Tideswell School of Food is Open! Today’s opening event went ahead despite the builders not being fully finished (snow got in their way!) and the icy weather.

Tideswell Male Voice Choir superbly entertained us, and the church bell ringers rang out a magnificent peal at midday as Naimh and Amy from Bishop Pursglove School cut the ceremonial six foot sausage (supplied by Tideswell’s butcher Phil Gibbs).  A large crowd of villagers and suppliers were gathered to watch, drink some bubbly stuff and then have a look round the new facility.

Reaction was 100% positive as our two chefs Trevor and Otto delivered dish after dish of tasty food for all to sample whilst Lisa and Judy beavered away in the commercial kitchen turning out the best flapjack I’ve ever tasted!

Thanks to everyone who turned out yesterday and made the day as special as it was.  Now we have to start selling courses so don’t forget to mention us in all your Christmas cards and email messages.  We’re Open check us out (tideswellschooloffood.co.uk

Well almost.  The snow has put us behind schedule a wee bit but some stirling efforts from the building team and the TT team has seen masses of progress this week.  Still lots to do over the next couple of days but we’re almost ready for the GRAND OPENING.

You are all invited to join us for the official opening of the Tideswell School of Food at The Courtyard from 11.30 onwards on Monday 6th December.  That’s this Monday coming.  Food and drink (of course) and a chance to have a look round this superb facility.  Don’t be shy, your all invited.
