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


A warm welcome to the home of all things healthy at Leiths!

Since Prue Leith and Caroline Waldegrave first opened our doors in 1975, Leiths has been all about fresh, unfussy food; whatever we’re cooking, flavour comes first.

It’s definitely peak season for fitness, but at Leiths, we believe in doing things a little differently. Firstly, we say no to guilt. We all needed to let our hair down over the festive season - it was good for the soul and we won’t apologise for that twelfth pig-in-blanket!

Secondly, we focus on sustainable change. This is a brilliant time to learn exactly what our body needs to feel full and stay nourished. Thirdly, we keep things delicious! We believe that moreish, nutrient-rich food can become so appealing, our cravings for empty calories fall away naturally.

If you’d like to learn how to cook nutritiously for the whole year, give one of our healthy cooking classes a try. We cater for vegan, gluten free and more, and we’d promise it’ll be enjoyable.

If you’d like to learn a little more about the science of nutrition - whilst cooking mouthwatering recipes and developing your own menus - don’t miss our flagship healthy cooking course, Nutrition in Culinary Practice.

As you can probably tell, we love food at Leiths...healthy and otherwise! Our library is stocked with the latest cookbooks from Amelia Freer, Jo Pratt and Green Kitchen Stories. Our teachers scout out new vegan restaurants and paleo recipe boxes. The latest food science is hotly debated over morning coffee - it’s just part of the process!

We take great pride in helping our students develop new skills, understanding and flavour combinations, and hope to see you very soon.
