Don’t be intimidated by the thought of entertaining! All it takes is some careful planning. Follow this handy guide for help with some frequently asked questions:
How much wine do I need?
750 ml. bottle = five 5 oz. glasses
12 bottles (case) = one glass for 60 guests
Ask a wine steward about available discounts on large wine purchases.
How should I serve cheese to my guests?
When preparing a cheese board, always start with a cheese-friendly surface, such as wood, tile or marble.
As a general guideline, when buying cheese for a party, get about 1 to 1 1/2 ounces per person, per cheese.
Cheeses are best served in odd numbers (arranged according to flavor) with a common theme, like country of origin or type.
Always use separate knives for each cheese and remember to serve them at room temperature for best flavor.
How many appetizers and hors d’oeuvres should I get?
Anticipate 3 pieces per person per appetizer if you are serving them as a start to a larger, more formal meal. Usually in this format, you will not need to serve more than one or two options.
Heavy hors d’oeuvres parties require quite a bit more. Traditionally, guests will consume a minimum of 10 to 12 pieces in a 2 to 2 1/2 hour period.
In addition to providing individual-sized nibbles, it is always a good idea to consider including one or two composed platters such as fruit, grilled vegetables, spinach dip or hummus, or antipasto.
