Class 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 evening 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 dinner will enjoy a delicious Mediterranean Mezze lunch.
