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.

Wigmore cheese is complex, fruity, rich and unctuous, with a great delicacy of taste and texture. It's the sister cheese to Waterloo. They are both washed curd cheeses, which means that an amount of whey is replaced with water during the make, so leading to a gentle, delicate flavour and a smooth texture. Do not imagine this creates a bland cheese though.
Anne Wigmore began making cheese in the experimental dairy at the National Institute for Research in Dairying (NIRD) in 1984, having worked there previously for a number of years as a microbiologist. Soon afterward, she decided to set up on her own, and, in 1986, Village Maid Dairy was born in a converted building at the end of her garden. Anne’s knowledge of cheese-making is highly technical, but she has a great feel for the cheese too.
You may purchase Wigmore as a whole cheese in 400g or 800g weights, or as a 200g cut.
