If successful students at the cookery school will be able to use produce from right outside their door.
An East Devon agricultural college is looking to create a new cookery school next to its historic kitchen garden.
Bicton College has applied for planning permission from East Devon District Council (EDDC) to convert a café into a cookery school.
Much of the produce used by the proposed cookery school will be grown right outside in the college’s kitchen garden.
Satellite Architects, the college’s planning agent, explained in documents submitted to the council: “We have been asked by the college to design a new cookery school which will facilitate cooking courses and academies.
“The location of this project is adjacent to the existing Kitchen Garden as the intention is to not only to cook the food, but to use as much produce from the garden as possible and in doing so, create and in depth, well rounded experience and education for students.”
Details of the planning application can be found on EDDC’s planning website, www.eastdevon.gov.uk/planning.
