With the new academic year upon us, we’re busy working on new courses here at the Academy. That’s no reason for you to have your heads stuck in a book; we’ve got plenty of suggestions to keep you busy, with cheese making classes, supper clubs, training courses, tastings and discounts galore! For now, here’s our round up of what’s on this September; if it’s worth doing, we’ve got it! But do keep an eye on our events page and courses page as we are always adding more.
Spend a day learning how to make cheese in this purpose-built cheese dairy. Taught by industry expert Andy Swinscoe, you’ll be guided through the background science and technical theory of how to make cheeses, and then experience hands-on cheese-making of two distinctly different cheeses. And you’ll get to take home the cheese you made.
Join cheese expert Patrick McGuigan for an online cheese odyssey from the comfort of your own home, exploring everything from how cheese is made and how to taste like a pro to the history of cheese and the ultimate drinks matches.
