Join us at Leiths for a recipe-packed day and learn the ins and outs of mastering meat cookery. In this class, you’ll be taught about a variety of meat cuts and cooking techniques, covering which method is best for certain cuts to bring out succulence and flavour.
You’ll learn the different ways of tenderising meat, rendering, French trimming, the benefits of brining and receive a demonstration on the sous vide method of cooking. This class will also deepen your understanding on the structure of meat and how to adapt your cooking skills accordingly. At the end of the class, you’ll leave with an informed knowledge of meat cookery and a repertoire of delicious recipes to make at home.
- Slow cooked goat curry
- Rump of lamb with salsa verde
- French trimmed pork chop with cider sauce
Menu may be subject to change
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.
Around 1pm, you will break for lunch and enjoy the dishes you have cooked with the rest of your class, accompanied by a glass of wine or other refreshments. In some classes, such as skills classes, where dishes may not be appropriate for lunch, a mezze lunch will be provided.
