Win a Scholarship on our professional Cook’s Certificate in Food and Wine



One lucky person has a chance to win a free scholarship place on our professional six-week course, Cook’s Certificate in Food and Wine. We are looking for someone who has a foodie dream with a social goal and needs help to realise their project. The course is based in London and starts on 7th March 2022.


With a value of £7750, it’s a full-time course that sets participants up for entry into a professional kitchen. It’s a great opportunity for someone who has a socially driven idea but perhaps not the funds to support their mission. Apply by midday Monday 21st February 2022 for a chance to win.


Sustainability is at the core of everything that we do and we see education in cooking as being  vitally important in furthering this. From this base our trainees will learn how to run a sustainable kitchen, reduce waste and work with the best and most ethically sourced ingredients.


During the six weeks in the Cookery School kitchen our students learn all the requisite skills to enable them to become participating members of a restaurant brigade.


Ultimately, we require the student who is given the scholarship to share their knowledge and passion with others.
