Is marble a good charcuterie board?

Marble serving boards not only look beautiful, they have practical uses too. It's not for aesthetics that marble kitchen counters have been used by bakers for centuries. It's because marble keeps dough and pastry cool while it's being rolled out. This is one of the reasons marble serving boards are popular for cheeses, charcuterie and other foodstuffs.

'Marble has natural cooling properties, which means it can keep your cheese cool for longer,' say the experts at Inox Artisans. 'This is important because cheese tastes better when it is served at the right temperature. Plus, marble serving boards can be used to display other foods such as cold meats, fruits, chocolates, and pastries.'
