Cheesemaking Course Reviews

I am thankful for this course, it has opened my mind to think that I just made 8 different cheeses over one weekend. I did not think that was possible for a complete novice. Graham is really passionate about making great cheese and the course is fun as well. Plus his helpers, Pam and Jan are very lovely ladies are very experienced cheesemakers who volunteer to help us.

Diana, Sydney

This was certainly an intensive course, but very professionally run and highly productive. I read the notes prior to the course, but was surprised at the quality of the delivery and the cheeses we made. The other participants, the helpers and the catering all made for a very enjoyable weekend. This course is highly recommended.

Anne, Sydney

This course was incredible, and while there is a lot of information and techniques provided, it was all super interesting and fun, clear and helpful. Graham is a fantastic teacher, and I am now excited to put all of my new skills to the test back home. Pam and Jen were a great resource for us and Loraine’s food was delicious.

Niamh, Sydney

Loved this course. Graham has loads of knowledge that he is happy to impart and he is an entertaining presenter. It was a great opportunity to learn from him and his course assistants (Jen and Pam) who were also great and Lorain’s cooking was delicious also.

Nadia, Sydney

This is a very practical course and is suited to the complete novice and we also had experienced cheesemakers that gained valuable insights. It was a wonderful introduction to cheesemaking.

Richard, Sydney

Graham managed to communicate a vast amount of information over one weekend, while keeping things pleasantly busy and fun. I will definitely be back for cheesemaking 2.

Grant, Sydney

This is a comprehensive and well developed course. Having course notes to study prior to attendance enabled us to build on our reading. We took home eight cheeses, had the opportunity to ask questions and ate lots of nice food. It was such an amazing experience for my daughter and me. Lots of joint cheesemaking sessions ahead. And I say to you, we hope to see you at the next cheesemaking course.

Roslyn, Sydney

Melissa, Sydney

Graham along with Pam and Jen showed us all of the ins and outs of basic cheesemaking at a very busy weekend. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in discovering this almost lost art. I now feel well equipped to go home and make my own cheeses. I now have a new hobby.

Olympia, Sydney

Graham is an awesome instructor, Very informative, a wealth of information, and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect.

A fantastic experience. Absolutely. Great attitude from Graham and his helpers. We are absolute beginners and have learned so much over the two days.

Pauline, Melbourne

Every time I go to one of Graham’s courses, I want to test myself and try all of these new techniques. This course is not for the faint-hearted; it goes up another level from Intensive Cheesemaking 1. I am now looking to age the cheeses that we made.

Nicky, Sydney

I have been to three of Graham’s courses now over several years. So much information to learn. Graham’s courses are always very practical, and he and his team always have time to share their vast knowledge with everyone.

Dessirae, Sydney

Graham has an amazing amount of knowledge in making cheese. He was able to show us this in a logical and uncomplicated way.

Personally, I will be making much better cheeses now.

So well put together, informative and no fluff. I like how we got straight into the cheesemaking. The workbook is super informative. I can see a lot of effort has been put into the course, and it was fun and ran so smoothly.

This was my 2nd time attending this course. Loved it even more this time around. Always a great two days. Lost of learning, lots of hard work with a few laughs thrown in.

Nicola, Canberra

This course is really practical and informative. It really sets you up to make cheese at home. It is jam-packed but well structured and keeps a nice pace over the two days.

This course is definitely intensive. We made a great variety of different cheeses. Very clear directions are given at all stages of the process. I found it fairly intense but on a manageable level.

Coralie, Canberra

The course was very informative. I like that we were always busy, provided with detailed notes that we could follow and backed up by very good explanations.

Lovely host crew. And a very informative course. Best way to embark on a new home cheesemaking journey.

Cheesemaking with Graham was very informative and easy to follow for anyone new to cheesemaking. But those that were a little experienced, I think, would also have gained plenty. I cannot wait to test out my new set of skills at home. Thank you to everyone that delivered this course.

Mim, Melbourne

A high-quality introduction that completely exceeded my expectation. I was not expecting anything this well organised and professionally delivered. Graham is very thorough and is well supported by lovely staff. Thanks team.

Helen, Melbourne

Great intensive cheesemaking course. Fantastic. Intensive being the operative word. Thank you so much, Graham. I look forward to getting the ball rolling and making my first batch of cheese as soon as I get home

Samantha, Melbnourne

This course was enjoyable and informative.  Graham’s course will help me with adding to my existing cheesemaking skill set. Things like the exact measurements, temperatures, hygiene, documentation, and precision with cutting, but then the science of why I was doing certain things rather than just doing them blindly. If you want to improve your cheesemaking, get along to one of Graham’s courses.  You will not regret it.

Linda, Melbourne

Learning to make cheese seemed unachievable and way too complicated.  This course has changed all that. We made Brie, Cheddar, Greek Feta, Fresh Mozzarella, plus more. Wow. It has completely changed my thinking about how to make cheese at home.

Nathalie, Melbourne

Loved this course. Graham was amazing, exceptionally clear and helpful and kept us busy and on track. His staff were exceptional, and it was a great inspiration to hear their cheesy journeys. If you make it to one of Graham’s courses, be prepared for a very busy two days and the reward of taking home eight amazing cheeses.

Simon, Melbourne

“Learning by doing.” This course exceeded my expectations. It has a good pace of doing, paired with exact instructions, backed up with an extensive booklet, all so that everyone can easily replicate making cheese at home.

David, Melbourne

Really busy two days. But I enjoyed it immensely. You learn so much over the two days. On Sunday afternoon you go away with so much confidence to make your own cheese.

Jess, Sydney

Otgo

Amazing curse. If you love cheese and want to get into making it, go to one of Graham’s courses. You will not be disappointed.

Otto, Sydney

Graham provides a great introduction to cheesemaking. He is very helpful. We had an amazing morning tea and lunch. Great atmosphere. Great balance between learning a number of cheeses and the theory with added opportunities to ask lots of questions. This is exactly the course I was looking for.

Fantastic opportunity to get into the world of cheesemaking. It is fast paced but never overwhelming and I am very much looking forward to my own making and tasting.

Phil, Sydney

Graham is a wonderful wealth of knowledge regarding cheese. The course is full-on, and everyone in our course supported each other and believes we will all go away eager to develop our skills at home. I am looking to do cheesemaking 2 as soon as I get my cheese miles up.

Everything is so organised and the clarity of instructions. I like the pace and the size of the class fits. I like it is hands-on and has enough information to know what we were doing and why. Graham puts all of this together in a great way. He is friendly and knows his stuff and imparts that in such a way that it makes sense. Thanks Graham for making this a shared personal experience.  And of course, to Liz, Liz and Sabrina for your most welcome assistance. It was muchly appreciated

Went to Cheesemaking 2 having not completed cheesemaking 1.
