Ameena Nur – Armed with a degree in Illustration, Ameena left Duncan of Jordanstone, College of Art & Design in 2012. Since then she has worked for various companies, mostly taking on responsibilities that didn’t correspond to her degree. Two years ago, she decided to merge her love of sculpture and food and headed to The School of Artisan Food. Since graduating with an Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking, Ameena has launched her micro-bakery in Scotland; Jeju’s Bakehouse- a venture supported by The Prince’s Trust. She aims to draw people together for their love of good food and to teach her skills to the next generation of bakers.

Katy Fenwick – After ‘accidentally’ finding a job on Selfridges’ cheese counter after university, Katy moved quickly to run the cheese counter at the Manchester store. Following this, she found her niche amongst the best of British farmhouse cheese at Neal’s Yard Dairy. What began as a ‘quick fix’ temporary job has since become an obsession. Katy has a wealth of dairy and British cheese knowledge which she shares through her teaching at The School of Artisan Food.

Farmer Sharp – Having grown up on a farm in Cumbria, Andrew’s enthusiasm for artisanal butchery began at the age of 13 when he worked for a butcher who had his own farm and abattoir. During his career, he has run his own British Retail Consortium approved cutting plant selling Herdwick lamb and mutton, Galloway beef, naturally reared pink veal and air dried mutton to the UK, the EU and Hong Kong. He is a founding member of the Mutton Renaissance Campaign, inspired by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.

Chocolate Bread
Chocolate Bread
The base for this delicious chocolate bread is one of my favourite bread doughs, it is enriched with eggs and butter to make a brioche style loaf.  With a little adaptation the recipe can be used for burger buns and wonderful savoury breads too.  I want to show you how easy it can be to make bread, come and join me for this workshop and you could be eating a slice of this for tea.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF ARTISAN FOOD

Based on the beautiful Welbeck Estate in North Nottinghamshire, The School is a registered charity dedicated to teaching skills in all aspects of sustainable and artisan food production.

From one-day taster sessions to advanced level masterclasses, courses cover subjects including baking and patisserie, cheesemaking, butchery and charcuterie, preserving and pickling, food business start-up, chocolate making and ice cream making.

For those wishing to become professional artisan bakers, the School offers a six-month, full-time Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking which is an externally accredited Food and Drink Qualification (FDQ). This course equips students with the essential baking skills and business knowledge needed to launch a successful artisan bakery, work in the baking industry or manage a bakery enterprise.

As a charity, the School works with voluntary organisations, schools and colleges, and community groups to provide opportunities to inspire and teach artisan food production skills.
