Flavour & Haver

Looking for an evening with a difference? Keen to try your hand at a new cuisine? Our Flavour and Haver Community Cook School set in the heart of Leith is the perfect place for you!

Opened by Prue Leith in 2018, our purpose-built industrial-kitchen is a welcoming space providing something to eat, and someone to eat with.

Year round we offer unique masterclasses and supper clubs that provide you and your guests the chance to learn from the best. Our sell-out Masterclasses will see you create dishes such as Chinese dumplings; eclairs; various international cuisines, under the skilled hand of our chefs. At a supper club our chef Noura will take you on a food tour of Syria where you will be able to sample delicious pastries; hummus; her signature Makluba and many other dishes.

There’s something for everyone, so why not check out our events calendar now to book your place and taste the world without leaving Leith. You can also visit our shop and gift a place to a loved one! 

We also offer REHIS accredited training for the budding chefs amongst us. By choosing to complete your training at our cook school you’ll be helping to support individuals from low income areas access further training too. Find out more.

The feel good factor

Attending our events, buying a gift card, or recommending us to a friend all contributes to our work tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness.

When our industrial scale kitchen isn’t hosting a culinary masterclass, we offer free educational courses to those facing food insecurity, supporting the learning of basic cookery skills, nutrition and budgeting. We also support the delivery of over 19 community cook clubs providing free nutritious meals to members of the community. 

This is all made possible thanks to your support.
