Honour for artisans

THE first students to complete Britain’s only advanced qualification in artisan food production have been honoured at their Welbeck Estate centre.

The next generation of bakers, butchers and cheesemakers have all been learning their trade at Welbeck’s School of Artisan Food and completed their studies in July 2010.

Many of this first intake of students have already taken new jobs within the artisan food industry, while others are in the process of setting up their own businesses.
