Many of us are gluttons for cheese but often we’re slaves of habit and end up always eating the same types.


Yet Italy is a goldmine of dairy products. On this course you’ll get to know them, how to choose them and how to enjoy them. Starting with firsthand experience on a dairy farm and continuing with in-depth online learning, using a tasting kit that you’ll receive at home, here you’ll have all the tools you need to find out about tasting, biodiversity, animal breeds and milks, production techniques and areas, and much more besides …
