I’m always on the lookout for new accessories for my kitchen. Being an avid cooker and baker, how I present my food is really important to me. I was delighted when The Just Slate Company sent me one of their beautiful products to review. I love slate kitchen ware but didn’t own any so I was very happy to receive an Oil and Vinegar Dipping Set to try out.
Because my kids can be fussy eaters I’ve recently taken to making buffet style lunches at the weekends. So I’ll fill the table with deli items like olives, cheese and cold meats along with bread and salad and everyone can help themselves to what they want. My new slate tray is perfect for displaying the bread on the table and looks really classy.
The set retails at £30 which I think is about right for a handcrafted UK made item. I would also see these as pieces that would be used for many years so I would be happy to pay a little more for something of good quality that would last.
I was so impressed with the quality of the item, which is absolutely beautifully made. It is made from a robust bit of slate and is thick enough to be hard-wearing. I was really pleased that it also had a foam cushion underneath which will stop it scratching furniture.
The Just Slate Company are based in Scotland and all their products are handcrafted by skilled craftsmen from raw slate. I love this video which I found on their website which shows their beautiful items being made.
The Just Slate Company Website features a fantastic selection of slate seeing items as well as beautiful serving utensils. There are some wonderful gifts ideas for foodie friends or people who are really hard to buy for. So if you’re looking for some last-minute gifts then their website is well worth a look.
