Speaking of which, you do have a cheese knife set to go with your cheese board, right? When choosing a wooden cheese board, it’s important to pick a species that will not absorb flavors easily.

While this is a part of natural aging process of cheese, most of the “pleasant” cheesey aroma is caused by the bacteria and yeast from the fermentation of the milk. So when picking out a wood, a non-porous species is generally best to keep your wood from imparting any unwanted flavors.
Porous woods include walnut and mahogony, so best to avoid these species.
If you must have one of the aforementioned woods (larch for example, makes for a beautiful presentation), it is highly recommended to use both food safe oil and wax on a regular basis to season and seal in the wood to prevent imparting of flavors and smells.
Lastly, one careful point when picking out a cheese board is to ensure that it does not have any lacquer finish or varnish. A marble board, in particular, offers a beautiful and cool surface on which to store cheese and will not absorb smells as easily as wood, though marble is still porous and requires care. Marble or stone cheese boards will provide the best temperature zone for your cheese platter. These are dense materials and retain a large amount of thermal mass for their size. Even better, a clear dome or letting your cheese board sit in an ice bath beforehand will gain approving nods from fellow cheese heads.
Only a few hard cheeses require some effort to cut and for those varieties, is usually requires a mandolin or cheese plane. While stone and marble appear like the top choice, there is still a maintenance issue to be aware of. Marble is porous, as are some types of granite, so it is very possible for your beloved cheese board to emit foul odors if not properly taken care of. A food safe sealer or cleaner is highly recommended, as most typical sealers are not made for marble that will not be touching food. Unlike marble, which is prone to etching from acids (wine, tomato sauce), slate is not as reactive as less prone to discoloration. That said, slate comes in a huge amount of varieties, so not all slate is equal! Did we mention it can also be used as a trivet in a pinch? The only drawback to slate is that it does tend to scratch easily, so scuffs and marks might start showing for your more popular cheese plates.
Glass doesn’t have the thermal mass of marble, so it won’t help cool cheese down on a warm day however (think about how fast a hot cup of coffee will get in a glass cup). Plus, another benefit that glass has over all other cheese boards is that glass is nearly impervious to cuts and scratches from typical kitchen and cheese knives.
After using, your cheese boards should be scrubbed with hot soap and water and then wiped immediately dry. Wood boards should be oiled and waxed and marble boards should be sealed each month. Using the inner side of the lemon, rub the salt into the wood, scrubbing in circles.
Rinse with warm water after you’re done, and dry immediately. For polished marble, do not use the formula above (as well as any commercial solutions that use acidic compounds such as vinegar or lemon juice) as it will etch your marble and take away the polish.
