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.

Pave Cobble cheese is a delicate ewes’ milk pyramid from Somerset that swept the board at the 2017 British Cheese Awards, winning Best Fresh Cheese, Best Speciality Cheese, Best English Cheese and finally, Supreme Champion.
Made by White Lake, which is famous for its goats’ milk cheeses, but this time from ewes’ milk that is sourced from a small family farm five miles away.
This lactic cheese is delicately hand-ladled before being salted, “charcoaled”, and then matured for around three weeks to form a wrinkly rind, which protects the light mousse-like core.
The cheese is named in celebration of the Spring classic bike races on the cobbled roads in Belgium and northern France, the winner of which receives an actual cobble as a prize. These roads are called pavés. Hence the name of the cheese.
