Bespoke events, team building, private parties and tuition

Learning to create new dishes and develop new skills as group is a great way to spend time together, at Leiths we’re expert at bringing groups of people together to cook, either cooking alone, in pairs or many more as a ‘brigade’, we’ve been doing it since 1975.

Join us for a morning, afternoon or evening of hands-on cooking in our kitchens taught by Leiths professional teachers; followed by the enjoyment of eating your collective creativity together.

Our three core options Sharing Feast, Bistrot and Fine Dining feature seasonal menus and are designed for group sizes of 16. Alternatively, take it off-menu and tell us about your requirements on numbers and needs from couples upwards, and we’ll create a bespoke class with private tuition with a menu especially for you. Please note, we cater for most dietary requirements, including vegans and gluten free.

All courses are taught by Leiths professionally trained staff, ratio of 1 teacher to 8 students.

Prices are based on groups of 16+ people. We welcome smaller groups however there is a minimum spend required. Please call our Events team for further information on 020 8749 6400, or email

Who we cater to


There is no better way to strengthen a team and reward your colleagues than working together in a kitchen. The collaborative nature of cooking will enrich your team long after you've left the kitchen.

Corporate Clients

Whether you're forging a new business partnership or simply thanking your clients for their business, you're certain to impress if you invite them to a cookery masterclass at the world renowned Leiths School of Food and Wine.

Parent and Child

Quality time with your children is precious, which is why we’ve arranged a number of tailor made family cookery classes for parents and children. You’ll create memories as your children learn an essential life skill.

Special Occasions

Whether it’s a big birthday, or a gathering before impending nuptials, a cooking party at Leiths is a great way to celebrate together.

Sustainable eating

We’re a bunch of nature lovers here at Leiths, so we’re keen to minimise our impact on the planet. From seasonal venison to armfuls of just-picked herbs, our ingredients are fresh, thoughtfully sourced and of the very best quality.

We do our bit to minimise food waste too. We donate as much leftover food as possible to City Harvest, a charity delivering food to the most vulnerable people in London. Whatever remains is collected and turned into biofuel.
