Do you have a passion for cheese? Expand your knowledge with The Academy of Cheese level 1 course.
For all lovers of cheese, increase your knowledge to share with family & friends or to enhance your career. This course is an introduction to all types of cheese, cheese making and learning to taste cheese the Academy way.
Join Academy of Cheese® Training Partner Jonny Tyson as he takes you through the basics of how cheese is made, how to make a great cheese board selection and the flavours and profiles of the level one syllabus of 25 cheeses.
The course is completed over three consecutive Tuesday evenings (7pm - 9pm), you will learn all about the world’s classic cheeses, how they are made, their history and what they taste like. We use specialist training materials from the Academy of Cheese, taste 12 classic cheeses and learn about cheese in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
Unable to commit on the evening? No problem! Anyone registered for this tasting will gain access to the video recording of the live event, so you can always revisit any of these at anytime in the future - whether its because you missed participating in the live evening or if you want to revisit the presentation at a later date.
Anybody with an interest in Cheese! Level 1 is for anyone who wants to understand the basics of cheese and cheesemaking whether out of their own passion or as a stepping-stone in their career.
Yes - Students may elect to sit the Academy of Cheese® Level 1 Associate exam after completing the course , however this exam can be completed online, at your home and at the convenience of the student. Anyone who successfully completes this exam will receive a certificate and badge - as well as the right to say they are qualified in cheese!
A tasting of 6 wines is included in the course fee - we are a wine school after all! While the focus of the day is very much on cheese, students will also have the opportunity to taste 6 wines during the course chosen specifically to help demonstrate cheese and wine pairing principles.
Please note that wine tasting is not an essential component to this course however, and if a student would like to attend the course without tasting any wine that is absolutely fine. Use the promotion code NO2WINE when completing your purchase, and £20 will be removed from your course fee.
For this course, students will receive tasting kits with all 12x cheese samples and 50ml samples of the 6x wines tasted throughout the duration of this course.
