Academy of Cheese Level 1: Associate Course. 

Enjoy a fun day at Leeds' only cheesemongers, George & Joseph honing your cheese tasting skills, learning how cheeses is made and meeting our mongers. 

You will spend the day with our Cheesemonger in Chief Stephen Fleming, the owner of George & Joseph. Stephen brings a wealth of cheese knowledge and an unrivalled passion for cheese following over ten years of working with cheese. He started first with a local market stall around Leeds, then set up our bricks & mortar shop in Chapel Allerton in 2013.

Everyone is welcome! There are no prerequisites to attend this class. This is most definitely not a boring course! It is fun and engaging with class sizes kept small to enable easy interaction with Stephen and with the rest of the group. In what other course do you get to eat cheese all day?

The date for this course is Wednesday 26th January 2022 starting 9am and finishing around 5pm. 

A delicious lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day.

Location: George & Joseph Cheesemongers, 140 Harrogate Road, LS7 4NZ

On completion successfully of the small course exam you will then receive an industry-recognised accreditation and will have a much wider knowledge of how cheese is made; its provenance; how to select and present it; and how to taste it.

Over the day you will learn:

▪️ The cheesemaking process

▪️ Maturing and affinage

▪️ How to select a cheeseboard

▪️ Techniques for cutting, packing and caring for cheese

▪️ The key descriptors of cheeses and how to pair them with drinks

▪️ The history of cheesemaking and large scale versus artisan production 

▪️ Tasting and identifying cheeses using the AOC Structured Approach to Tasting
