The Cooking School Highly Commended for “Taste of Yorkshire” At the White Rose Award 2012

The Cooking School at Dean Clough narrowly missed out on the Taste of Yorkshire Award at last night’s Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards, but was highly commended by the judges as a leading light in encouraging people to take an interest in food and cooking within Yorkshire.

The Cooking School opened in 2009 and since then has gone from strength to strength. Director of The Cooking School Matthew Benson-Smith is thrilled with the result ” We have worked so hard since opening to provide an unrivalled experience for our customers and we are committed to customer service, local produce and innovative marketing. Big congratulations go out to the winners at the awards and everyone who was shortlisted in our competitive category.”
