The School of Artisan Food

The School of Artisan Food is dedicated to preserving, sharing and developing artisan food production skills.

Courses in all aspects of artisan food production range from half-day taster sessions to a six-month diploma in artisan baking. Staffed and run by experts whose skills are only matched by their passion, its students enjoy an unrivalled learning experience.

The school is housed in Welbeck's former fire stables, dating back to 1870. Training rooms are specially equipped for the teaching of breadmaking, cheesemaking, brewing, butchery, charcuterie and preserving. The environment is serene and inspiring, and thoroughly welcoming.

The School of Artisan Food has earned an international reputation for its exceptional courses and was awarded Best British Cookery School of the Year 2020 at the National Food and Drink Awards.
