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. Whatever the ratio, 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.

Allergies and dietary restrictions

We are happy to make adjustments where possible. However, some classes are unsuitable for people with particular intolerances as the menu would need to be completely different. We need 10 days’ notice to be able to properly check the class and adjust the order accordingly. Please read our full policy on allergies and dietary restrictions here.
