Here are a few tips on how much cheese to serve per person depending on the occasion.
When planning a meal for guests, you should account for serving 600-800 g of food per person. While cheese can be served at various points throughout the meal, we recommend the following amount depending on the occasion and serving.
Lunch 75-125 g per person
Dessert 50-75 g per person
Cheese plate 250 g per person
Cheese at dinner party 25-30 g per person
When shopping for cheese, it’s great to have a variety in terms of flavour, intensity, and texture. Choose three to five different cheeses that vary in colour and firmness. It’s always a good idea to have something on the milder end of the spectrum for guests who may be less adventurous. Pair each cheese with both sweet and savoury pairings. Classic accoutrement include: grapes, preserves, dried fruit, olives, pickles, nuts, bread sticks, baguette, crackers, and of course, charcuterie.
Arrange the cheese and accoutrement on the cheese board with knives and serving utensils and watch your guests explore their palates with different pairings and cheeses!
