Serve it Cool: Chilled Platters

Serve it Cool: Chilled Platters

We always see heated servers for hot dishes, from plug-in electrical devices to votive-heated warming trays. But what about serving up chilled dishes on something cold during a hot-weather party? Here's an idea:

Chill marble slabs in the refrigerator prior to serving. This can be done for veggies, cheeses, fruits, desserts, drinks. It'll keep cold things even colder, will look great, and will inject a little extra relief from the heat. Shown here is a discontinued marble serving slab from CB2, but you could do this with any marble or stone cutting board, serving platter, or even 12x12-inch tile.
