Guide: How much cheese to serve

Here are a few tips on how much cheese to serve per person depending on the occasion.

Are you hosting a dinner party or just having friends over for a snack? When serving cheese the amount of cheese to serve vary based on the occasion.

Here are a few tips for serving sizes:

Cheese Platter

If you are serving a cheese plate as a meal we recommend 200-250 g per person.

Cheese for lunch

If you are serving cheese for lunch we recommend 75-125 g per person.

Cheese as a mid-course

If you are serving cheese at a dinner party we recommend 25-50 g per person.

Cheese as dessert

If you are serving cheese for dessert we recommend 50-75 g per person.

For an entire meal you should plan for 600-800 g of food per person including bread. So if you serve a heavy starter, choose less for main and dessert so you end up with a total of 600-800 g.
