For those that don’t know me already, my name is Sayjel Patel and I am a qualified chef and dietitian. I have been running children's cookery classes for the past 10 years. The aim of my club is to encourage your child to learn about ‘good food' and to explore new flavours in an educational and fun way.

During a typical session we will cover 2-3 recipes using quality ingredients.  We informally discuss aspects of nutrition, food science, seasonality and where ingredients originate from. Each recipe will be utilising 1 or more essential cooking skills.

I have been reviewing all the previous Holiday Club Feedback. Thank you for all your positively and support! 

I am also changing the format slightly. Summer Holiday Clubs previously ran for 3.5 hours and would be quite rushed due to the technical skills required for some of the recipes. This August the Clubs will be 4 hours but with and 20-30 minute break with a healthier homemade snack or drink which will be demonstrated in the class. I will also be stating the specific age range that the class will be geared to.

In our 2nd Holiday class we will focus on Picnic Faves! The children will  learn to correctly season the sausage meat filling for their Sausage Rolls.  They will roll their puff pastry and individually plait their sausage rolls to create an attractive lattice design. They will then egg wash and bake to perfection. They will then prepare their Sweet Mustard Dip to serve with their Sausage Rolls. To accompany these, we will prepare a Creamy Potato Salad using Jersey Royals or new potatoes. We will discuss the difference between waxy & floury potatoes and their uses in cooking.


For the  Strawberry Eton Mess  your children will learn about fruits and berries seasonal to Summer. We will prepare our strawberries before macerating in a little sugar. The children will learn the fundamentals on  Meringue making. They will make a creme Chantilly to combine their berries and meringue for their Eton Mess. There will be a selection of toasted nuts, coconut flakes & edible flowers (from our garden) or sprinkles to decorate.

For the break we will make a healthy Lemonade with fresh lemons and reduced sugar. I will demonstrate how to make homemade drinks with less sugar than the shop bought versions.

The children will take home their prepared dishes in food grade packaging so they can enjoy at home and share with their families. I will provide a small snack and drinking water. Please ensure your children have an adequate lunch though before attending the class.

This will be sure to challenge your child's culinary skills but will also be a lot of fun!

There is an early bird discount of £5 if booked before 9th July (USE CODE: EARLY BIRD HOLIDAY 2).

This class is suitable for children aged 8-14 years old.

Please note, if you would like to form your own group maybe with your child/children and their friends, please do contact me as I have a few Summer dates available in July & September for private group bookings. If there are 6 children in total, the price cost per child works out similar to the Holiday Clubs and can be tailored to your children's needs. This way you and your children can decide what to make or what they would like to learn to cook!

From September, I will be running Saturday Kitchen weekly term time classes which are 1.5hrs for 10 weeks. If interested please book via the following link:

This will be in its 2nd successful year. Last year traditional meals and main dishes from around the world including chow mein, neapolitan pizza, kofta kebabs, fresh pasta in addition to sweet treats such as churros, lemon drizzle cake & crepes.
