‘Cooking Together’ classes launched for Macmillan Cancer Support

Award-winning micro baker Ruth Macintyre, from Ruth’s Little Kitchen, has launched a series of ‘Cooking Together’ classes, aimed primarily at those affected by cancer. Ruth will be holding weekly cooking lessons over Zoom, using recommended recipes from Macmillan Cancer Support, showing how they can be adapted. Ruth’s aim is to create a supportive community for anyone to join in and learn, whilst raising money for Macmillan.

Ruth’s Little Kitchen was born and raised from Ruth’s love of baking and cooking, with the aim of bringing people together to have fun and learn new skills. The new ‘Cooking Together’ classes are just that, offering people from all walks of life the chance to cook simple, healthy, yet delicious recipes together, whilst exchanging stories.

Ruth explains: ‘In January 2021, I myself was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer Stage 3 and have been extremely lucky with all the care given to me and the vast number of resources available from Macmillan Cancer Support. I wanted to do something to raise money for charity and since I wanted to use a Macmillan resource while doing what I love most – bringing people together to cook – online classes were the perfect starting point’.

Ruth has built the classes around Macmillan’s Recipes for People Affected by Cancer, which gives guidance and information on recipes suitable for people with sore mouths, sickness and nausea, problems with chewing, loss of taste and smell, loss of weight and appetite, healthier eating and vegetarians.

Ruth’s classes started at the end of April and the next class is on Wednesday 5 May.

The classes are completely free; with donations encouraged to Ruth’s own Just Giving page, which will go to the Macmillan Cancer Support to help them in continuing all their resources that are extremely helpful to all cancer patients in the UK.
