Such a great course, and I’ve come away itching to start making my own cheese! Charlotte and Danielle were great instructors. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone thinking of attending :)

Whilst we enjoyed learning the process, it was disconcerting to have the instructor continually tell you that she was exhausted and tired as she’d had a late night working behind a bar. We also had a couple of people not turn up, so she went on to tell us several times over that she and the assistant would be taking the left over cheese - she went as far to insist on us placing the extra into her container when one of our team mistakenly divided it between us. It was actually embarrassing and absolutely ungenerous. Given she is presumably getting paid and we had paid $165 each to come home with a couple of blocks of cheese and instructions and a lack lustre teaching experience. The lunch was as lack lustre as the teaching with a couple of loaves of bread, 3 coles dips and a small tub of anti pasta and some cheese It would have cost less than $50 to feed 12 of us - if there had been $16 (just 10% of our cost) per person spent on lunch we would have received a much more nutritious lunch. I would you suggest that if you want repeat patronage you consider surprising and delighting your customers. We left underwhelmed and ripped off and will now go else where for the courses that we participate in a few times a year. I’m sorry but whilst the final product we walked away with was as promised, the experience was poor - the instructor also told us how other people had reviewed her in the past, putting down negative reviews and rolling her eyes that people were disappointed at finishing early - which we did, over an hour early - I’m sure this review will equally have eye roll status, but it’s your business and if you choose to conduct it in this way - maybe don’t ask for feedback.



Hello Amanda. Thank you for taking the time to review your workshop. I'm sorry to hear of your experience. Our participant's experience is important to us. These presenters have been instructing people here at CERES for over 10 years . Rest assured I  will be following up with them. In relation to your lunch, our correspondence stated that "tastings" were provided and where you could purchase lunch on the day. Again, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback.

Fantastic hands on opportunity to learn about cheese making - the class was full of curious people from diverse backgrounds and ages, andbthe teachers were full if information. The techniques used are completely do-able at home. Glad I did this with a friend because extra hands (and mouths) will be helpful when we next get together for a cheese making day!
