I am in the uneviable position of providing cheese and charcuterie for a group of 14 people at the Hollywood Bowl July 4. I want to get a nice selection (may 4 cheeses and two types of charcuterie). There will be other food at the pot luck, so I don't need giant portions, but I don't want to skimp either. My questions:
1. Cheese Shop of BH vs. Cheese Shop of Silver Lake vs. Say Cheese vs. Andrew's vs. Artisan Cheese Gallery?: Where is the best overall value? Or is there an alternate? I'm driving from the South Bay to Studio City anyway, so I'm happy to stop somewhere in between.
2. How many ounces per person should I allot for? Again, there will be many other side dishes.
