Entertaining can be stressful at the holidays, even before you start cooking or the guests arrive. Where did you put that platter last time? How about the serving utensils? Unless you are entertaining every week, chances are it’s been packed away for a while and nothing ever seems to be where it should be when you need it. Wouldn’t it be great if everything could just stay where you need it and with what it belongs with?
There are some products that are newer to the market that are starting to change how you entertain and make the perfect hostess gift for the parties you’re going to. SmartIdeas has created the perfect cutting board for your next cheese board, sushi party and more – their Elite Creations Serving Set. While it’s beautiful on it’s own, this bamboo cutting board holds a secret that makes life easier. The bottom has a removable drawer that hides 6 different cheese knives including a Coure Knife, Cheese Fork, Spreader Knife, Campana Knife, Plane Knife and an Open Blade Knife, plus 6 cocktail forks. All of which are stainless steel and dishwasher safe. The set is beautiful together and makes a statement before you even put food on it.
The bamboo serving board itself will need to be hand washed and oiled occasionally, but the drawer does come out completely for cleaning purposes and you don’t have to worry about crumbs or food getting trapped inside and not being able to clean it. The shape makes the board have easy to switch functions and the wells can easily be used for olives, chopsticks or whatever you don’t want rolling around the board. A simple design, done well – and all adds up to a beautiful gift and serving tray for your next party.
