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.
When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
