Baking has always been a passion for Halima Hamza, so it was a dream come true when she won a scholarship to The School of Artisan Food.
“I have been given a big opportunity. I am spending time with students with different backgrounds and different age groups and sharing our stories and recipes. We are all passionate about artisan food. My head is spinning with new knowledge from the tutors here. I am living in a lodge within Welbeck estate – just two minutes away from The School of Artisan Food. I can’t believe how lucky I am! Before I was a bit lost, I did not know what I wanted to do, but now the vision is so clear to me. I visualise myself as a baker enjoying making a healthy artisan bread. I have been offered this great opportunity."
The School of Artisan Food is a not-for-profit organisation and raises bursary money for diploma students that otherwise would not be able to afford the training. Read on to find out more.
