The trend of using cutting boards for serving didn’t start yesterday, and it won’t end anytime soon. However, it still takes a lot of effort to make a perfect serving board and many people don’t do it right. That’s why we decided to share our knowledge and give you five practical tips on how to make an aesthetically pleasing presentation using only food and hardwood cutting boards!
If we disregard their primary purpose, cutting boards are often used as decoration. However, when you combine hardwood cutting boards with food, vegetables, meat, and other salty, sweet, and savory delights, you get the perfect charcuterie that gives you best of both worlds - decoration and practicality. We wouldn’t want to limit you in your charcuterie-creation process, but we would suggest you should use only hardwood cutting boards which will be our next tip. However, we must warn you to avoid serving food on a board you used to cut raw meat. Cross-contamination is a serious issue and should be taken seriously. We recommend you get a separate board for decoration purposes. It will prove to be well worth it; we promise!
Once you get ahold of recent design trends, you’ll learn that only hardwood cutting boards are the proper choice. Make sure to use only hardwood cutting boards since boards made out of maple, cherry and walnut are both kind-on-the-eye and extremely practical. Furthermore, these boards are quite durable, and you won’t have any concerns about toxicity or environmental hazards.
