Leiths Pop Up Cookery School

Budding bakers and fantastic foodies – step this way!

We are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the famous Leiths School of Food and Wine to offer a Pop-Up Cookery School this autumn half term (Monday 22 – Friday 26 October 2018), with day or weekly courses available.

Launched by Prue Leith and Caroline Waldegrave in 1975, Leiths has an international reputation for first class culinary training. The buzzing West London School has turned out dozens of famous names, from Channel 4’s Gizzi Erskine to Saturday Kitchen’s Matt Tebbutt.

In their first course for Truro School, The Cornish Complete Cook, you will work with top quality local ingredients and learn how to really bring out the flavours.

From locally caught lemon sole with homemade hollandaise sauce to the lightest cheesy pastries made with quince and Cornish Yarg, our step-by-step tuition will destress cooking forever.

From knife skills to bread making, you will learn many of the fundamental skills you need to eat well and cook creatively, opening up a whole world of delicious, nutritious and luxurious recipes.

The Cornish Complete Cook will run from 9:30am – 3:00pm from the 22 to the 26 October 2018 and is for over 18 years only. To book a single day or the whole week, please complete a booking form and submit. Cost: £135 per day.

Please note, the deadline for booking is 15 October.
