Plank it! French Cheeseboard Summer Party Menu


image

Plank it! This is the most fun and innovative way of summer outdoor entertainment dining I have seen in years. Anytime of day or evening, any combination of fruit and cheese, this new concept for dining will make wonderful summer memories of good food, good friends, and good times! ~Amy

Sharing this wonderful new concept with Brooke Walker on NBC’s affiliate KSL’s, Studio 5. A great way to start, is with a beautiful piece of wood. I am showing a gorgeous piece of Black Walnut from Pennsylvania, and a stunning piece of Canary wood from Panama. An unusual and exciting way to set up your summer food table! ~Amy
