Become a Master of Cheese with
Harvey & Brockless and Academy of Cheese

As founding patrons of the Academy of Cheese, Harvey & Brockless are delighted to introduce the UK's first industry endorsed accreditation in cheese expertise. Founded by Mary Quicke,  it gives professionals working with cheese an opportunity to build up a qualification at their own pace, that will ultimately result in the accolade of 'Master of Cheese'.

Level 1 Course one day course - 15th May 2018
Location: 44-54 Stewarts Road, London SW8 4DF


About the Academy of Cheese

The Academy of Cheese is a new not-for-profit industry funded organisation. It has been set-up to promote cheese knowledge and provide career development, both within the industry and amongst the wider public. 


About the Qualification

The accreditation will follow a similar path to the globally recognised Wines & Spirits Educational Trust (WSET). This course is an introduction to all types of cheese and learning to taste cheese. Level One sees you taste 25 classic cheeses the Academy of Cheese way.  By the end of this course you will be  equipped to recognise the full spectrum of 'cheese type'; name, appearance, how it is made, type of milk, how it is matured, whether it has a protected status and it's geographical origin. You will be discussing the appearance, aroma and flavour of these cheeses; establishing a standard vocabulary for cheese tasting and profiling.
