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.
Leiths is an industry-leading cookery school offering professional chef diplomas, enthusiast courses and online cooking courses.
Create a delicious fresh street food platter containing spicy pork meatballs, summer rolls and a fragrant dipping sauce. Sit and enjoy your food with the other guests.

Street food often reflects the traditions and local culture of a place, with the flavours and textures of similar looking foods varying completely depending on where you are in the world, based on the difference in available spices and raw ingredients from country to country.
