Food Education

Nottinghamshire is a food lover’s paradise but your visit does not have to begin with the finished product. Whether you want to learn the art of butchery, impress your dinner guests with delectable dishes or bake the perfect loaf, you will find an experience or course to suit you.  

With its state-of the art facilities and expert tuition, the School of Artisan Food is a must for anyone who wants to hone their culinary skills. Housed in a former fire stable on the beautiful Welbeck estate in north Nottinghamshire, the renowned school offers classes in chocolate making, butchery, preserves and more. Learn how to make your own patisserie or sourdough on one of the baking courses or find out what it takes to set up your own artisan food business.

At The Clockhouse Café and Tearoom near Southwell award-winning chef Edward Halls is only too happy to share his expertise. Edward, who has worked in Michelin-starred kitchens alongside the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing, runs regular demonstrations covering everything from mouth-watering sauces to pastry. At nearby Manor Farm you can also bake tempting cakes and bread in a relaxed rural setting.

Anyone who has visited Danielle Gotheridge’s cake shop in Nottingham will no doubt have been impressed by her magical creations but did you know that she also runs courses in the art of cake design? The sessions are perfect for groups and by the end you will be decorating cakes like a professional.

Meanwhile, coffee lovers can take a barista course with artisan roasters 200 Degrees Coffee. Using freshly-roasted beans you will be introduced to the secrets of latte art and espresso extraction. There are courses available for home baristas and people thinking of opening their own coffee shop, as well as those already working in the industry.

There are few things more comforting than a big bowl of pasta - and it is even better when it is homemade. Carluccio’s in Nottingham and West Bridgford has a host of pasta making classes, along with opportunities to learn about wine, gnocchi and mushrooms.

If you have always wanted to brew your own beer or are thinking of embarking on a career in brewing then make sure you take a look at some of the courses on offer around Nottinghamshire. Further details are available here.
