How Much Cheese To Buy
We recommend a portion size of 70-120g per person depending on when you are eating the cheese. 70g is ample if you are serving the cheese immediately after a large meal or as part of a buffet. If the cheese is the main part of the meal you will need to allow at least 100g per person and you may prefer to go to 120g if you think your guests will be particularly hungry (or just very fond of cheese!).
However, if you are only a small party, you may find that the pieces look a little small. In this case, choose fewer pieces, or even just one cheese, so that you can present your guests with something that looks more substantial. If you want to provide a wider choice of cheeses, just go for slightly larger pieces and enjoy the leftovers yourself the next day.

Waterloo cheese is soft, rich and buttery like a hollandaise sauce, but with a lactic finish emanating from its centre.
It is made by Anne and Andy Wigmore in Berkshire and was originally made with Guernsey milk from the Duke of Wellington’s estate. Stratfield Saye has been home to the Dukes of Wellington since it was acquired by the very first Duke after the battle of Waterloo in 1817.
The milk now comes from a single herd of Guernsey cows near Henley. Anne and Andy wash the curds for this cheese to lower the acidity, which gives it a gentle, sweet flavour.
We unashamedly source, care for and sell the best cheese, because that is what we believe in. Every day of dispatch one of our trained cheesemongers cuts every piece fresh, by hand, and wraps it in our waxed paper. We do this because it is most respectful way to treat this precious food.
