With so many cheeses available , how do you help your loyal customers find what they like?

As an accomplished Ritz-trained Chef, I thought I knew a lot about cheese. But walking into the American Cheese Society's Festival of Cheeses in 1992 for the first time, greeted by thousands of different cheeses of all sizes, shapes, colors and textures, I knew right then and there, there was so much more to learn. 

With this knowledge, as a retailer, I worked hard to find the best and avoid buying the wrong cheese for my wonderful customers. We struggled daily to avoid selling it too young, or over the hill.  Our customers asked great questions, the kind only people new to a subject ask: fundamental ones. They asked me about fat in cheese –was it safe to eat? What makes cheese Cheese? How to cook with it? They inspired me to keep on learning, and now I am sharing what I learned over the last three decades  with you.

"You will learn all you need to know to make sense of this complex, rich, ever so yummy sometimes unpronounceable and delicious world of ..."

What matters is to help people enjoy the good healthy food with flavor.

"The more your Mongers know the better they can sell."

You will learn what to look for to match the person to the cheese, and how to describe the taste  without having to use complicated language. 

What is in the Course that makes it Different:

Entertaining, direct to the point Video Lectures

"Clearly presented but in depth"

Made for beginners and aficionados. Each video presents a subject so you can watch at your convenience, repeat, slow it down and speed it up. History, health, lactose, rinds, shapes, cheese tasting, cheese platter tips... Take what you need or engage and digest completely.

Support Materials ready for download

Materials originally developed for food writers, farmers, Chefs, and the public, to help bridge the gap of information about really great cheese.

  • Some of the material was done for my client the California Milk Advisory Board 
  • The same materials that seduced the food profession to stop, taste and share the wonders of artisan cheese.

Practical downloadable eBook Versions on how to buy and store

Since you most likely can't bring your computer to the store while you buy and don't want to get it wet in the kitchen, I have some lectures in eBook format that can be easily downloaded and printed, readily available if you need them again and again.

Links to More Information , like Books on Cheese

Personally selected from people I know, or things I have personally read. With so much information out there, isn't it nice to have a personal chef and guide to help you choose?

This course fills the gaps not already filled by the books on cheese, and mingles well with them, each enriching the other.

Ever Evolving, Improving with great ways to interact together

When you attend a course or buy a book, you get what is ready at the time. Maybe there will be more editions of a book, but with online a question can come asking to clear something up and that same day the course updated to make it clearer. The course will be ever evolving, continually getting better, ever more scrumptious learning.

WOW! What a fabulous journey to the Land of Cheese!

I Love this class! I watch some of the Colorful and Playful and Informative sessions repeatedly! Cheese is a comfort food and this relaxed, visually rich and entertaining "comfort class" that opens a whole world... of amazing facts about cheese, (spoiler alert: moon not actual cheese). I have always loved cheese but never understood Anything about it. This relaxed and delightful class includes among the great visual aids and pictures, several charts of how all the cheeses we know are related. I had to pause them to study which cheeses are grouped together... often meaning I could search for many new options that are similar to what I already like. Very useful for shopping, trying new items, etc. Informative! Fun to watch! I learned that the churches made cheeses including Monterey Jack! to preserve milk to feed the orphans! Okay, that's just one of the Many factoids that I found fascinating. Ron Masa, Ph.D
