Cookery Classes at Duck & Waffle Helping People Living with Cancer

Duck & Waffle partners with LIFE KITCHEN, the cookery initiative for people living with Cancer.

Iconic London restaurant Duck & Waffle are offering free cookery classes across the UK to help those living with cancer to experience the comfort and delight of flavour again. The Life Kitchen cookery classes at Duck & Waffle start on 7th August. Spaces are limited to twelve people: six people who are currently undergoing treatment plus a guest each. Hosted by executive chef Tom Cenci’s at the restaurant on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower.

About 80% of people undergoing chemotherapy find that the treatment robs them of their ability to taste. This not only makes food unpalatable for them, it takes away one of the pleasures of life. Founded by Ryan Riley, in memory of his mother, Krista, who at just 47, lost her battle against small-cell lung cancer four years ago, and with the help of pioneering research from Professor Barry Smith of the University of London, a world authority in taste and the senses.

A cause close to Tom Cenci’s heart, he says “the work that Ryan and Life Kitchen do is amazing, and we are very excited to be a part of it. Life Kitchen help people suffering with cancer to experience the pleasure of food again, and here at Duck & Waffle we are always experimenting with exciting flavour combinations, so it feels like such a great fit. We can’t wait to welcome the first students to Duck & Waffle”.
