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.


Summary One Pot Cooking with Alan Rosenthal


  • Sat 4 Jul 2020   10.00 - 14.30
  • Sat 17 Oct 2020   10.00 - 14.30

Join Alan Rosenthal for our ultimate masterclass in one-pot cookery, where zingy flavours and fresh colours and textures rule!

You’ll cook everything from a gorgeous Ghanaian chicken stew (this spicy and rich dish doesn’t sound like much...until you take a bite), to an authentic Portuguese seafood dish packed with juicy mussels and good enough to be served to locals in the Algarve.

Whether you're cooking for the family or making meals for one, these recipes are so effortless and practical. Several can easily be frozen so you always have a hearty meal ready to go - all with very little washing up!

Happily, practicality doesn’t mean compromise; Alan uses chef’s tricks, imaginative flavour combinations and beautiful ingredients to create one-pot meals that are fresh, full of interesting colours and textures, and completely moreish.

Alan trained at Leiths before launching his own one-pot meal company. He started selling his stewed! pots at farmers' markets, before expanding to stock the shelves of Budgens, Harvey Nichols and a host of other national retailers.

He then went on to write a cookbook, Ultimate One-Pot dishes, sharing 80 one-pot recipes from all over the world. Alan will teach you how to cook his favourite recipes to perfection, with lots of practical tips to ensure they become firm favourites in your weekly repertoire.

Typical recipes may include:

  • Lamb with Tomatoes, Olives and Anchovies
  • Cataplana (Portuguese Seafood Stew)
  • Mushroom Stew with Thyme and Feta
  • Ghanaian Chicken Stew
  • Chicken and Prawn Jambalaya

Please note, recipes may change.

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

Please call the school to discuss any relevant allergies with a member of staff. You can read our full policy on allergies and dietary restrictions here.
