Truly passionate about food, cooking and spices, Ren Patel started her boutique cookery school over 12 years ago in north-west London. We are thrilled that she is able to join us as a guest chef at Thyme. The foundation of all Ren's classes, is a spice masterclass, a sensory journey through the world of Indian spices and ingredients, where guests taste each spice to explore their features and purpose. 
Ren has worked with Soho House, Babington House and The Chess Club among others. She conducts Masterclasses for chefs, hosts supper clubs, as well as creating and delivering cookery classes. Ren has recently become a regular guest teacher at Borough Kitchen Cook School in Hampstead and Chiswick. Working as a consultant for Tesco, Waitrose and IKEA among others, she also has her own spice kit range Ren’s Blends, in addition to supplying spices to chefs and restaurants nationwide.
