The part time Diploma in Culinary Studies at the Prue Leith Chefs Academy includes a range of catering classes covering everything from hot and cold kitchen curriculum’s to finance and pastry. The duration of the course is 12 months, giving students the opportunity to study and work simultaneously.
Many of the students at the Prue Leith Chefs Academy have gone on to work in top kitchens around the world under celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay and Jaime Oliver. Students are given only the best ingredients to experiment with in their catering classes, allowing them to become familiar with various tastes and textures. They then put their cooking skills to the test in our fully equipped demonstration kitchen and onsite restaurant, Prue Leith’s. Voted as one of the top 100 restaurants in South Africa, it is our students who are left to impress the diners with their newly acquired kitchen capabilities.
We are also well known for having bookings well in advance from diners looking to guarantee themselves a table at the restaurant. Prue Leith’s can also be booked for teambuilding activities, ideal for lifting moral and improving business productivity and effectiveness.
