Cook Yourself Young At Leiths Portobello
Leiths Portobello, little sister of the highly acclaimed Leiths School of Food and Wine opened its doors with sell out courses CookYourself Young with Elizabeth Peyton-Jones and The Complete Cook. New dates have now been released.
Change your diet and learn how to create rejuvenating, re-energising power-packed foods in Cook Yourself Young – Everyday with naturopath, food and health expert Elizabeth Peyton-Jones on 19 May. Clients including Hollywood actress Thandie Newton, have benefited from Elizabeth’s guidance in making dietary and lifestyle changes that rejuvenate their health, looks and wellbeing. Elizabeth will teach you how to create everyday delicious meat-sugar-wheat and dairy-free dishes that are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, alkalising and help balance weight, blood sugar levels, and hormones.
Elizabeth returns on Monday 9 June with an inspiring Cook Yourself Young – Entertaining menu that cuts out high-fat and low-nutrition foods replacing them with imaginative, decadent tasting dishes that still provide maximum health-inducing benefits. The mouth-watering menu includes Pea guacamole, Nori and quinoa maki, Halibut steaks, butterbean puree and beetroot salsa and Pecan pies with banana ice cream.
And finally, nice but not naughty Cook Yourself Young – Baking on Monday 30 June features flavoursome bread, cakes and biscuits such as Butternut squash bread, Cranberry, orange and pistachio biscotti and Lemon drizzle cake using gluten free and nut flours that avoid sugar and use natural sweeteners instead.
A student commented “I absolutely adored the course. It was so great to learn new healthy recipes for entertaining and so much more about good nutrition and I know it works. I feel so well and strong.”
Leiths are also running The Complete Cook which takes place on Fridays, from 25 April until 23 May and again from 6 June until 4 July. In this five part class students will gain the skills to be successful in the kitchen as they learn to slice and dice like a pro; perfect meat, fish and shellfish preparation and cooking; turn out delicious cakes and bakes, and finish of any meal with a delectable dessert. Taught in groups of no more than eight, there will be plenty of guidance from Leiths experts. By the end of the course students will have an inspiring new repertoire and the confidence to tackle any recipe.
