Nature Black Slate Plate
What is Slate?
Slate is considered as the finest grained foliated metamorphic rock. Metamorphic rocks are formed from the change in the form of existing rocks,
a process called metamorphism.
Slate arises from the repetitive layering or foliation of metamorphic rocks, particularly through the low-grade metamorphism of shale or mudstone. It is widely used in building roofs and floors, for it being fireproof and a good electrical insulator. It has also been popular in the use for billiard table tops,
blackboards, tombstones, and commemorative tablets.
It is widely used as a roofing material
because of its low water absorption index of less than 0.4%, making it resistant to frost damage
and breakage secondary to freezing.
Slate is well known for its use as for serving food, but there are many other great uses for this unique natural stone, that makes it the perfect slate cheese board. The reason that slate is widely used for serving
food is three-fold.
First, and most notable, is that the dark color of the natural stone brightens your cheeses and other foods making your dishes or offerings more vibrant and attractive. This is why slate is used in many fine restaurants as a serving plate.
Secondly, despite being so thin, the slate is very strong and is also food safe which together makes it the perfect natural plate. We seal our slate with mineral oil to maintain its deep luster and this also keeps anything from sticking to it making cleanup a breeze.
Lastly, slate works great as a chalkboard so it takes an ordinary serving dish and makes it different and fun.
Slate is very, very old- in fact, most slate is densely compacted volcanic ash! It is fireproof from creation and certain pieces can handle hot temperatures. Because of this, your smaller slate pieces may work great as a trivet (we recommend on sizes 8x8 and smaller).
Be aware, although your slate can handle the heat, it is equally an amazing conductor of that heat - so, therefore, the slate itself will become hot and stay hot for a long time so be careful if using it in this application! That said,
this makes your Slate a great Warmplate to keep food warm on the table. Do not put your slate in the oven or microwave.
Just like its ability to handle intense heat, your Slateplate can handle the intense cold as well. If placed in the refrigerator your slate will stay cool for quite a while, if placed in the freezer your slate will stay cold for a much longer time.
This allows you to effectively serve desserts and other cold items on your slate that you might not otherwise be able to, such as pies, cakes, and tortes.
Just keep in mind if you are serving something that will melt, much like an ice cream cone, you'll want to eat it before it melts too much!
here are a number of restaurants that use Slateplates for serving their customer's meals, desserts, and side dishes. They are especially nice for serving colorful dishes like sushi because they bring out the food's brilliant colors and can keep it chilled at the same time.
Slate plates are food safe, so you can use them to serve just about anything. Pretty much the only thing you can't use them for is dishes with thin sauces since the Slateplates are almost completely flat.
