Elevate your dinner parties, date night-ins and at-home cooking experience with beautiful charcuterie, chopping and serving boards. Whether you‘re trying to find something for serving or utility — or a little bit of both — we‘ve got you covered in the list below.
From gorgeous serving platters to sturdy butcher‘s blocks, a kitchen can quickly fill up with boards. So here are some versatile options.
A butcher‘s block is essential when it comes to slicing into your meats and produce that are fresh off the grill. This option from Muskoka Woodworking is made out of 100 per cent walnut lumber and is designed to meet the same standard demanded by career butchers. The board features rubber feet which prevents moisture from accumulating underneath the board and ensures no slipping while in use. As an added bonus, this butcher block is handmade in Canada and created from ethically-sourced Canadian lumber.
Crafted with love by Canadian woodworker Crystal, these We Got Wood serving boards are incredibly stunning. To make for the perfect gift — or just a show-stopping entertaining piece for your own collection — you can add a customization, whether it be a name, a logo or something sentimental. The rustic style boards are our favourites and are always a classic, but the options for custom boards are endless.
If you‘re looking for an elegant design, you can never go wrong with a marble board. This one from Pottery Barn is stunning and will elevate your charcuterie and cheese plate that much more with its glass dome addition.
This wooden cheese board and charcuterie tray keeps all your hosting necessities together. The removable magnetic holder keeps four serving knives upright and in place until ready to use. Also included are six sampler forks and two ceramic serving bowls.
Breakfast in bed? Yes, please. This serving tray is perfect for just that — or lazy couch days by the TV. Equipped with folding legs, this tray folds up to take up minimal space when not in use. Made lightweight and with hollowed-out handles, this tray can be used indoors or outdoors and easily transported accordingly.
As a nod to nature, these slabs of wood have been adapted into unique platters, which are handcrafted with durability in mind. Due to the nature of the product, no two slabs are the same, adding a touch of uniqueness to your serving presentation and kitchen.
Making life that much easier, this chopping board comes equipped with a variety of graters and compartments to make your food preparation that much simpler. For the cook who just wants to get it done in the most organized and efficient way, this chopping board is for you.
One cutting board size does not fit all. Lugging out a big board even when you need to chop a few small things feels incredibly unnecessary. Alternatively, trying to slice into a larger item on a smaller board is not a seamless or fun experience.
When you‘re cutting into any meat or vegetables fresh off the heat, chances are there will be at least some juice secretions. The grooves built into these boards are essential to help eliminate spillage — and a lifesaver during grilling season. This beautiful Crate and Barrel walnut option is particularly fantastic due to its reversible design, which allows the plank to function as a sleek serving element, as well as a cutting board.
Handcrafted of acacia, Pottery Barn’s Chateau Wood Collection is inspired by European antiques. The grain serves up major style points, adding a touch of natural beauty to the design. With the resemblance of a pizza paddle, this board would look simply beautiful with a freshly baked pizza served on it! We can see your pizza party coming together now.
