Ruth, Founder & Chairman of the Board
Cucina & Amore is all about healthy food. The idea started from our founder, Ruth Wilkinson, who wanted to simplify healthy meal preparation for working mothers like herself. As a mother of three, and a breast cancer survivor, she has a passion for creating healthy, easy-to-prepare classic dishes for her family. She's a firm believer that food should not only taste good, but should also be good for you and free of preservatives and growth hormones. Fresh ingredients are the secret to her success. Throughout the years she has created a variety of mouthwatering recipes, which she shared with friends, family and her community. Through this the Cucina& Amore brand was born and has since become one of the leaders in the market of healthy, innovative, and amazingly delicious foods.
