Stone gets cold - and retains that cold ... good for pastry (ideal for pie crusts and butter cookies) and candies where keeping the dough/candy cold is important.

There was a French candy guy on TV - I'm not being rude I just don't remember his name - and I can see where a stone slab would be an advantage for doing the stuff he was doing.

Essiebunny,
When I did my granite countertops, I used the cut-out from the sink to get two window sills to match. However, with the size you mentioned, I can't think of any other use than the one everybody suggested (slab for pastries/dough/candy)

Can the fabricator cut it thin (like tile), if you get 4 of those, you can use them for the top surface of a kitchen cart to match your countertops. This will require a bit of work, I am not sure how much expertise you have.
