French may be the hardest language to pronounce correctly. I seriously struggled with every single word while I was there, waiters and store staff must have cringed every time I opened my mouth trying to order something or ask where something was. I murdered their beautiful language with my Long Island accent and decided after a few unpleasant looks from locals after my attempt to speak the language of love I would stick to what I knew. Merci, Bonjour, S'il vous Champagne, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and my favorite Fromage. John & I were sooooo excited to overindulge on our favorites while on our trip and were sadly mistaken to find that a lot of places we went to didn't have onion soup or a cheese plate, gasp! I thought those were staples in the French Cuisine??? Perhaps we are just silly tourists and were wanting the American version of all things Parisian. Regardless - lets get back to the cheese. I seriously must have been a mouse in another life because I love it and always go to it for a snack, hence why I will never be a size 2. I decided I would devote an entire post to my beloved fromage and offer some stylish boards to slice yourself some goodness on. Which is your favorite???
slate cheeseboard love the rustic look but not sure about the chalk near my precious cheese
I am seriously in love with these crystal slices of heaven and will need one in every color when I can afford them all one day
perfect for outdoor use to keep the cheese from the elements
who doesn't love white marble - always in style
loving the compact wood cutting board with cheese knives
this custom cheese board cut out into your hometown prides geographical shape or pretty much anything your heart desires. The options are endless and a small heart is placed on the board where you grew up, live or is special to you. I gave this to my mom last year in the shape of Shelter Island with a heart on where our house is & she loved it.
How could I possibly ever leave out something with a monogram!
