The Cheesemaking Workshop launched by Mandy Nolan inspired by an abiding passion for food and a love of cheese.

After life as an editor of several food magazines in Australia I am inspired by quick easy to prepare recipes and good fresh ingredients; my passion is to create delicious meals for friends and family. After attending a cheese making course overseas I tasted first hand the joys of eating freshly made cheese. It was simple to do, required minimum ingredients and tools, it pushed all the buttons for my style of food preparation. I knew that it would provide others with an entertaining day and a satisfying hobby.
Tasting, testing and writing about cheese is a natural extension of making cheese - I look forward to sharing my passion for all things cheesey.

Very informative. Answered all questions. Good amount and variety of cheeses to taste. Despite a difficult technical start with Zoom, a very enjoyable session.

This virtual cheese tasting event was fantastic - perfect for our team of 45! Mandy was extremely knowledgeable, very funny and everyone really loved it and learned a lot! Also, the portions of cheese were large and fantastically sourced. All kits arrived in advance of the session. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

This is such a fun and informative class. Mandy is a fabulous host and her brilliant tasting notes and knowledge really enhanced the experience.

Generous portions of cheese, so much that I can incorporate it into some lovely recipes for the next few days. The accompaniments are also very lovely additions.

The ambience Mandy creates makes you feel that you are enjoying the cheeseboard at the end of a brilliant dinner party.

This is not just a one off experience - it really makes you want to learn and sample more.

Thank you Mandy!

enjoyed learning more about the cheeses and Mandy was an entertaining host who knew alot about cheese. Shame it started 15 mins and a couple of people had "worms" in their brie

Reply from this teacher:

Hi Lisa,
I’m pleased you found the course informative and engaging and hope you enjoyed tasting all the different cheeses. It was most distressing to hear that some people had “worms in the cheese”. We instigated an investigation with the cheesemaker immediately, this was a new cheese in our range which we have decided to replace with a fabulous one we’ve tested and can’t wait to showcase on our next classes. This issue has made us take further measures to prevent such incidents to ever happen again. We hope to see you on our advanced courses in the near future and wish you a wonderful end of the year! Thank you again for joining us, we really enjoyed your company!

Absolutely brilliant. A very charming and intimate way to spend an evening. Delicious cheeses and expert knowledge and insight provided by Mandy. Would highly recommend. Can't wait for the Whiskey and cheeses next time!

Lola Coker Nov 2021

I enjoyed the class and the delicious cheeses. I learned several new facts about three cheeses that are new to me. There are few rules to storing cheese and prepping it to serve. Thanks to Mandy, I have got the skills to get the most enjoyment from cheese.

Mandy lives cheese and it’s reflected in the quality and attention to detail she takes before, during and after the tasting. We fell in love with varieties we had never heard of, had a great night and plenty left over to enjoy for the week ahead. We couldn’t recommend Mandy highly enough! Make sure you kick this off with an empty stomach
