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.

A classic from the Loire, a region knee-deep in great goats' milk cheeses dating back to the Saracen invasion of France in the 8th century. It is so delicate when young that it is held together by a thin straw. (In order to control production of the cheese, the dairies now have to have their farm's name or code laser engraved on the straw. (Pull it out and look!) The fresh cheese is ashed, and then ripened to produce a log that is both creamy and full-flavoured. The Fine Cheese Co.'s Sainte Maure is selected from one of the small farmhouse producers and aged to perfection by the affineur Hardy.
