The School of Artisan Food is an award-winning, not-for-profit school dedicated to inspiring and helping people from all walks of life to learn about food.

The School of Artisan Food was founded in 2009 by Alison Swan Parente, from a wish to preserve traditional artisan food skills, to teach a new generation of artisan food producers, to promote alternatives to highly processed food, and to think about all aspects of good food. 

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Welbeck Estate at the edge of Sherwood Forest, The School of Artisan Food offers a wide range of hands-on courses taught by world-class tutors, from bread to charcuterie, cheesemaking to patisserie and more, with courses ranging from a half day short course to a full BSc (Hons) degree.

By working with partners, the School is able to offer a number of bursaries in order to make artisan food accessible to as many people as possible, and works closely with local schools, colleges, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. It also offers practical routes into employment in the artisan food sector and preserves traditional methods of food production which might otherwise be lost.

Above all, at The School of Artisan Food hopes to change lives for the better – encouraging confidence, raising aspirations, and improving attitudes to food.
