About the Author:

Leiths School of Food and Wine in London has acquired a first-class, international reputation since it was founded by Prue Leith in 1975. Students come from all over the world to enjoy dedicated teaching in a friendly atmosphere. The aim is to teach cookery skills and instill a lasting love of good food and wine. Teaching staff are trained professional chefs, with experience in the real world of restaurants and commercial catering. In addition, renowned chefs and cookery writers regularly demonstrate and lecture at the School. Many students from Leiths have moved on to highly successful careers in the world of food and catering, but courses are not restricted to aspiring professional cooks. Over the years, Leiths has trained school leavers in need of a life skill, timepressed career individuals keen to ditch ready meals, newly weds, and parents looking for fresh inspiration for family meals. Leiths School of Food and Wine is now an independent company owned by Sir Christopher Bland. The managing Director is Camilla Schneideman. Leiths most recent book, Leiths How to Cook published by Quadrille in 2013, was described as 'the most comprehensive and solid kitchen bible you could wish for'.
