More than 44 people die from bowel cancer every day in the UK, it’s the nation’s second biggest cancer killer. However, it shouldn’t be. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.
Brian Turner, Eric Lanlard, Tom Aikens, the Hairy Bikers, Gennaro Contaldo, Deliciously Ella, Mark Greenaway, Tom Kitchin and Rick Stein have all whipped up their favourite recipes for the campaign.
Steph Mills, Community Fundraising Manager at Bowel Cancer UK says: “Whether you’re a whiz in the kitchen or if baking sends you into a tiz, our celebrity chef supporters have a recipe for you. Test your soufflé skills with a delicious Chocolate Orange Soufflé by the Hairy Bikers, make your chocolate brownies less devilish with Deliciously Ella’s sweet potato brownies or if you’re after indulgence, Tom Aikens chocolate cake will satisfy your sweet tooth. Then hold a cake stall, coffee morning or afternoon tea and invite your friends, family and colleagues to make a donation and sample the delicious treats”.
French pâtissier Eric Lanlard says: “I’m supporting Bowel Cancer UK’s Be a Star, Bake a Cake campaign as I’d like to raise awareness to stop bowel cancer – every 15 mins in the UK someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer – let’s get baking and help spread the word!”
British chef, Brian Turner CBE, says: “Cook up a storm this April for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month! Treat your friends, family and work colleagues to your favourite homemade cake and raise awareness of bowel cancer. Go for it!”
