A new adventure into the Guild Of Cheese Graders for the Cheesy1


Good Evening Cheesy1’s,

The excitement is building because next week I will be joining Bruce Macdonald and other cheese lovers in Shropshire to become part of the Guild of Cheese Graders. The Guild was launched in 2015 by  Bruce Macdonald, a cheese grader with over 30 years’ experience and former Chairman for the International Cheese Awards. A quote from Bruce on the website explains “I had been considering creating a body which has the single purpose of providing training to an industry which increasingly seeks proof of training and ability. I subsequently had many discussions with colleagues in grading, technical, cheese-making, retail, food science, sensory analysis and H.R. After listening carefully to their thoughts and insights and combining them with my own, I decided to take action.” I think this is a brilliant opportunity for anyone from cheese beginners to aficionados. The course has four main objectives which it aims to provide Participants and they are:

To provide the individual with training to prove the essential basic abilities of taste, smell and cheese assessment.

To promote the use of the ‘common-language’ of cheese grading.

To provide proof of training.

To be an integral part of your Continuing Professional Development programme.

Bruce has really formed a great Guild here and I cannot wait to update you all with what happened over the course next week. In the meantime if you are interested in joining then head over to The Guild Of Cheese Graders for more information.
