Overview

Leiths School of Food and Wine was founded by Prue Leith and Caroline Waldegrave in 1975 and is considered to be one of the best cookery schools in the world. On the famous Leiths Diploma, students follow Prue’s ethos of delicious, unfussy cooking, where beautiful ingredients come first. They are taught the scientific theory behind the cookery process and the demonstrations are interactive with lots of dishes to taste! In the kitchen, students master a comprehensive range of skills that will allow them to thrive in any culinary environment. Skills are repeated and reinforced, and students receive daily feedback from teachers. Alternatively, enthusiasts can opt for a single cooking session during the week, in the evening or on a Saturday. These focus on particular cuisines, from Peruvian to classic French, or particular skills like making bread or pasta. In essence, if you wish to learn a food related skill Leiths is one of the very best places to start.
