What will I learn?
The virtual course will be taught by Max Melvin, one of our senior cheesemongers and educators. He has written and presented many cheese workshops that take a multidisciplinary approach to this fascinating subject. They take in his interests in science, politics, philosophy and education. He is especially interested in the science of milk and cheese, and makes our beautiful homemade cultured butter.

“A terrific course. Brilliantly structured and easy to follow. And the teaching is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that even the technical parts are made fascinating. It’s the perfect balance of feeling like you’re learning a lot but also having a great time doing it.”
