How pleasing it is to see the continued success of the Ashburton Cookery School in Devon. Once again the school has been awarded Cookery School of the Year 2014 by the Food & Travel magazine.
Originally sited in Ashburton town, tucked under the protective folds of Dartmoor National Park, The school occupied two beautiful Georgian buildings.
Due to the growing success of the business Stella West-Harling and her family took the giant step of faith by designing and building a new, purpose-built school, on the edge of town.
Immense thought and planning was put into developing the environment for creativity and success. The stone and wood clad building would be as in keeping with a Swiss or Finnish hillside as in a Devon Stannery town.
Very high levels of equipment and finishes encourage students to enjoy the experience of learning new culinary skills. The number of accolades that Darren Hosegrove, head tutor and director, are collecting is testament to the quality of the whole operation.
Our congratulations go to our friends at Ashburton Cookery School – a real asset to the South West.
