Christmas Gifts for Foodies
We all know a foodie. The person you go to for restaurant recommendations, who isn't perplexed by that alien vegetable the MasterChef contestants are cooking with, and who actually looks forward to the sweet release of cooking a nourishing meal after a long, tiring day at work.
But how do you surprise someone who's always the first to know about the latest epicurean trends? Your answer lies in the hallowed kitchens of Leiths School of Food and Wine in West London.
Having produced food industry legends such as Diana Henry, Lorraine Pascale, Matt Tebbutt and Gizzi Erskine, even the most particular gourmet is sure to be impressed by a visit to the revered school.
Offering the largest range of classes and courses of any cookery school in the UK, there's a present for every palate. The school's programme draws influence from cuisines all over the world and students have the chance to learn from the acclaimed Leiths teachers as well as celebrity chefs such as Atul Kochhar, Olia Hercules, Ben Tish, Normal Musa and Eleonora Galasso, amongst many more.
If you're not sure of their dietary requirements, or selecting the perfect class is simply too intimidating, you can give your loved one the chance to choose their own experience with one of the school's gift vouchers, redeemable on all classes, courses, cookbooks, knife sets and aprons.
You'll be feeding your foodie's passion with the ultimate culinary experience and, bear in mind, their day at Leiths is likely to leave them with some delicious leftovers…
