May 2021: 'I have recently completed the Academy of Cheese Level 1 course with Paxton and Whitfield. Everything worked really smoothly, making the experience very enjoyable. The cheese deliveries were timely and the cheeses were in perfect condition. The teaching, from Annie and Hero, was informative, relaxed and well-paced. The course materials were very thorough, although some would have benefitted from further proofreading. All in all, first-class!'
