Cheese Calculations

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.

Keep Cheese Away from Smelly Foods

Be careful to not store cheese with strong-smelling foods because the cheese will breathe in the odors and absorb it – this can alter the taste and spoil the cheese.

Once you’ve ripped the package open, wrap cheese in kitchen wrap and place in a food bag to store it – this will ensure circulation of air to help it last longer.

Serve ripened cheeses at room temperature because cold can mask their flavours. To temper cheese, remove it from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before serving, depending on the hardness of the cheese. Leave the cheese in a fresh, well-ventilated area and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
