Local Cookery School ‘Britain’s Best’

By Community reporter Oliver Wu

A Knowle West cookery school has just scooped the award for Britain’s Best Community Cookery School 2012.

Square Food Foundation based at The Park received the top vote in an online poll hosted by an independent review site for cookery courses, Looking to Cook.

The school’s Company Representative Claire Allen said: “Square Food Foundation is so excited to have been awarded Best Community Cookery School in the UK …

“Receiving an award like this brings it home to us that what we’re doing is important and that people do benefit from learning to cook.

“We’re even more motivated to get out there and work with as many hard to reach groups and individuals as we possibly can … We’ve got a busy few months lined up working with schools, community groups and charitable organisations and we’re looking forward to sustaining this into 2013 and beyond. ”

Square Food Foundation has been offering courses to local people of all ages and abilities for the past 15 years. It aims to ‘make food and cooking more accessible, more fun and more part of everyday living.’
