How does one determine how much cheese is needed? Here’s a rough guideline to help with cheese counts: If entertaining with other foods: 45-60 g per person; If it’s just wine and cheese: 120 g per person; If including a platter of hors d’oeuvres, pate, cold cuts, or salads: 60 g per person; To help get a better sense of portion sizes, a 1” cube of cheese is about 30 g.
Vary cheeses according to taste, texture, colour, and shape. Cut cheese into cubes, slices, sticks, and wedges.

Fondue can be a great element when entertaining. Just remember, there’s more to fondue than melting cheese in a pot! Add a thickener – such as flour or corn starch – and add white wine or beer for extra flavour.
