Platters & Boards Cookbook -Here is a very beautifully produced book on heavy paper stock with high-end photo reproduction and stunning food styling and food photography. Yet Platters and Boards is not for the average home cook unless left on the coffee table for display. Shelly Westerhausen has written this niche cookbook for those home cooks who love to give high-end parties and for caterers. Westerhausen has very specific food presentation in mind: displaying foods on platters, boards, or on both. Preparation of her recipes will also take time. For example, for preparing a sundae spread she asks for twenty ingredients.

Platters & Boards Cookbook
One of the crucial elements of a party is the cheese plate. It greets visitors when they enter your home, laid out invitingly on the dinner table alongside a bottle of wine, and is the first sign that your party is going to be a success. If the cheese board is a hit, your status as a certified host or hostess will be solidified in the party pantheon, alongside Jackie Onassis and Perle Mesta. No pressure right? Wood is porous, too, but well-cleaned and oiled boards will work great. This round version features sections for the different items on your cheese board, from the cheeses themselves to meats, nuts, and jams, and a pull out drawer for your knives:. Prepare your cheese then place it on your board to prevent scratching and staining it.

Shelly Westerhausen's Platters and Boards cookbook is filled with beautiful, creative trays and boards laden with goodies for sharing with groups large and small. Her ideas and recipes--for themed occasions, seasonal spreads, or anytime you want a break from traditional cheese and crackers--are an easy-to-follow road map for putting out an impressive spread without assembling crostini bites before guests arrive. With Easter coming up fast, we asked Westerhausen what platter or board she would suggest, and that turned out to be The Deviled Egg Platter. There are three different varieties of eggs here, plus additional garnishes, and as you can see the finished result looks amazing. Below, Westerhausen shares her thoughts on serving this platter for Easter, along with the recipes and how-to from Platters and Boards so you can create one for your holiday celebration, or anytime--deviled eggs are always the first to go! Nothing feels more quintessential Easter than deviled eggs. I always remember being amazed, as the delicious transition only took a few hours to happen.
