Food school to host brewing masterclass

THE Edinburgh School of Food & Wine has announced that its next ‘masterclass’ event will take place at Stewart Brewing in Edinburgh later this month.

The event will include a discussion with brewery boss Steve Stewart as well as food matching with the brewery’s range of beers.
Tickets to the evening, which will take place on Thursday April 26 at 7pm, cost £35 each or £60 for two and can be booked through the school’s website (
Stewart Brewing produces a range of cask and bottled beers, including bottled beers Hollyrood, Embra and St Giles, and cask brews Edinburgh No.3, Pentland IPA and Copper Cascade.
The business was established in 2004 by husband and wife team Steve and Jo Stewart and has since built a reputation in Edinburgh and across Scotland for the quality of its beers.
Several of the brewery’s portfolio, including Edinburgh Gold and Hollyrood, have picked up trophies at various award schemes.
This month also sees the return of the Edinburgh School of Food & Wine’s Kids Cookery course.
Running from Tuesday 10 to Friday 13 April, the course teaches kids aged between 8 and 15 years of age about basic cookery, including the importance of fresh food and healthy ingredients.
Tickets cost £40 per day or £160 for all four days.
Next month the school will host its first ever ‘introduction to butchery’ class, providing a detailed break-down of how to “prepare all manner of birds and beasts”.
The school is marketing the event as “a great way to get more out of your ingredients, as well as learning a key skill”.
The introduction to butchery class will take place on Saturday May 5, with tickets priced at £120 each.
