Ruth goes by many different titles: manager, chef, producer, creator, inventor, boss but most importantly she is a mother. She has 3 grown children who have seen the birth and growth of her 4th “child” that is Cucina & Amore. After Ruth survived stage 4 breast cancer and successfully losing over 100lbs, she made it her mission to find a way to incorporate healthy and fresh ingredients into a simple, easy to make, ready to go product line that we know today. With this concept, she wanted others to enjoy cooking as much as she did while remembering the importance of spending time with family. Cucina & Amore embodied the connection between family and food.
