    Event End: Oct 3, 2014 - 05:00 PM

    Les Touches, Cheniers, France 23220

    Ivan Larcher, renowned French cheesemaking consultant, technologist and educator, will teach his 5-day practical course: Cheesemaking Fundamentals at his farm l\’Or Blanc in Cheniers, France. The course will cover several different styles of cheese making techniques. Students will work with milk from the farm\’s Jersey cows and learn aspects of animal husbandry and milk production. Students will have ample time to work one-on-one with Ivan to perfect new cheese make recipes, troubleshoot problems, and improve make room design and sanitation practices.

    Professional Cheesemaking will be followed by the Academie Opus Caseus\’ Affinage course. Students enrolling in both courses will have a truly unique opportunity to work with professionals at every step of the life of their cheese, from milk through the first two weeks of affinage. When they depart from the Academie\’s Affinage course the cheese can remain in the caves at MonS, to be cared for by the MonS staff. When it has come to full ripeness, the cheese will be shipped to its maker with complete documentation of the care it has received from the MonS staff.


    2,500€ (Includes course, lodging, ground transportation, meals)

    The farm can accommodate a maximum of two to three students in two guest rooms
