    Summer Preserves and Pickling Course at The School of Artisan Food

    The School of Artisan Food is a deluxe culinary school hidden away in the depths of The Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire.

    I was absolutely delighted to be given the chance to try a course recently and a truly fabulous day was had by all. Exploring the courses online is really simple, and the range on offer is quite spectacular, each covering something you probably wouldn’t learn yourself
