Guided study

Level One Self-study Guided Session | “Make Post-make: A Cheesemaker’s View” March 2023


Part of our series of free-to-join, live online workshops, designed to enhance your studies and help you understand the tasting process a little better.

Join our resident cheesemaker, Katy Fenwick, for a look at the world of cheese making through the lens of the Academy of Cheese Make Post-make Model.

In this 45 minute class, we’ll taste through a range of styles from the Level One Cheese Library and look at the technology and processes that transform simple milk into such a wide variety of cheese.

This Guided Session involves tasting and discussing cheeses. Not only is this an important part of the course, it is also a wonderful way to learn. However, it is not essential for you to have the exact cheeses in order to join the study group. The cheeses are not provided but have been chosen to be readily available at most delis, cheesemongers and supermarkets. Check out our “Where To Buy” directory to help you source your cheeses.

The cheeses that will be tasted during this session will be:

There will also be time at the end of the class for a Q&A session.
