About

The School of Artisan Food has passion, expertise and understanding - all under one roof.

Their courses are designed with you in mind, whether you join them for a day to learn how to make chocolate truffles, or for a Diploma on your way to an exciting career as a baker, butcher or cheesemaker.

From its historic listed building with state-of-the-art facilities, an award-winning team of practitioners will guide you through the fascinating world of artisan food, as you master the skills of baking, brewing, butchery, cheesemaking, preserving and much more.


Become a star baker at the UK's only not-for-profit school dedicated to artisan food. Set in the grounds of the historic Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire, get a taste for lovingly-crafted artisan food on one of the array of short courses on offer.

Stay nearby at one of the luxury B&Bs, and pay a visit to the Welbeck Farm Shop, recently named one of the UK’s top destination farm shops. While here, sample produce straight from the Estate, including Stichelton cheese, handmade chocolates and scrumptious sourdough bread.

Mouth-watering courses coming up include British pies, Christmas baking, artisan patisserie and the ‘pig in a day’ introduction to butchery and meat preparation.
