How to Serve Up Your Stinky Cheese

7 Jul

photo(16)I have an affinity for cheese plates. Most weekends (or weekdays for that matter) you can find me at Stinky Brooklyn, BKLYN Larder, or Bedford Cheese Shop, stocking up on fresh hunks of stinky cheese and crunchy crackers. Whether I’m munching on the snack solo or entertaining a group, I like to serve it on something pretty.

That’s why I was thrilled to discover American Stonecraft’s “Food Slabs,” glossy-finished serving stones made from farm-gathered fieldstones. Each piece is unique, and they are handmade (cut and polished) in Massachusetts (my state of birth).

I served my creamy truffle-y cheese and rhubarb graham crackers on my Food Slab, but think it would also make an awesome plate for sushi or cut fruit.

You can buy one here, or at Brooklyn shops like Journey Home or Atmosphere.
