It’s no coincidence that cheese connoisseurs and restaurateurs across the UK serve their finest cheeses on slate cheeseboards. Not only does cheese look irresistible on a skilfully crafted slate cheeseboard, its individual flavours are protected too. Slate is non-porous so does not absorb flavours or bacteria, or react to acids. It’s also eco-friendly, being an entirely natural and sustainable material.
Our slate cheeseboards are individually handcrafted by a family business in the heart of Lancashire. They are treated with a ‘food safe’ finish and can be safely washed in hot, soapy water. We also recommend applying a light coat of olive oil to keep the slate looking naturally beautiful.
