items on the board, to create contrasts in taste and colour.

To give extra flair, add some garnishes, fresh herbs, edible flowers, colourful fruits can all be used to add pops of colour and flavour.

Using Wooden Cheese Boards as Display Boards is another option. The rich colours of your wooden board can showcase things like favourite jewellery pieces or decorative items.

Make sure you think about height and having items that are different heights to add contrast and draw the eye to different areas on the display board.

Or you may want to use the wooden cheese board as part of your kitchen décor, hanging it on a wall where the texture and grains add lustre and colour.

Whatever you choose to do, don’t be confined to thinking of your beautiful board as having just one function. Let your imagination and creativity enrich the ways it can be used in your kitchen and dining room.
