How does one determine how much cheese is needed? Here’s a rough guideline to help with cheese counts: If entertaining with other foods: 45-60 g per person; If it’s just wine and cheese: 120 g per person; If including a platter of hors d’oeuvres, pate, cold cuts, or salads: 60 g per person; To help get a better sense of portion sizes, a 1” cube of cheese is about 30 g.
Vary cheeses according to taste, texture, colour, and shape. Cut cheese into cubes, slices, sticks, and wedges.
“Many’s the long night I’ve dreamed of cheese.” - Robert Louis Stevenson
