TV's Rosemary Shrager enlists Mark Wilkinson for new cookery school

By KBBDaily on 19th February 2013 - 09:30am

I'm A Celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager turned to furniture maker Mark Wilkinson to create a working kitchen to form a centrepiece for her new Tunbridge Wells cookery school, which is due to open in the spring in the Old Corn Exchange.

Mark Wilkinson Furniture, which has a showroom in the high street, designed bespoke 'zones', adapting its Cook's kitchen, to form a large display zone and 10 learning islands.

The process was so successful Shrager and Wilkinson have agreed a five-year business deal that will include events such as cooking days at the school for clients and journalists.

Shrager said: “As soon as I met Mark Wilkinson I knew we were on the same wavelength and he would provide me with the perfect kitchen and he has. The Cook’s style is simple, practical and yet aspirational, and we have achieved a beautifully designed area for students at the school to enjoy and work in.”
