Knowle West Cookery School | Cultivating a Community
The face of the culinary arts world has changed. Chefs have become household names and cookery shows are taking television by storm - which has made becoming a chef, a career that was once considered undesirable, one of the fastest growing professions in the country.
This facility will educate local people how to grow fresh produce, teach them how to cook in community kitchens and allow them to make their own labelled food products to sell in the local food chain. It will become the heart of the community, and a place where visitors can both purchase and consume food at different stages along the food production process.
The building distinguishes itself in the field of culinary education by taking advantage of its suburban rural setting, to narrate a story about the process of making a meal from “field to fork”. This institute brings the production of food and our consumption of it - under one roof for the visitor to understand.
