cheese-making Sapori e saperi

Theory & Practice of Italian Cheese

Sapori and Saperi Adventures – Flavours and Knowledge of Italian Artisans

Learning to make cheese takes an hour. Learning to make good cheese is a lifetime’s work. This course will give the novice enough training to make some simple cheeses, but its main aim is to give professional artisan cheesemakers the opportunity to share and enhance their knowledge by working with five Tuscan cheesemakers who have been making cheese every day of their lives. Their cheese and ricotta are expressions of an unbroken tradition handed down to them from their parents and grandparents, some made in a single pot from the milk of their own animals and some to which a little modern technology has been applied without obliterating their character. The course covers cow, sheep and goat milk cheeses. It is taught in English.
