Due to the coronavirus outbreak Leiths has made the difficult decision to cancel all planned courses (except our online courses) until the end of May. 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.


...and all through the land, keen cooks were preparing, with Leiths guide in hand. Jewelled red cabbage was cooked on the stove, mulled red wine laced with orange and clove.

Honey-glazed carrots were ready to rock; a rich Turkey gravy was made with fresh stock. Carving knives sharpened, they all went to bed, to dream of the home-made banquet ahead.

The very next morning, all kitchens were calm; Leiths' step-by-step guide prevented alarm. And in every dining room, merry and bright, juicy bronze Turkeys were carved with delight.

The meat was so tender, the stuffing so tasty, the rush for second helpings was really quite hasty! With plates cleared away, a hush filled each room; as puddings were flamed to a chorus of oohs!

After the meal, with everyone sated, one chief cook was feeling...rather elated. "I thought I'd be frazzled, that I'd feel the strain, but with Leiths it is easy...break out the champagne!"

If you want your meal to be the bees knees, read on and we'll help you achieve it with ease! We've canapés too, and a great vegan pie; flapjacks for Rudolph, and cocktails to try.

It's all tried-and-tested at our cooking school, to help you and your kin have a delicious yule!

We have also launched our Leiths Advent Calendar! So stay tuned for foodie inspiration, recipes and prizes being revealed each day.
