There is a revolution brewing, a new "old" way of serving food.

Gorgeous rustic wooden food boards are popping up on food blogs and in foodie magazines all over the world.  This is an organic, very old way of serving delicious homemade earthy foods to friends, family and  the best restaurants are joining the revolution.

This beautiful way of presenting food has been around for centuries.  First out of necessity ( not everyone could afford plates) but now out of the  earthy elegance wood board have .  They make your foods look inviting as they overflow on the wood board.

I have used wood boards for many years.  I love the way you can pile your foods together, things that you may never serve on platters just blend on a wood board.

Meats, cheeses, dips, veggies, fruit, olive, oils, herbs, fish, I could go on and on.  There is no limit to the array of treats you can gather to present to your guests or just do a lovely board for two.  It could be as simple as a board with rustic breads, butters and jam for breakfast or as elaborate as a party with boards filled with world cheeses, crackers and assorted dried meats.

You can find fabulous wood boards anywhere.  I have many antique ones and I have gotten a lot at HomeSense.  You can cut one from a good fallen tree, just treat it with some olive oil and you are good to go.

Whether you decide to do this for your party or just for you and a friend, you really must join the rustic board revolution.  Serving and eating from a rustic board makes you relax, talk, eat slower and just really enjoy the meal and the company.
