Life Kitchen Cookery School (TEENS EVENT)

Future Dreams House, London

Life Kitchen is a not-for-profit cookery school for people whose taste has been affected by cancer or cancer treatment.

Life Kitchen’s focus is on taste and flavour and helping people enjoy food again. During cancer treatment, a lot of patients lose or experience changes to their sense of taste or smell. This is a really difficult side effect that can make mealtimes difficult and isolating. Life Kitchen changes that!

Life Kitchen is run by co-founders Ryan Riley, author, cook and food stylist, and Kimberley Duke, recipe developer, trained chef and food stylist. Both Ryan and Kim were inspired to launch Life Kitchen after losing parents to cancer. Throughout Ryan’s mum Krista’s two-year battle with cancer, Ryan saw how chemotherapy was affecting her ability to taste and experience food. He wanted to honour his mother’s memory and use his cooking skills to help cancer patients find flavour and pleasure in food again. And so, Life Kitchen was born.

The classes are run by a Life Kitchen teacher and take around 1 hour and 30 minutes. During the classes, you will find out about the five principles of taste and flavour and you will create a delicious home-made meal that you can then enjoy with around 10 other young people in a similar situation.  

Attending this event will enable you to:
•   Feel a sense of achievement
•   Learning new, practical life skills
•   Encourage healthy eating and nutrition
