MONTREAL, APRIL 15, 2016 – With students, parents and grandparents on hand, students from Rosemount High School and Nesbitt Elementary School in Rosemount and Gerald McShane Elementary School in Montreal officially launched Food for Thought, a cookbook linking generations of families through cuisine.

The evening was held in advance of the Cook for a Cure gala in support of the Alzheimer’s Society of Montreal, which will bring the recipes in the cookbook to life. On Wednesday, May 11 (6 pm) at Plaza Antique 6086 Sherbrooke East), students will recreate their family’s signature dish for both family and celebrity judges.

For the grandparents in attendance, the launch of Food for Thought was extra special as the book, and their inspiration for it, was a surprise.

“The book allows the reader to connect with the stories of the students' loved ones and the dishes that transport them back home,” said Vince Lacroce, Spiritual and Community Animator. “It is much more than a cook book; it is a window to the lives of everyday individuals who positively impact the lives of their loved ones.”
The launch of Food for Thought was hosted by CTV Montreal’s Mose Persico and also featured a comedy set from Neil Janna.
