The cookery school beat off stiff competition from a shortlist of four other leading cookery schools, including Leiths School of Food and Wine to win the top prize which was voted for by the readers of Food and Travel Magazine.
‘More than 20,000 votes were cast by our readers to nominate the best of the best across the food and travel industries and so we have thoroughly deserved winners,’ said Alex Mead, editor of Food and Travel.
The Managing Director of Ashburton Cookery School, Dominic O’Nions says that the school is delighted to win such a prestigious award, "The whole Ashburton team is over the moon to have won especially against such quality competition. We promise our customers an 'Inspirational Cookery Course' and we have a fantastic team here that work incredibly hard to deliver on that. We have developed a loyal following of customers who love cooking with us and we've grown from humble beginnings to become one of the most popular cookery schools in the country seeing around 5000 keen home cooks and aspiring chefs last year. We are really grateful that so many food lovers voted for us and feel honoured to receive such recognition."
Ashburton Cookery School was one of a trio of award winners from Devon which included Gidleigh Park as well as the Devon based wine writer, Susy Atkins.
