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.

"Hello Ewe" is made by husband and wife team, Tim Homewood and Angela Morris. Tim originally learned to make cheese with Peter Humphries at White Lake Cheese, but decided in 2008 to set up business with his fiancé Angela. In order to make a new start, they decided to concentrate on ewes’ milk cheeses rather than the goats’ and cows’ milk cheeses that Tim had made before. Ewe’s milk has the advantage of giving a higher yield when transformed into cheese. Although this was originally perhaps more of a commercial decision, the pair have fallen in love with the delicate and sweet ewes’ milk, and are now delighted to make cheese only from this milk. Tim and Angela use a Halloumi recipe to make this cheese. Once the curd has been set, cut, moulded, pressed and turned, it is then added back to the whey which has already been boiled and skimmed (ricotta is formed as a by product of the skimming). The cheese is scalded in the hot whey until it rises to the surface, letting Tim know that it is ready. This Somerset cheese is a truly hand-made product, and is a million miles away from the mass-produced Halloumi that are more readily available.
