This advanced cooking class has been created for the keen, confident home cook who is looking to enhance their skills to a higher level. In each class, we’ll focus on key techniques used in advanced cookery.
On our game cookery day, you will learn how to salt bake vegetables, how to roll and plate carpaccio, how to spatch-cock, and the roasting and carving of game birds, all to culminate in a delicious menu of:
- Venison carpaccio, Jerusalem artichoke and pickled blackberry
- Roast partridge with braised lentils
This menu will change with the season.
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 day will comprise of a mixture of practical cookery and demonstrations performed by the teacher 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.

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.
