• In general, allow 20-30 grams of each cheese per person, but no more than a total of 100-120 grams per person.

• Remove most cheeses from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving to allow them to come to room temperature. For whole wheels and large wedges, cut only what you expect to use and return the remainder to the refrigerator.

• Arrange them on the serving plate with accompaniments alongside but not touching the cheese. It’s best to use a larger plate that gives guests plenty of room to manoeuvre the cutting of the cheese.

• For firm cheeses served in wedges, cut a couple of ‘starting slices’ to prompt guests as to the best way to cut the cheese.

• Cover loosely with a damp tea towel or plastic wrap until serving time.
