Description

The School of Artisan Food is based on the Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire in the heart of Sherwood Forest. It was set up as a not for profit organisation by a group of food enthusiasts who recognised the need to train new generations in the artisan food methods in danger of being lost or displaced by industrial food production.

The school opened its doors in 2009 to teach practical food production skills as well as to research methods and traditions and explore their relevance today. Read more »
