Perfect Combo - Slate and Wood Serveware by Judge

Now I do love a nice bit of real slate so I'm quite excited about the new Slate and Wood serveware collection from Judge Cookware.  Altogether there are 8 pieces in the collection; 5 Platters, a Lazy Susan, a Cheeseboard with Cloche and a Cheeseboard and Knife Set.

The platters and lazy Susan are great for displaying tasty nibbles for sharing such as my Goats Cheese Mini Tarts; some with Roasted Peppers and the rest with Caramelised Red Onion.

Goats Cheese

No proper recipe for these as they are so simple to make.  Just cut circles out of ready rolled shortcrust pastry and put them into a Yorkshire Pudding or Muffin Tin - this will give them a little bit of curved shape to enable a filling to be added later on.  Bake in the oven 200C 400F or Gas 6 for about 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and top with a small amount of soft goats cheese then add caramelised onions or roasted peppers (the peppers I used come in a jar) just drain them from their oil.  Pop the tarts back into the oven for a further 4 to 5 minutes to heat through.

Acacia hardwood and slate go perfectly together and provide the perfect surface for both hot and cold foods. This Serving Platter is 45cm x 25cm so it's a good size.  There are other platters available that are larger or smaller than this one so you are bound to find one that suits your needs.  Also if you have any weddings coming up any one of these would make a really nice present.

The collection is not suitable for the dishwasher; to keep it looking good Judge advise washing by hand.  The slate is removable from the wood part so this makes cleaning really easy. Thought I'd point that out because years ago I made a mistake of buying a cheeseboard (not from Judge by the way) only to find that the food part couldn't be removed from the base so couldn't actually be washed properly; which of course is never going to be a good thing.

Here's a list of the prices which I think are excellent value for money.

Although there is a Cheese Board available, you can of course use one of the platters for cheese as I do.
