Veggie Victory!

Demuths Vegetarian Cookery School voted UK’s Best City Cookery School

Having successfully competed against hundreds of entries, Demuths Vegetarian Cookery School won Best City Cookery School at the UK Cookery School Awards 2012.

Rachel Demuth, founder of The Vegetarian Cookery School, said, “We are thrilled – it’s wonderful for the school but also great for Bath to be recognised as a top foodie destination. We would like to thank all our supporters for standing behind us.”

Since 2001 The Vegetarian Cookery School has been running an exciting and varied selection of courses which reflect Rachel’s passion for travel, fresh ingredients and exotic flavours. Although the school focuses on vegan and vegetarian cooking, it also attracts many people who eat meat.

“Our courses have wide appeal because we design them around a type of cuisine,” says Rachel. “From five star vegan cuisine to aromatic Thai curries and fabulous world street food, the school offers something for everyone’s taste.”

For many visitors, the school’s location is a major drawcard. Situated in the heart of the city, the grand Georgian building offers outstanding views of the Bath Abbey and Parade Gardens.

“Being in our kitchen is awe inspiring because it puts these famous landmarks within reach and makes you feel as if they are part of your own backyard.”

The awards were hosted by Looking to Cook, an independent body that reviews cookery schools and courses in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

According to their website, “Cookery schools are one of the most vibrant and exciting sectors in British food today. As the independent experts in the field, Looking to Cook thought it was time to give recognition to those schools that are leading the way and offering something that little bit special.”

The judging panel included Thomasina Miers, winner of MasterChef and founder of Wahaca Restaurants; Nick Wyke, founder of Looking to Cook, Celia Brooks Brown, cookery author and founder of London’s Gastrotours.
