Styley Brooklyn Slate Co.

It’s part of the Cheesewhizzes thing, right?
You know we use slate tiles to display the cheeses at each event.
They’re fine, they’re useful, they do the trick.

So when the Brooklyn Slate Company sent us one of their slate trays to check out, well, we were amazed.
Gorgeous quality,
gorgeous packaging and
gorgeous cheeseability.

From their site, “Boards come in red, gray, or black, with your choice of a natural or clean edge. Sourced from our family quarry in upstate New York, each cheese board is packaged in a burlap bag with soapstone chalk and anti-slip padded feet.”

We got a black slate with a natural edge — our recommendation as well — keeps cheeses looking classier than you knew they could.

Hey Dottie, Dottie ohThanks for your patience, Cheesewhizzes, as I learn to integrate my love of cheese with a new baby.

Wanted to give big thanks to Rubicon Estate for hosting the most recent Cheesewhizzes event, “Tales of the Traveling Cheesewhizzes.”  More info on how we put it all together in the next newsletter.
