We’re all for trying out our clients’ wares – and never more so than when there’s delicious food at the end of it!
Sales director Alex Hill and account manager Dan Rawley recently had the great fortune to be invited along to new client the School of Artisan Food’s one-day Italian baking and pizza making course, much to the envy of everyone else in the office.
The course is just one of dozens offered by the School, which – luckily for novice baker Dan – caters for all levels of expertise, from complete cooking beginners to master chefs.
As its name suggests, the School, founded in 2009, promotes authentic artisan food and traditional skills that may otherwise be lost.
The School even issues diplomas in artisan baking, and its food business startup course prepares bakers to set up their own businesses after graduating.
Many students come from overseas to take part in the courses, some of which last up to six months.
The School of Artisan Food experience starts when you enter the beautiful Welbeck Estate in the heart of Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Forest where the School is based.
Dating back to the 12th century and with royal connections galore, the Estate provides a breathtaking first impression.
