Welcome to the vegan side of Leiths!

We’ve seen a wave of demand for vegan classes this year, so we've introduced a new range of exciting sessions for those wishing to eat plant-based meals. 

It's a great time to be vegan in the UK right now, so we've taken the innovation you see in vegan restaurants and distilled it into recipes and skills you can use at home.

Our first entirely vegan class was The Essential Vegan, which is a workshop designed to introduce you to plant-based cooking with key techniques and delicious recipes. 

We're also thrilled to announce the release of our new four-part evening course, The Everyday Vegan, which will help students to invigorate their daily cooking with sessions on baking, nutrition, dinner parties and entertaining.    

Below, you'll find more information on our upcoming vegan classes and courses, along with some vegan recipes (or recipes with vegan options) and cookery books.

For press enquiries, please contact Lily or Jen at marketing@leiths.com or 020 8749 6400.

Please note: Whilst careful measures are taken to ensure our vegan classes are free of animal products, Leiths is not an entirely vegan cookery school. Meat, fish and dairy products are cooked on the premises and animal products are used throughout the school.

The books listed in the shop section below do contain some non-vegan recipes, but many of them are suitable for those following a plant-based diet.

The Essential Vegan - One Day Class

Due to popular demand, we launched our first entirely vegan class in 2017. This hands on workshop will equip you with a range of cooking techniques and recipes to ensure that your plant-based diet is varied and full of delicious flavours.

New dates have just been released!
