Since my new dive into the customer service side of Artisanal, I have been pleased to connect with our retail customer base who call us with questions and comments about our products. Those of you who I do speak with I try to show you that not only can Artisanal provide you with exceptional cheeses but we can also help you prepare for an event such as a wine tasting or a simple gathering with a few friends. We can also suggest a few delicious cheeses and beverages to pair. I strive to provide you with a unique experience because Artisanal is different from any other company.
I receive calls each day from new retail customers inquiring about certain cheeses as well as a variety of other cheese related questions.
Here is one of the more popular questions:
How much of each cheese do I need to order for my party?
Depending on how many people you are serving and how many cheeses are being purchased, I usually suggest around 1/2 to 1 oz. per cheese/per person. This way there will be enough for everyone and maybe just a little left over which is never a bad thing. For a cheese that has a much stronger flavor like Roquefort, Carles you could serve about 1/2 oz. as you don’t need as much because a little taste goes a long way. A superb mild flavored cheese like Nettle Meadow Kunik could be served in a 1oz portion because, well lets be honest, its hard to only eat one ounce of this amazing triple crÃ¨me goat cheese.
…And keep those questions coming, we encourage them!
