Food Boards are all the rage right now. While they aren’t really anything new, there are dozens of new cookbooks being released with great ideas for serving in this manner. Fabulous Food Boards!: Simple & Inspiring Recipe Ideas to Share at Every Gathering by Anna Helm Baxter is one of the best, and is filled with dozens of innovative and beautiful ideas for serving.
While these are fancy ways to serve food, the boards are meant to be served immediately, since there is nothing on the boards to keep the food warm. They differ from buffets in that the foods are simply arranged on a board or tray, and don’t take up a lot of room.
While there are several good recipes for items that can go on boards, the main emphasis is on serving as well as ideas for themes to present on the boards. There are dozens of fun ideas in this book, and it’s a fun addition to any cookbook collection. Anyone who likes to serve meals in a unique manner will welcome the fun ideas to serve family and friends. The book includes appetizer boards, main dish boards, salad type boards, and dessert boards. The author says that almost anything can be put on a board and served beautifully. One a reader starts to put a few boards together, the ideas in the book will inspire dozens of other unique ways to serve almost anything.
While this isn’t a must-have cookbook, it has some great ideas that everyone can use.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
