Exeter Cookery School, due to open in a converted 1930s warehouse on the city’s historic Quayside, has announced a key collaboration with luxury kitchen and bathroom showroom Sapphire Spaces to install a beautifully hand-crafted Bulthaup kitchen, installed with the finest Gaggenau appliances. Following extensive research of the best kitchens available, the exciting new culinary venture’s founders, Jim and Lucy Fisher, chose this winning combination to offer private and corporate cookery course participants a most luxurious experience.
Synonymous with high end kitchens and bathrooms, Sapphire Spaces was a clear front-runner as the luxury showroom brings to the relationship cutting-edge design and a high-calibre, personalised service. It is also the exclusive South West showroom of Bulthaup, a highly respected name among leading architects and designers. Established in 1949 and inspired by the Bauhaus movement, the Bulthaup brand exudes confidence and success and reflects timeless, effortless style – and in turn will provide an ideal backdrop for Exeter Cookery School’s range of culinary courses. Through Sapphire Spaces Jim and Lucy have also procured an illustrious partnership with Gaggenau, manufacturer of some of the finest, most innovative kitchen appliances in the world.
Jim comments: “We have been in serious talks with a number of brilliant kitchen suppliers and manufactures, but we decided that the collaboration with Sapphire Spaces, Bulthaup and Gaggenau will take Exeter Cookery School to new heights. Since holding our pre-launch event at Sapphire in 2015, we have hosted several pop-up events there and cooking on Gaggenau appliances has been a dream. We wanted to give that same luxury experience to all our cookery course participants.”
Mark Newbery from Sapphire Spaces comments: “We are very excited to be working with Jim and Lucy to create a stand-out kitchen for their new venue. We are passionate about collaborating with businesses that share our core values of exquisite design featuring cutting edge technology. Exeter Cookery School will also act as a showcase of what we can achieve at the heart of the vibrant Quayside.”
Exeter Cookery School is now due to launch in the spring, just after the Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink. The delayed opening date is due to an extended installation schedule and the complex nature of working with transforming a historic Listed building into a state-of-the-art cookery school. However, with the huge level of interest in the new venture, and the growing popularity of this likeable duo, there is already a growing waiting list of people wishing to undertake expert tuition at Exeter Cookery School.
