At the Prue Leith Chefs Academy all of our chef courses have been developed with the industry in mind with our curriculum consisting of both theoretical and practical training. All of our all professional lecturers are also specialists in their individual culinary fields. Our students are given high quality ingredients to experiment with from around the globe from Belgian chocolates and Italian truffles to French frog’s legs and Iranian Caviar. This is so that when our students go on to work in top restaurants, they understand the high quality expected of five star flavours and textures. Students also undergo an extensive finance module to familiarise them with the business workings of a professional kitchen.
At the academy our students are also given the opportunity to put their cooking skills to the test in our fully equipped demonstration kitchen, which is also home to our onsite restaurant, Prue Leith’s. Voted as one of the top 100 restaurants in the country it is particularly popular amongst locals looking for fine dining in Gauteng. It is for this reason that we often receive bookings well in advance from customers both locally and abroad.
