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



One lucky person has a chance to win a place on our professional six-week course, Cook’s Certificate in Food and Wine, completely free of charge. 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 6th September 2021.


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 initiative their mission. Apply by midday Wednesday 1st September for a chance to win.


Sustainability is at the core of everything that we do and we see education in cooking as incredibly important in developing this, now and for future generations. From this base our trainees will learn how to run a sustainable kitchen, reduce waste, work with the best and most ethically sourced ingredients, alongside learning necessary culinary skills. Ultimately, we want students who will engage and pass on their knowledge and passion to others.
