Evening and weekend cheese courses announced, exploring provenance, pairing and the palate

Amy Brice

Academy of Cheese

Cheese-lovers can now delve deeper behind the rind and become an Associate of the Academy of Cheese by completing the School of Fine Food’s Level 1 course in their spare time. Introducing its first Saturday course and an evening course run over three weeks, the London-based School of Fine Food, which is run by the Guild of Fine Food, is giving more people the opportunity to expand their cheese knowledge and gain a recognised qualification.

Taking the first step on a journey to become a fully-qualified Master of Cheese, students will cover cheese making, provenance and terminology, as well as taking part in a comprehensive tutored tasting of 25 different cheeses. Designed to help curate an epic cheese board at home or develop a career behind the counter, the fun hands on course is supported by a wealth of cheese-related literature to assist with a little home study and lots more tasting, before students complete their online certification.

The Academy of Cheese Level 1 Associate course costs £195 and is held at No. 42 Southwark Street, the School of Fine Food’s London home near Borough Market. One-day courses run from 9:30am to 5pm and will take place on the following dates; Saturday 6 April, Thursday 20 June, Wednesday 18 September and Wednesday 6 November. The evening course will run over three consecutive weeks on Tuesday 11, 18 and 25 June from 6:30pm – 9pm.
