Discover Italian cuisine in an evening at Leiths. Designed for home-cooks of all levels, this course draws inspiration from various regions of Italy, and teaches some of the classic dishes from the world’s favourite cuisine. 

Learn the art of creating fresh pasta dough from scratch, make pannacotta and amaretti biscuits, shape tortellini, and cook a delicious Italian inspired dinner to impress. Buon appetito!

At Leiths, we teach practical cooking skills and techniques across all our courses and classes, from one-day sessions to professional courses, to equip you with lifelong confidence in the kitchen.

Sample recipes:

  • Tortelloni of ricotta, lemon and parmesan
  • Woman in white salad
  • Pannacotta with scorched clementines and amaretti biscuits

Course 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. Regardless, there is always more than enough food to go around, and often food to take home too.

Your evening will consist of practical cookery in the Leiths kitchens. 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.

At the end of the session, you will sit down and enjoy the dishes you have cooked with the rest of your class, accompanied by a glass of wine or other refreshments.
