PORTIONING GUIDE

for our three most popular cheeses

Seal the wrapped pieces you plan to serve another day in cling film or airtight container and refrigerate. Use within a couple weeks for best aroma and flavor. A tight wrap will reduce surface mold growth, but if some should appear, simply 'face' your piece by scraping it away.

We recommend completing the first three steps below and then pausing to wrap each resulting piece in parchment or wax paper. Let the chunks you plan to portion and serve come to room temperature, wrapped tightly, for at least an hour before completing step four.

ALPHA TOLMAN

A two-pound wedge yields 36 or 42 portions, depending on step 4.

  1. Start with a two-pound chunk - bisect symmetrically from above
  2. Now bisect a one-pound wedge between the heel and the tip
  3. Bisect the larger heel-end, symmetrically from above
  4. Each of the three small chunks can be laid on their side and the rind pieces narrowly removed. Slice what remains into 6 triangles for ~3/4 oz portions, or 7 triangles for closer to 2/3 oz portions.

Plate immediately with sliced, cured meat and pickled vegetables, or wrap tightly for holding to avoid a dry, waxy texture.

CABOT CLOTHBOUND

A two-pound wedge yields 36 or 42 portions, depending on step 4.

  1. Start with a two-pound chunk - bisect symmetrically from above
  2. Now bisect a one-pound wedge between the heel and the tip
  3. Bisect the larger heel-end, symmetrically from above
  4. Each of the three small chunks can be laid on their side and the rind piece narrowly removed. Slice what remains into 6 triangles for ~3/4 oz portions, or 7 triangles for closer to 2/3 oz portions.

Plate immediately with fresh or preserved apples and literally any beverage, or wrap tightly for holding to avoid a dry, crumbly texture.

BAYLEY HAZEN BLUE

A quarter wheel yields 36 or 42 portions, depending on step 4.

  1. Start with a quarter wheel - bisect symmetrically from above
  2. Lop-off one third of an eighth wheel like a pie wedge.
  3. Bisect the remaining wedge in half from above.
  4. Each of the three small chunks can be laid on their side and the rind piece narrowly removed. Slice what remains into 6 triangles for ~2/3 oz portions, or 7 triangles for closer to 1/2 oz portions.

Plate immediately with dark chocolate and a glass of sherry, or wrap tightly for holding to avoid a dry, chalky texture.
