Leiths celebrates 40th anniversary with line-up of industry names

Leiths School of Food and Wine is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

To mark the event, the London cookery school will be hosting an evening of canapés and conversation reflecting on the changing tastes of Britain over the last 40 years, with guest panellists Prue Leith and celebrity cooks Yotam Ottolenghi, Rick Stein and Gizzi Erskine.

The panel will discuss changing attitudes to food, techniques and trends since Leiths opened its doors in 1975. They will explore Brits’ relationship with food and cooking from a range of perspectives, from the processed foods of the 1970s, nouvelle cuisine of the 1980s and the gastropubs and fusion foods of the 1990s; to the popularity of international cuisines, fad diets and our obsession in where our food comes from.

Following the talk, guests will be served canapés influenced by Leiths’ favourites over the decades.For every ticket purchased, Leiths will donate £2 to the Kids Company Plate Pledge.
