Nick Wyke, Head Judge and Times digital food and drink editor, commented “The third annual UK Cookery School of the Year Awards, a nationwide competition showcasing the best work in cookery schools, announces its 2014 winners today.
The awards are run in association with Tabasco Pepper Sauce to highlight outstanding achievements in an industry that teaches thousands of us to become more creative in the kitchen. As in the previous two years, choosing an overall winner from shortlists featuring such talented and hard working schools has been a bit like trying to cook a souffle blindfolded.”
Best Day Cookery Course 2014
Winner: Feathered and Furred, White Pepper Cookery School, Dorset
Runner-up: Fish and Seafood class, Food at 52 , London
‘Courses are so thoughtfully crafted by Luke Stuart and his team down at the White Pepper Cookery School. Even the name of his Feathered and Furred class piques your interest and the course is gripping from start to finish. It comprises active forays in the Dorset countryside, hands-on acquisition of new skills back in the kitchen and is rounded off with a true field-to-fork meal. Food at 52 offers a similar ‘holistic’ experience in the city, the highlight of which is often the collaborative, dinner party finale in its cool kitchen.’
White Pepper Cookery School were also finalists in the following categories in these UK awards:
Best Cookery Tutor. Best Cookery School Website.
