Cheese Education Evening with Kobus Mulder

Slow Food Joburg hopes to bring you some interesting, educational and exciting events and happenings this year.

The first is a cheese education with Kobus Mulder. He is up here in Joburg running an educational programme for the Checkers cheese vendors and we have snagged him for one night only. Kobus is the dairy manager at Agri-Expo and is South Africa’s only international cheese judge. He has previously adjudicated at various world cheese competitions in France, the UK, and America.

Kobus will guide us through an exploration of the different cheese types using only South African cheese. There are  hundreds and thousands of cheese names, but only eight cheese categories. The cheeses in each category have similar attributes such as taste, texture and shelf life.

• Fresh e.g. cottage cheese
• Soft e.g. brie
• Semi-hard e.g. Gouda
• Hard e.g. cheddar
• Blue e.g. Stilton
• Pasta filata e.g. mozzarella
• Processed
• Whey cheeses e.g. ricotta
