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, and often food to take home too (foil containers and bags provided).

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 for lunch, usually with wine or elderflower cordial around a communal table. Classes that do not result in cooking lunch will enjoy a delicious Leiths Mezze style lunch.


What’s included:  

  • Refreshments on arrival
  • A recipe booklet
  • All ingredients provided and weighed out for you in advance
  • Assistance from the Leiths teachers
  • A delicious lunch of your own making, or a Leiths mezze lunch
