But it’s only recently that the culinary world has recognised Welsh Slate as an ideal material to grace tables in homes and restaurants around the globe. For millions of years it has withstood all that nature can throw at it, making it ideal for the rigours of the modern kitchen.
It’s dishwasher-friendly as well as oven and microwave safe and light scratches can be rubbed out with a damp cloth. Gently applying a little light cooking oil to the surface burnishes it to a soft gleam. The muted hues of green, grey, red and blue, or richer veins of colour, you’ll see in our slate are naturally colour-fast and will not fade with time.
