Hello my name is Sayjel Patel and I run My Rainbow Kitchen. I am a Leith's trained chef and Qualified Dietitian and passionate about teaching both Adults and Children how to cook. I teach both within Schools and in our new colourful teaching kitchen.
My love for colour translates in my cooking and like to use an abundance of colourful fruit and vegetables which is both seasonal and local. I like to grow my own produce and use techniques such as fermenting and sprouting and use this to create simple healthy and flavourful dishes.
My dedicated classes for children are taught in a fun educational way using experiments and activities based around ingredients, food and eating. My adult classes are focused mainly on attaining specific skills to produce a variety of dishes ranging from the more traditional to more contemporary healthy dishes influenced from around the world!
"Sayjel at my rainbow kitchen is a talented chef who has advised and catered for my specialist diet on many occasions. I have many food intolerances and her dietary knowledge is invaluable in ensuring I follow my diet adequately. Not only does she teach cooking classes and also caters for special occasions, she is very professional and has a friendly and caring manner about her. Thanks Sayjel for all your help!"
