A wonderful idea for a gift! Please ensure the shipping information is filled out with details and email address of the person who is receiving the gift, not the purchaser. 

Allergies/Item Substitutions?

Unfortunately we cannot make substitutions of any kind for these virtual classes, simply due to logistical constraints and the contents of the presentation.

How do I prepare on the night?

Please make sure you have all cheeses ready (at room temperature), and lined up as per the hand-out you receive. Also, it’s important to ensure that you have a strong internet connection.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
