Summary Healthy and Delicious Entertaining

Join us for a class that will teach you to create healthy, delicious and stress-free dishes perfect for entertaining at your next dinner party or family gathering. Acquire tips and techniques from experienced Leiths chefs and cook a menu designed to be prepared in advance, helping you minimise time spent in the kitchen and maximise time spent with your guests.

With a focus on presentation and plating as well as health, guests are certain to be impressed with both the look and the taste of dishes, as well as the effortlessness with which you serve it all up. Once mastered, these recipes can be adapted and tweaked to suit midweek meals and elegant dinners alike, and your healthy repertoire will be filled with new ideas. This menu can be made suitable for vegans, so please let us know at the time of booking if this is required.

Typical recipes may include:

  • Baby beetroot, pistachio oil and goat cheese salad
  • Chermoula salmon with freekah and yoghurt
  • Citrus fruit salad with a lime caramel

Please note, recipes may change.

Class structure

Cooking with your classmates is an integral part of your Leiths experience. You will cook some of your recipes in pairs, and some independently – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too.

Your day will comprise of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and, in the case of visiting chefs, their individual teaching style.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be eating the food that you have cooked during your class for lunch, usually with wine or elderflower cordial around a communal table. If your class does not involve cooking lunch you will enjoy delicious sharing platters prepared by the school.
