Remove all peeling paint, depending on size of patches, use ready mixed skim, leave to dry, gently rub down skim to blend with rest of the ceiling (paper grade 180), then paint 2-3 coats the whole ceiling o get uniform colour... U r done, perfect finish is back.

Hi there best way to sort your problem is to, sand the edges of the patches smooth and apply a paint called ALKALI resisting primer its a Crown trade product apply it all over your ceiling. After its dried, apply Crown Trade vinyl silk paint to your kitchen ceiling this will be your finished job. if you use this process your ceiling will never peal again.

Scrape off flakey paint, fill using any easy to sand powder filler then paint with silk or similar moisture resistant paint such as soft sheen or diamond matt. Should do the trick
