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.

What could be more quintessentially British than afternoon tea? We love to celebrate tradition here at Leiths, and we know you come to us to explore new recipes and trends, so we’ve created an afternoon tea class which melds tradition with creativity.

Our brand new Ultimate Afternoon Tea class incorporates all the sweet and savoury treats you’d expect to see on your three-tiered cake stand and gives them an inventive twist!

Working in our new patisserie kitchen, you’ll learn tried-and-tested Leiths techniques and create classic British treats, adding new creative flavours. Then sit down together for afternoon tea and enjoy your delicious efforts.
