As an all-round cheese lover and host of cheese parties, a very special parcel arrived for me the other week as part of #MyGiftToYouDay. Inside was a beautifully handmade oak cheese board from the exceptionally talented Whispers of Wood. It was so well packaged and look at the ribbon and tag too, what a lovely touch.
One of the things that impressed me the most was the amazing quality of it. It was clear just how much skill and creativity had gone into making it so beautiful. The handle for a start is ideal for carrying a board full of cheese between rooms… Which is exactly what I had to do recently when we had a friends over for a BBQ. Of course I had to have a cheese board in the evening and show this off!
This isn’t the only thing that the very arty and creative John, owner of Whispers of Wood creates. With a cheeseboard, comes a pretty important need for a knife and you guessed it, the most incredible cheese knives are available in their shop. Honestly, I didn’t even know a wooden knife was really a thing, but they have a satin wood blade and look absolutely stunning! I particularly loved watching a video John had uploaded to show how versatile the knives actually are, using it to cut salad items and even a lime!
This one below is ‘The Classic’ and is yours for only £26. How beautiful does it look!? I also love that it comes in a gift box as a way of presenting it.
Whispers of Wood is also an #SBSwinner, having been recognised by ex. Dragon’s Den, Theo Paphitis. What an achievement and something to definitely shout about! As a result of this, Whispers of Wood will be showcasing their fabulous items as part of the SBS Pavillion in Hall 6, stand 6H80. If you’re there, make sure you pop by and say Hi to John! You can also find him at various Artisan and Makers Markets too.
If you want to be super creative, you could easily create a hamper for a cheese lover, kitted out with a Whispers of Wood cheese board and knife, with the addition of some artisan cheeses and of course some wine! Shopping local and small is easy when you’ve got some creative ideas to work with.
Thank you so much for your kindness and gifting this beautiful board to me. I can assure you it is definitely going to have many different artisan cheeses being featured on it! Plus, it’ll be showcased at our annual festive cheese and wine night too.
What have you got your eye on from Whispers of Wood?
