Due to the coronavirus outbreak Leiths has made the difficult decision to cancel all planned courses (except the Intermediate Certificate Assessments and our online courses) until the 14th April. In these exceptional circumstances all students who have booked places on our courses will be offered the opportunity to cancel or reschedule their course. If you are currently in the process of taking a multi-part course, you will be offered new dates to complete the course later in the year. Of course we will be dealing with a high volume of calls and emails and we thank you for your understanding and patience during this unsettling time. We look forward to cooking with you at Leiths in the near future.


I Reason one

Our courses are never dumbed down. Here at Leiths we have a strong belief in the importance of solid cooking skills. We will help you master techniques you will use for a lifetime.

II Reason two

On the other hand, we are the opposite of stuffy. From Street Food to Peruvian cuisine, we’re continually out and about, exploring new food trends and incorporating them into our course programme.

III Reason three

Our kitchens are the business. Enjoy the experience of learning in professional style kitchens with top-of-the-range equipment, from Magimix blenders to state of the art Gaggenau ovens.

IV Reason four

Our ingredients are fresh, thoughtfully sourced and the very best quality.

V Reason five

We teach the individual. On our diploma course, there will be no chef shouting at the class, you will follow an individual learning plan. This philosophy extends to our enthusiast classes, where we take pleasure in meeting individuals and solving their conundrums!

VI Reason six

Our teachers are wonderful. People write this on our feedback forms time and time again. Whether you learn from Atul Kochhar’s expertise or Angela Malik’s unbridled enthusiasm, you will be entertained, challenged and supported.

VII Reason seven

We’re known as the best and you’ll find our graduates in the top position rights across the food industry. They write for food magazines, contribute to cookery shows, lead restaurant teams and launch food companies. We’re incredibly proud of them – and they often offer great opportunities to our students.
