School of Food Logo Small


It is with regret that I must inform you that the School of Food (Thomastown Town of Food CLG) has ceased trading and is permanently closed for business from Friday 22 November 2019.

The School of Food has operated as a commercial venture for the last two years offering the “Modern Skills for Modern Chefs” professional chef training programme. Although unique to the region the School was unable to attract enough students from across the country to become self-sustaining.

On behalf of my fellow Board members I would like to thank the local community, the staff, tutors, the many volunteers involved with the school, and Kilkenny Leader Partnership that supported the School in start up costs and its first year of operations.

Bob Jull – Director
