The course.
What will I learn?

Patrick’s Academy of Cheese Level One classes have been tailored specifically for online learning to be accessible to both UK and overseas delegates. Fun, interactive and packed with information, they draw on Patrick’s 15-year career in cheese, which has seen him visit and learn from the best cheesemakers, maturers and cheesemongers in the world.

The online cheese course is taught across three weekly webinars, hosted live by Patrick using powerpoint, video and interactive tasks.  Students are taught in small groups of a maximum of 12 in a virtual ‘classroom’ with participants able to ask questions and interact with each other and Patrick.

Tutored tastings are a key part of the course. We can deliver a tasting pack containing 10 cheeses to delegates in the UK. For delegates who prefer to source their own cheese and/or are based overseas, the course can be purchased without the cheese delivery option at a reduced rate.

Who should take part?

Anybody who loves cheese! Level One is popular with a huge range of people, including foodie members of the public, who want to increase their knowledge to share with friends and family, but also industry professionals: chefs, sommeliers, retailers, cheesemakers, wholesalers and food and drink writers.

Patrick has taught students from countries including India, Barbados, Nigeria, Singapore, Russia, Australia, France, Denmark, Germany and the US.

He is also happy to organise and run bespoke online courses for private groups, tailoring either Level 1 or Level 2 to your interests. Previous private classes run by Patrick have included a group of sommeliers in the Far East, an overseas family cheese business and a group of friends with a keen interest in wine in Manchester. Just drop him a line with your requirements and he will get right back to you.
