Disclosure: I received a complimentary cutting board from Edwards Crossroads in exchange for a post. All opinions are my own.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The weather is cooling off, the leaves are changing, and the holidays are just around the corner. This season of the year is also the prime time for hosting family, friends, and other company at parties and gatherings. No matter if it is a fancy dinner party or just an informal gathering, it is almost certain that appetizers will also be a big part of being a good host. Finger foods help keep dinner guests at bay while the rest of the meal is being prepared, and they are also a good way to start conversation.
We recently hosted some family that arrived a few days before Thanksgiving, and we wanted to practice some of our hosting skills on family! My husband wanted to practice his barbecue know-how on critics that wouldn’t be too harsh, so he fired up his barbecue pit and smoked a small pork loin and some hot-link sausages. After smoking these savory meats, my husband wanted to feature these delicious hors d’oeuvres on a bold, natural display.
He immediately reached for his Edwards Crossroads cutting board to cut and then showcase the smoked meats. Our family recently received our Edwards Crossroads cutting board as a gift, and it was the perfect utensil for cutting these tidbits. The dark natural color of the walnut cutting board made the pork tenderloin stand out, and the smoked hot links paired perfectly with cheese and crackers for tasty pre-dinner treats.
Cutting boards are just part of what Edwards Crossroads has to offer. Besides the black walnut cutting board, Edwards Crossroads also offers lighter shades of wood with Maple and Cypress cutting boards. Additionally, Edwards Crossroads offers other rustic products such as serving boards, knives, and coasters and they even offer custom engraving and gift wrapping! These home and kitchen items would make perfect gifts for Christmas, and spark the conversation at holiday dinner parties.
