Leiths first opened in the Notting Hill area 38 years ago. The main school in W12 trains future gourmet chefs, but little sister Leiths Portobello is ideal for the keen cook or hostess. The school is fully equipped to teach a brand new range of courses. Matching the foodie and globetrotting residents of London’s most colourful area, the programme kicks off with The Global Gourmet, an exclusive culinary tour taught in intimate groups by Leiths experts.

From the exotic flavours of Southern and Central Asia to the heady scents and spices of North Africa and the Middle East, cross continents to sample the cures and preserves of Northern Europe, and travel south to enjoy zingy Latin flavours.
