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.

Our olive wood boards are made from old trees in southern Tuscany that have been uprooted in bad weather (no Italian would ever cut down an olive tree). The beautiful grain of the wood follows the tortuous way the trees grow, making each board unique. The boards are hard-wearing, and easy to clean (just wipe down with soap and water). Give an occasional oiling to restore the grain. NEVER put in a dishwasher or soak in water. Each board will be approximately 1kg in weight, and will vary in dimensions.
