Wood is an elegantly simple way to complement your housewares collection. Olive wood is made from the base of the olive fruit tree, which originated on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. This beautiful wood has been used for centuries and is a staple accessory in many kitchens in Italy. Olive wood is naturally hard and dense with a strikingly bold grain perfect for showcasing multiple courses. Here are some ways to use these boards: 

Cooked Meats

The olive wood steak board with juice channel makes for stylish kitchen-to-table service. Meat can transfer directly to the board after cooking. Rested meat can be sliced directly on the board. Any rendered juices from the channel can be reserved for plating. The board, with its natural bark edge finish, doubles as an elegant serving platter.

Meat and Cheese Board

The strength and beauty of an olive wood board makes it a great base for cutting and serving. Select multiple cheese varieties along with smoked meats. Cut several slices and arrange on the cheese board. Provide a small knife for guests to cut more of their favorite selections. 

Hors D’oeuvres

When serving warm hors d’oeuvres use the olive wood steak board with juice channel. Load it up with decadent appetizers such as bacon wrapped brussel sprouts, filet bites, or mini meatballs. The channel will catch any extra liquids. The board also has a spot to nestle a cup for dipping.
