Hiya folks I need your help. I am looking to buy individual wooden serving boards, not serving platters but boards to serve guests meals on when I have friends/family round for dinner. I'm wanting these to add a wee bit of class to the meals I make when I have people round.

I'm sure you know what I mean, you see on all the cooking programmes and sometimes they serve up their meals on wooden boards, well that's what I want and don't know where to buy them.

I seen those but it's serving boards to use instead of plates, like they do in restraunts when they bring your meal to you on a board or sometimes a piece of slate like they do on saturday kitchen, that's on bbc on staurday mornings

Had a beautiful steak sandwich on a wooden serving board last week at the Pie and Glass gastro pub at South Dalton East Yorkshire and they had them for sale at around 23 each - not cheap but very good quality. Made it taste much better and looked very appealing with salad garnish on it.

I bought some of these from e-bay, but in auction from a private seller, so don't know if you'd get any more that way.

They are larger than A5 size, but smaller than A4. They were called "Continental Breakfast Boards" if that helps your web search.

Hi
I myself was looking for the same thing, luckily there is a joiner/carpenter who has a workshop unit next to where i work, i happened to be talking to him and he let me look round his workshop, i chose some wood, ash as it happens, and he split the block in hald, made it to the hape i wanted,and gave me some oil to seal it, 3 coats, and it looked amazing, we used it on the weekend to serve up sliced beef as a centre peice. I told him he should try making some and putting them on line, if you want to send me an email address i can send you a picture of same, let me know what shap you want and i will see what he says

Really? Well that would be fantastic, my email is ailsa_mcvicar@hotmail.co.uk. Size I'm looking for is individual sizes to serve my guests their meal on instead of a plate, not entirely sure on shape but I like unusual unique designs.
kind regards
a mcvicar

I do like the wooden board idea to lift a dinner party up a notch or two - but not sure about how long they will last once a knife has attacked the surface and they become uncleanable.

It all depends on the wood. A dense, close-grained hardwood will survive much longer.

I have a chopping board bought a decade ago in Papua New Guinea as a tribal souvenir, and it is still amazingly good, even though in daily use and sometimes inadvertently fed to the dishwasher.

However, any wood can degrade rapidly in a dishwasher. My daughter's school carpentry project - a pair of salad spoon and fork - almost dissolved in the dishwasher, and I had to find some tougher wood (Iroko) so she could carve a fresh set. The Iroko is still not as tough as whatever it was they used in PNG.

So manual cleaning is probably best.

I was wanting to know where to get them, not how to clean them and i don't have a dishwasher but thanks anyway

Sorry, I rather missed my own point, which is that, if you don't want to waste your hard-earned, you should not buy just any old wood in the platters.

Isn't serving food on a plank of wood just one step away from those awful pub meals in a basket in the seventies. I'd rather have it on a plate. Wood is porous and a great focus for bacteria. Not a smart idea.

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Nov 2010 17:03:47 GMT
its not a plank of wood, it's a serving board, wood is not porous once treated and you buy the right kind and have you never heard of cleaning!!!!

Hi
you are right of course, once oiled correctly it is fine, and I have not forgotten you. my guy has been so busy on his normal business he has not had to time to make me a sample,which i will oil myself and email you a picture in the next few days, lets see how it looks

Hi Goldilocks,

My board is circular, 300mm (12") in diameter, 30mm (1 1/4") thick, with a rounded groove about 5mm (3/16") wide and about 5mm deep set in about 15mm (5/8") from the edge to catch drips or crumbs.

I sometimes give it a rub down with some Olive Oil to put some life back into it if the dishwasher has been allowed to attack it. (Normally for this kind of wood I would use Scandinavian Oil, but since we eat things that have been chopped on it I thought the Olive Oil might do just as well, and it so far it has.)
