Cheese Appreciation Level 2

Cheese Appreciation 2 builds upon the knowledge gained in the pre-requisite course Cheese Appreciation 1.  This course is offered at a retail level (deli staff training) and also has been offered in the past to cheese enthusiasts.

The emphasis in this course is on Old and New World Cheeses.  A history of classic Old World Cheeses, by country, is studied.  The course integrates a comparison of New World Cheeses in the tasting component of the class.  Without understanding the history behind Old World Cheeses, it is impossible to appreciate the innovation and craftsmanship behind fine New World Cheeses.
