Our Bar’s Academy of Cheese Level One course is all about giving you the tools to go from a humble cheese lover to a verified cheese connoisseur.
Learn about how cheese is made, how to taste like a pro, and how to approach cheese pairing with The Cheese Bar’s maverick spirit.
We’ll cover everything from The Make Process and the art of the Affineur, to the history of cheese, but – ultimately – we’ll taste and enjoy lots of amazing cheeses – from the UK and beyond.
We’ll also learn how best to select and serve cheeses, as well as what to drink with them – so whether you’re looking to gain knowledge to use at work, or simply to impress your mates with on cheese & wine night, our course will have you living your best Cheese Life in next to no time!
The Important Stuff
Ours is a one-day course, taking place from 9.30am – 4.30pm (GMT), at our newest restaurant, The Cheese Barge – Paddington.
The Course will be led by our Head Cheesemonger, Sam Wilkin, who has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share.
The session will be fully interactive, with discussion encouraged and, most importantly, you’ll get to taste 10 of the delicious cheeses covered at Level One.
The course price includes lunch on the Barge: one of our classic Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with a glass of wine (or non-alcoholic drink of your choice!). Please do get in touch with any specific dietary requirements and we can chat about how best to accommodate these.
