What will I learn?

With over 30 years of experience judging the most delectable cheeses from across the globe, our training courses give you an inside track to understanding both historic and modern artisan cheesemaking processes, how cheese is matured, aged and developed, and most importantly how it can be enjoyed to its fullest.

On this course you’ll also learn about common faults, how to tell if a cheese has turned, and experience for yourself exactly how perfectly conditioned cheeses should taste. The AoC Level 1 course is the perfect gift for any discerning food lover, but also ideal for aspiring food professionals and could help unlock a range of career paths within the industry.
