Chef’s Basic Slate Cheese Board

A set like the Chef’s Basic, which includes a variety of cheese knives, makes a welcome gift, especially with a selection of cheeses. And more especially with a book like The Cheese Board: Collective Works: Bread, Pastry, Cheese, Pizza, from the famous cheese and bread shop in Berkeley, California. (P.S. I once ate 18 of their corn and sour cherry scones on the drive back to LA.)
