Slate Cheese Boards and Your Tailgate Party

 

Tailgate parties have been growing in popularity for a good reason. These type of parties take advantage of the environment which provides a good amount of atmosphere to attendees. There are plenty of exciting and wonderful attractions you can choose as long as you have permission to start one. Since tailgate parties works outdoors, it is important for people preparing for them to make the necessary changes in order to suit the setting and theme. Let us look at what role slate cheese boards play with your tailgate parties.

Tailgate parties are not considered to be a fine dining experience as people often tend to choose a much cheaper dinnerware. Plastic and melamine are popular choices because they are lightweight in nature and is also relatively easy to replace making them hassle free to carry around during trips. Even though the dining experience is not as grand as the ones you see in restaurants, you can however add a touch of style and sophistication with your tailgate parties by adding a few little changes on how to prepare your snacks. Adding a medium sized slateplate slate cheese board into the mix can help breathe new life with your parties making them more endearing to look at.

 

Great for Outdoors

 

Cheese boards are compact while at the same time is also relatively sturdy and durable. Even though they are designed with home and kitchen use in mind, their overall structure and composition makes them great for outdoor use. Owners have little to no issue with their slate cheese boards falling on the floor as they tend to survive the fall. Since they are fairly lightweight, you can carry around a number of slate cheese boards at the back of your car.

It should be noted that cheese are not the only food items you can find in cheese boards. Over time, more and more food selections have been integrated with these boards. You will even find grilled meat that goes well with sandwiches. Add toppings such as salsa, chili cream and the likes to add that extra kick with your snacks.

Cheese boards does indeed offer plenty of wonderful and exciting opportunities on how to prepare your tailgate parties. These type of parties take time so it is best that you prepare for them in advance to get the most out of them. Stock up on a few cheese boards especially if you are expecting to accommodate large guests.

And also starts a comic strip for the same in New York Times

London, LDN – June 11, 2017

JR Gowling, the famous author of the fantasy book series Garry Dotter, is launching a new series of fantasy books by the name of ‘Shocking Adventures of Silas Mulock’. The news was released by her PR agent Kurdoch Ivan this morning to the media via a press conference. The same information was posted to all her social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

“The series ‘Shocking Adventures of Silas Mulock’ is about a young boy who was separated from his parents at birth due to a grave tragedy and grew up in an orphanage. Unknown to the boy, his parents were the king and queen of the magical land of Andalusia where they were now held captive by the wizard who defeated them when Silas was born. Silas comes of age at eighteen and accidentally returns to Andalusia to fix things.” explained Ms. Gowling’s publicist.

The news came only a week after JR Gowling announced her recent nuptials to the famous author of the Psychological thrillers ‘Inside the Criminal Mind’ in the English Daily British Times. “My readers wanted to know if marriage was going to deter my writing and delay my much awaited next book. I simply wanted to let them know that it wouldn’t”, said Gowling in an interview.

The first book launches next month, and the publishers and bookstores are already overflowing with pre-bookings for the first copy. “We have been officially assured one million copies, but the considering seven hundred thousand copies have already been pre-booked, we are going to need more”, said the owner of Barnes and Nobles in an interview.

JR Gowling first shot to fame with her Garry Dotter book series. It had been exceptionally hard for Gowling to get published as a female author. Hence she shortened her name from Jenna Roberta Gowling to JR Gowling. Her’s were a path-breaking set of fantasy books. The story of a young wizard who returns to his people to fix the magical world. “Those were the first set of books in this genre. Hence they were met with a lot of controversy and resistance. Piles of my books were burnt as a part of a witch hunt when they first came out. But since then the audience has evolved and so has my writing. They are an all-time bestselling series today. Change always comes at a price.”
