THE COOKERY SCHOOL
The gourmet heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells can be found in the Lower Pantiles - the home of Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School. The School is housed within The Corn Exchange, a beautiful three-storey Regency building, with a Domestic and Professional School, event spaces for Private Celebrations and Corporate Functions. Every aspect of the School has been personally designed to Rosemary’s exacting specifications. No expense has been spared to provide students with both up-to-the-minute kitchen technology and luxurious style. We are delighted to present a new addition to the School - our luxurious, new suite on the second floor, The Dining Room, perfect for private celebrations and corporate functions.
A hand built and homestyle kitchen made by Mark Wilkinson Furniture, occupies an airy, open-plan space on the first floor, with an enormous demonstration island and fully equipped work stations with Miele appliances for the students. It is a kitchen built to the highest specifications, designed to inspire home cooks of all abilities. For those booked on courses that include lunch, a refectory table seating 20 ensures that all the students can sit down together in comfort.
The Chef’s Kitchen, designed by Salix, Bonnet, Fosters and Hobart, will provide an exciting and comprehensive training ground for those with ambitions to become a professional chef or to work within the food industry. There will be a number of apprenticeships available each year, leading to nationally recognised qualifications.
