Forget about typical wooden cheeseboards or even cheap plastic ones; instead, I suggest you go for Brooklyn Slate Company's heavy-duty product. A stunning cheeseboard made out of a honking slab of slate, it will add a whole new experience to cheese platter parties, that's for sure.

Co-founded by Brooklyn foodies Kristy Hadeka and Sean Tice, Brooklyn Slate Company uses slate from Hadeka's third-generation family quarry in upstate New York. With the help of an intimate group of craftsmen, Brooklyn Slate Company provides elegant cheeseboards that are uniquely eye-catching.

Aside from the good-looking factor of Brooklyn Slate Company's boards, they are impervious to mold and fungus while also avoiding decay and discoloring. Each board comes with soapstone pencil to label each cheese resting on it.
