The School of Food

Formed in partnership by Josh and fellow Bristol chef Adrian Kirikmaa, the School of Food is a unique vocational hospitality training programme for young chefs and restaurateurs of the future. Developed with Weston College the programme offers apprenticeships covering technical skills and all aspects of the industry including HR, finance and management.

The School of Food is designed to help combat a skills shortage in Bristol and the surrounding area. 

Nurturing a passion for cooking and hospitality, The School of Food gives apprentices access to the best kitchens and industry leaders in the South West.

Master classes have been led by esteemed chefs and producers such as Jamie Randall, Head Chef of Adelina Yard; Jan Ostle, chef-owner of Wilson’s and Joe Fowler, sous chef at The Pony & Trap. Rob Howell, Head Chef of Bib Gourmand awarded Root has taught students about veg, and Josh Eggleton himself has given a masterclass on stocks and sauces.

The School of Food has a fresh and forward-thinking approach to cooking and connects students not only with their subject, but with chefs and the most up-to-date ways of thinking about food and ingredients.
