Excellence in Culinary Schools

How Our Institute Far Exceeds Other Culinary Schools

If it is cookery you are looking to study, you will find no shortage of culinary schools in South Africa. Unfortunately for many students, unaccredited fly-by-night schools and scams still exist. Then there are accredited schools who simply do not offer their students quality training and exposure. When enrolling with us at the Prue Leith Culinary Institute, however, you can rest assured that your education is in the best hands. Recognised as the top culinary school in the country, we will help you open major doors when it comes to an impactful, fulfilling future career.

Our Patron Namesake is a Celebrity Chef

Daughter of actress Margaret Inglis, fame is nothing new to this celebrity chef, restauranteur, journalist, and bestselling author. A strong businesswoman at heart, Prue Leith was honoured by the Queen of England with an O.B.E and a C.B.E. It is her love for delicious food and excellent technical skills that have propelled her chef’s academy to its leading status today.

We Offer a Range of Full-time, Part-Time, and Short Courses

Unlike many other culinary schools, hands-on, practical training is essential to us. Our students can thus enrol in courses that allow for interactive lessons exploring everything from classic French cuisine to the intricacies of molecular gastronomy. Both novice students looking to dip their toe into the world of scrumptious food and experienced chefs seeking to refine their skills alike will find that our course takes their training to the next level.

Whether you are seeking part-time or full-time courses, we offer similar programmes in both categories. We also offer short courses that span across one, two, or five days, as well as online courses that students can attend, no matter where in the world they are. Through a safe, hygienic, and supportive environment, you will come to see food in a whole new light.

Our Team is Made Up of Experienced Chefs

Some culinary schools simply hire lecturers to relay textbook information. Our lecturers, on the other hand, are all experts in their respective fields. With years of expertise behind their names, you will be guided and taught to think, act, and feel like an experienced culinary professional. The quality of these lessons is upheld to strict, international standards. This means that studying and training with us will allow you to confidently work anywhere in the world.

Our Facilities are Fully Equipped

Our academy has invested in brand-new kitchen and lecturer facilities. Multiple cooking stations, top-of-the-line appliances and equipment, and state-of-the-art audio-visual suites for presentations and teaching allow students to enjoy the best facilities the industry has to offer. Learning in such an environment develops a taste for excellence and commitment to a strong work ethic, allowing each student the opportunity to become the best version of their professional selves.

We also choose to align our brand with the crème de la crème when it comes to culinary education, and so, our courses are all accredited by well-established and reputable institutions.

Do not settle for cooking schools that waste your time. Enrol with us today for first-class training and a bright future ahead.
