With Leiths School of Food and Wine.
Our Christmas Canapé class, taught by revered food stylist Jennifer Joyce, will show you how to wow party guests with miniature morsels of perfection such as Mini tostadas with guacamole, crab and pickled jalapenos, Pumpkin and feta filo triangles, and Poppadum with ginger mango prawns.
If you’re planning to feed your guests something more substantial, why not join Ursula Ferringno as she teaches her signature Italian Christmas dishes; Carpaccio of beef with walnuts and Gorgonzola, Roast capon with roasted vegetables, and Paneforte di Sienna.
Alternatively, spice up Christmas and get a warm glow inside with Angela Malik’s Indian style Christmas. You’ll create a pretty jewelled Biryani, studded with seasonal pomegranate seeds and deeply fragrant with festive spices and citrus, then parathas, chutney and an indulgent mango fool.
And if your teenagers are shirking their kitchen duties (the iPad has a lot to answer for!) why not send them on the ‘Christmas Cookery Toolbox for Teenagers’ course, held over four days during the school holidays?
We aim to impart skills for life, so we’ll teach them how to cook a chicken and ham pie, a banana and date pudding with butterscotch sauce, and a fabulous festive feast with all the trimmings. Our hope is that one day they’ll spoil the parents!
When it comes to gifts, treat budding chefs to a set of Japanese steel knives, or book them on to one of 50 different cookery courses, including gluten-free and plant-based menus, at the country’s top culinary school, Leiths. We also offer vouchers which can be spent on our classes or on books, aprons and knives.
