How much cheese is “enough” cheese?

Quick! You’re hosting a group of six for hors d’oeuvres before dinner. Naturally, you choose to serve cheese. But how much is enough, without being too much? A good rule of thumb is four ounces total cheese for each person. So, let’s say you have four cheeses and six guests: 6 bellies x 4 oz. divided by 4 cheeses = 6 oz. (1/3 lb.) of each cheese. Simple, huh? Don’t forget bread/crackers and some nice accompaniments to round out the presentation. And always serve your cheeses at room temperature – an hour out of the fridge will do it.
