We visited Leiths as competition winners and attended Jo Pratt's cookery class. The experience was fabulous. Jo was so friendly and helpful and explained everything clearly. The staff were extremely helpful and everything was really well organised. At the end of the class we got to taste our own food with a glass of wine. Any of the food we... More

We joined the Jo Pratt cooking for the family course and made four lovely dishes following Jo's wonderful guidance and demonstrations. The staff were all friendly and helpful and made the day memorable. We will be back

I booked in for the Artisan Soft Cheese course with Louise for my first course at Leiths and it was absolutely fantastic. She is the most wonderful teacher, the group were great and we walked away with our own homemade helloumi, mozzarella and ricotta and the confidence to do it again at home. I will certainly never waste cream again... More

Thank you to Adriana and the team for a fantastic day on Friday. My mum and I learned so much and had great fun. Everyone was friendly and couldn't do more to help us and make our day a success. The environment is well set out and the class of 12 students small enough to get individual attention. It was... More

I went to Leiths for my birthday, with three of my close friends, and it was everything I had hoped for. Apart from the four of us, there were two other boys, so we received maximum attention for our cooking education experience. Everything is efficient, the recipes for the food are great, and the facilities are spotless. I definitely recommend!!!!... More

A 4-hour life-changing introduction to the modern Indian kitchen with the dynamo that is Angela Malik. A former City forensic accountant, Angela was born in Edinburgh after her parents left India for Scotland. Her father, a vegetarian Hindu, ran restaurants across the country and warned her off a culinary career. Thankfully, it proved impossible to suppress her natural talent and... More

I've done a few courses here including Indian with Angela Malik, Baking, Moroccan and Vegetarian. On each 1 day (usually 10-2.30) you learn and make a full menu including all the accompaniments. I'm still making those meals now and they are really great. I'm currently taking Nutrition in Practise (10 weeks of 1 day per week) which is excellent so... More

5 hours of fun and expert tuition. "Authentic Indian Home cooking with Anjula Devi". A well run Cookery course, learning to make a Chicken curry, Tarka Dal and Masala Potatoes. Anjula made the course fun and very interesting. We learned a lot about Indian spices and how to layer them to make a perfect curry dish. Her wonderful Team headed... More

This would be a good course for beginners but it was disappointing for someone like me who is already pretty proficient with a chef's knife. It is difficult to ascertain from the website what exactly you will be taught in this course, which turned out to be basic slicing and dicing, julienne, batons, how to crush garlic with salt, chiffonade,...
