'Se fìor Uibhisteach a th'ann am Màiri NicRisnidh - agus cleas mòran dhe a càirdean agus a nàbannan, 's gann gun cùm i a crògan a-mach a pocan mine. Màthair òg le dithis chloinne - ach tha ciall dlùth, pearsanta aig fuine do Mhàiri. Bha a màthair sgoinneil air bèiceireachd - ach chaochail i le aillse brollaich nuair nach robh Màiri ach ceithir bliadhn' deug. Tha Màiri neisd a'miannachadh na sgilean còcaireachd a thug i bhuaipe a chuir gu feum - a'togail airgid airson carthannas aillse.

Mairi MacRitchie is a true Uibhisteach. Like many of her family and neighbours she can hardly keep her hands out of a bag of flour. But for this young mother of two, baking has a deeply personal significance. Mairi's mother was a brilliant baker - but died of breast cancer when Mairi was only 14. Now Mairi wants to put her inherited kitchen skills to good use - to raise money for a leading cancer charity.
