Last Sunday, I made a “virtual return to the kitchen” as part of the online Northern Food and Drink Festival.
Many of you will have seen that I returned to The Art School last week for the first time since we closed for lockdown. I was filled with mixed emotions on my return to the restaurant as I took the first practical steps on our journey to reopening. Of course, we still do not know when that will be and what guidelines we will need to observe, but when it does happen, we will be ready.
Our industry is slowly coming to terms with the challenges it faces, we are no different at the Art School as we consider the potential implications on the number of covers and days we may open. But we will be back.
Many of you have already taken advantage of our retail offering on our online shop as we’ve made a number of local deliveries. This has been a great source of comfort so thank you for all your support.
Last weekend, I swapped Sugnall Street for Askew Towers for a Live demonstration for The Northern Food & Drink Virtual Festival.
If you missed it, you can still watch the demonstration on Facebook.
