Cheese Sensory Workshops at NCDE - Werribee, VIC

Cheese Sensory Workshops at NCDE - Werribee, VIC

22 August 2016

How well do you know cheese? These 2 one-day workshops at the National Centre for Dairy Education (NCDE) in Werribee, Victoria, cover the principles of cheese sensory evaluation and judging. 

Presented by cheese judge (and ASCA member) Sonia Cousins, the courses are suitable for cheesemakers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors, chefs, media, and others interested in improving their knowledge of cheese, and who want to understand how cheeses are judged in major Australian shows.

Both courses include theory about the science of taste, and practical activities such as threshold tests, as well as extensive tasting and sensory evaluation of a variety of cheeses. The cost of each course is separate, and includes course notes, a light lunch and morning and afternoon tea.

Fresh and Soft Cheeses - Monday 22 August, 2016

This course covers fresh, stretched curd, white mould, washed rind and other soft cheese styles. Download the course brochure here.

Semi-hard, Hard & Blue Cheeses - Tuesday 23 August, 2016
