Leith Students Explore London’s Culinary Delights

Twenty Level 3 Leiths students set out to expand their palate and international cuisine experience on a culinary exploration of London. Starting with a visit to Borough Market, they explored the incredible produce vendors and food stalls. Highlights included stops at Humble Crumble and Arome Bakery for incredible French and Asian-fusion-inspired pastries and a number of other places made famous by their TikTok videos.

The pinnacle of their trip was a visit to Leiths School of Food and Wine, where they enjoyed a tour of the facilities, met with some Level 4 students, and watched cookery demonstrations. These included advanced pasta-making demos using enriched dough and a delicious pork ragu. They really enjoyed meeting the chefs, taking part in a Q&A session, and enjoying a beautiful Leiths lunch.

Student Olly said he loved the diverse range of foods he sampled, singling out the roast chicken tacos from a Mexican street food vendor he discovered. The group also ventured to Covent Garden and enjoyed Market Halls, Victoria, known for its inspiring international street-food offerings.
