If you want to save time in the kitchen and perfect your julienne, batons and chiffonade, this is the class for you.

The first lesson in a cook's training is to learn to select, handle and maintain knives. Each knife has a specific purpose for which it is best suited. Learning to use each knife confidently and accurately takes a great deal of practice.

Focusing on vegetable and fruit preparation, you will learn to use the correct knife with confidence, being shown how to chop, slice and dice like a pro in this hands-on workshop.

  • Butternut squash with ginger and tomatoes with lime yoghurt
  • Sweet dill slaw

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.

Your day 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 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
