“No other study system gives this breadth of resources, choice and flexibility in cheese. You can study in your own time, in your preferred format – video, text or audio – and revisit the areas you need to focus on. Charlie Turnbull delivers so much more than both the Academy e-learning and Zoom tutor sessions.”

I loved hearing about the history of the cheeses. I found it fascinating to hear about the different origins. I also loved learning about the making of the cheese and it is easy to forget the amount of work that goes into the process.
