Simple pleasures and someone to share them with sustains and nourishes us above all else. A small garden, a little cheese, quince paste, and along with this three or four good friends – such was luxury to Epicurus (Greek philosopher). With this vision in mind we are pleased to offer you this cheese board set. Whether intended as a gift or for yourself we hope that it will help you create good food moments with friends.
This cheese board set includes a cheese board of beautiful Tassie timbers, a cheese knife and a pate knife made from matching timber and a jar of our very own Peppy Quince Paste or Bush Jelly. Also included is a blank gift card. These boards and knives have been made by Hobart local Merv Eaton who has a long career in wood craft and a passion for design and Tassie timbers. I wrote a little about Merv in our blog when he made our pepper grinders earlier in 2020. Since Merv selects every bit of timber he uses and works by hand, every product is a little bit different! Hand made is like that. The cheese board is finished with Rice bran oil – which is food safe. Rice bran oil is readily available from the super market and can be easily reapplied if required.
Choose from (A) small or medium size cheese boards of (B) myrtle or sassafras timber and (C) Peppy Quince Paste or Bush Jelly. Small boards are 24 to 30 cm while medium boards are 30 to 38cm.
Enjoy! That’s the whole idea.
