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.

Graceburn is a superbly soft and rich cheese, based on a Persian Feta recipe, and made by David Holton and Tim Jarvis at Blackwoods Cheese Company in Kent.
David and Tim have based their dairy on Common Work Organic Farm, which has a herd of Friesian Holsteins, cross-bred with Swedish Red and Montbeliarde cattle.This milk provides the perfect balance of butter fat and proteins, which makes it particularly suitable for creating this super-creamy, fresh cheese.
Initially, David and Tim soak the fresh cheeses in brine. Unlike traditional Feta, which is preserved in larger blocks, Graceburn is broken by hand into smaller pieces, and steeped in a blend of extra virgin olive oil and rapeseed oil, infused with thyme, garlic, bay and pepper.
The rich and creamy cows’ milk makes Graceburn softer and more melt-in-the-mouth than traditional Feta.
