The School of Artisan Food


The School of Artisan Food is what it says on the hessian tote bag – a school that focuses on hand-crafted, traditionally made, authentic artisan produce. This is not where you go to learn to make a white sauce, but rather where you’ll learn to make the bread onto which perhaps you’ll spread the white sauce, the ham that might follow, and the cheese that completes this lovingly made croque monsieur. Yes there are more entry-level courses that are every bit as thorough – preserving and pickling and beginners’ patisserie – but the specialty here is the serious stuff: butchery, cheesemaking, brewing and bread baking. Courses for food nerds, but also for those considering a career in food and wanting to do it properly. These are taught with an astonishing level of expertise and in some of the most beautiful classrooms and kitchens you’ll find – housed in a set of converted fire stables in the middle of Sherwood Forest. Vaut la visite, for sure.
