Three Food Presentations in Wood Platters

wood party platters by jme and pork shoulder recipe by Chef Peter Hoffman of Savoy

It is probably the sense of comfort that emerges from the wooden tray platters that captures our senses. But whatever is the reason, I know that I have a hard time to resist to pictures like those. Take the party platter of the JME collection. Or how appetizing is the roast pork shoulder served with a garlicky cilantro sauce and grilled summer vegetables?  You can find this recipe by chef Peter Hoffman of NY restaurant Savoy on It was first published on page 113 of Saveur, June-July 2010 issue.

Jen of Simply Photo captured one of the most delightful cheese and pate platters. She photographed it when she ate at Cafe, the restaurant of the Terrain at Styer’s of Glen Mills, PA. You can buy online their artisan bark boards, in a small or a large format.
