"Earlier this year my wife and I did the beginners cheese making course with Gav. As two enthusiasts with some business ideas, we were not only after some basic knowledge how to make cheeses like ricotta, feta and halloumi. We wanted to know more. More about chemical processes, aging conditions, milk quality requirements, etc. Gav provided exactly what we were after. Not only did he deliver a great course and answered all of our questions. Throughout our conversations he also provided invaluable insights into cheese making trade, detailed chemical process in cheese production and ageing processes. We can highly recommend Gav as a cheese maker guru and instructor!"

Like many others, I have been watching your videos for almost a year now. Frequently when I get stuck on something or have a question I go and check if you have a video. You always do. I also have your book. So, it is great that you are now doing online classes! Even though I have made many cheeses now, there is still so much to learn. I have started with course one and working my way through everything you offer. I have been wanting to take classes, but, I am housebound due to my husband's medical issues. Your videos solve that issue. Thank you."

Grateful Grad

"When I first started making cheese in 2018 I was flying blind. I read any book I could find, and most of them were over my head and did not speak to the very basic questions I had: simple things like what milk to use, thermometers, pots or even ripening boxes. I roamed the internet and Youtube trying out different video teachers. It seemed like there were lots of quick mozzarella vids but not much else until I found Gavin. I started watching his livestream and the replays and his numerous cheesemaking tutorial videos and then I heard about Curd Nerd Academy.

The Academy gave me a huge push in the right direction. There were six or seven cheese recipe tutorials, lots of basic information, it was reasonably priced, I could keep it and watch it over and over again which is how I learn best. And it was a ton of fun—a very good value for a wealth of information and inspiration. I highly recommend it. I have watched Gavin's chat for a number of years now. He and the World Curd Nerd community have become a part of my life. And the Curd Nerd Academy was a valuable part of my education! I still consider myself a grateful grad and I never stop learning from Gavin!"

I could find all this information on the Internet or in books!
Yes, you probably could. However, from personal experience, it took me years to learn all the basics of cheesemaking from many sources and I wish there had been a course like this one available at that time. With this course, I have taken all the hard work out of learning how to make cheese and saved you many dozens of hours in research. Plus, all of the course recipes have been fully tested and actually work!
