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.

Driftwood cheese's texture is mousse-like when young, but, as it develops, it becomes intensely rich and creamy. The flavour starts out light and delicate, but a fuller flavour soon emerges as the coat begins to break down the paste of the cheese underneath.
Pete Humphries has been making cheese in the UK since 1995, from Cheddar to Bath Soft. In 2005 he joined forces with local goat herder Roger Longman to set up his own dairy, White Lake Cheese.
Using the milk from Roger’s 600+ goats and Pete’s know-how, they have developed a range of original and delicious cheeses. Indeed the number of cheeses in development in Pete’s maturing rooms is testament to his continuing creativity.
Driftwood is one of his more recent creations. It is a delicious goats’ milk log. The cheese is rolled in ash, before the grey mottled wrinkly coat is encouraged to develop over the snow white interior.
