The Leiths Confident Cooks celebrated their achievements this term by cooking and sharing a Christmas meal, showing that they can now juggle the timings of a traditional roast dinner and make perfect crispy roast potatoes. They made and enjoyed roast chicken with lemon and herbs which they served with a rich ‘old fashioned gravy’, apple and sage stuffing, cauliflower gratin, roast potatoes, green beans, carrots and broccoli, all followed by a spiced apple crumble with custard and cream. There were clean plates all round, lots of laughter along the way and plenty of festive Christmas singing during the washing up!

Leiths Christmas Canape Party at Dean Close House, hosted by Upper Sixth Form Leiths’ students was a splendid assortment of delicious savoury and sweet treats.
