Cancer can leave a lot of people in financial hardship and we think that people from all walks of

life should have equal access to classes and information that can help them. If you would like to

help us continue our classes, you can make a donation here

Life Kitchen recipes are designed to be delicious for everyone but are based on our 5 principals of taste and flavour, making them great for people who are suffering a loss of taste and a loss of appetite.

It’s important to remember that everyone is different and there is not a one size fits all recipe to help with taste issues, if you have worries, consult a dietician or nutritionist who may be able to tailor a food plan to your specific needs.

Life Kitchen travels around the UK hosting classes in lots of beautiful venues, for a full list of where our travelling classes are click here
