This 3-day course will focus on making quality cheese, understanding how cheese defects occur and developing strategies to prevent them. We will take a deep dive into specific defects found in particular styles of cheese including American and surface ripened cheeses. You will enjoy learning, networking, and the opportunity to ask questions of industry experts as they present on a wide range of topics. This course will be capped off with an interactive group activity where real-life cheese defect scenarios are presented and participants will diagnose the solution.
