The School of Artisan Food

The School of Artisan Food, Nottinghamshire, is a world-class, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to teaching skills in artisan food production.

The School of Artisan Food is an award-winning charity, dedicated to enthusing and helping people from all walks of life to learn about healthy, sustainable and delicious food. Unique to the UK food industry; a hidden gem of specialist skills and knowledge, state-of-the-art facilities, and a heartfelt belief in the power of healthy, sustainable food.

Founded in 2009, its founder had started a bakery in the courtyard that was to eventually house the school, but it proved very hard to find skilled bakers to make the long-fermentation bread that she was determined to sell. The school was thus created from a wish not to loose 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.

Whether you decide to enrol on their Advanced Diploma in Baking or FDSc in Artisan Food production, or you decide to participate in one of their many short courses, you’ll experience a warm welcome and be among friends.

They offer bursaries and subsidies to make artisan food accessible to as many people as possible; working closely with local schools, colleges, voluntary organisations and social enterprises; offering practical routes into employment in the artisan food sector; preserving traditional methods of food production which might otherwise be lost.
