The course is designed so that the practical knowledge, skills and understanding gained during the three days can be applied to improve the production of any blue cheese type.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.
