Lytchett Minster Cookery School Shortlisted for Top Industry Award

White Pepper Cookery School in Dorset has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Community Engagement category of the inaugural British Cookery School Awards, which is headline sponsored by Kenwood. The British Cookery School Awards were launched in June of this year to celebrate and honour cookery schools’ hard work and dedication to driving Britain’s passion for cooking good, homemade food.

White Pepper is up against stiff competition from five other cookery schools across the country. Entrants to the Best Community Engagement award had to demonstrate that they were committed to ensuring accessibility for all and encourage a wide selection of their local community to get involved.

Head judge of the British Cookery School Awards, Nigel Barden, said: “It was amazing to get such a good response to the Awards. It was gratifying that such store is set by using local, ethically sourced ingredients and that many establishments are integrated so well into their communities. This is reflected in their on-going relationships with youth clubs, community centres and schools, which provide the opportunity to cook, often for the first time. The range of these awards helps celebrate some remarkable individuals and cookery schools.”

The winners of the British Cookery School Awards’ 14 categories will be announced at the awards event at the Vintners’ Company in central London on Tuesday 13th November. The winners of each category will receive a top-of-the-range Kenwood kitchen appliance, as well as a trophy and the accolade of being a British Cookery School Awards 2012 champion.
