“Pasta fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I have been a keen cook for 40 years. Had a pasta machine for 25. I have been satisfied with my pasta, but not getting there. During this course I learned what is not in the recipe. Which is the right consistency and running the dough thorough the machine on the widest setting. When I tried it out after coming home I heard the pasta "pop" for the first time. What I had learned made all the difference. Instead of pasta making being a bit of a hassle it became really enjoyable.

The course was amazing and absolutely professional. Two teachers and two assistants for a group of 13 participants. The hands-on supervision and the assistance in clearing up meant that the time was really used for intensive learning.

I will be coming back for a five day course

“Wonderful knife skills course!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I can not express how wonderful this course was. It has totally changed the way I work in the kitchen. I'm definitely much faster with my preparation. We were even advised on how to decide what knives to buy and how to maintain these.
The staff were extremely professional and organised. I would definitely do another class there in the future

“Intermediate Key Skills courses are excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you dread entering the kitchen, fear not! The extremely knowledgeble staff at Leith's will show you the way with patience, clarity and a little dash of fun. The courses are designed to make the learning experience as easy as possible and will allow you to gain new skills quickly and efficiently.

You'll make new friends and no doubt be practising recipes on each other long after you have left the school. The courses are superbly organised and are to be highly recommended.

Enjoy !

“Saturday Morning Chocolate Pudding Workshop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Had a voucher as a Birthday present and went to a Saturday morning Chocolate Pudding Workshop (15th Dec 012) its the first time I have been to anything like this and it was fantastic! Max Clark and Jess her assistant were excellent teachers, very helpful and informative.
I would definitely recommend this school and this course, Leiths is a professional place so I would expect other workshops to be just as good.
