Thursday 19 July is an important night on the stroke calendar. As a national foundation we are taking our annual Food for Thought journey to Hobart. As we all know, stroke is a very relevant issue in Australia with approximately 20% of strokes happening to those under the age of 55.
Tasmania has an ageing population and stroke is particularly relevant to the state. For these reasons we are very excited to have events like Food for Thought taking place in Tasmania. It will be a night to raise critical funds for, and awareness of our National Foundation.
As a signature fundraising event, we plan to celebrate. You might remember that we recently posted about the loss of taste and smell post stroke. We believe that stroke is a reminder of the fragility of life. To live each day, make the most of the moments that count and appreciate the finer things in life. Don’t you agree?
With all of the above in mind we are collaborating with local Tasmanian chefs who have donated their time and creativity to prepare a seven course degustation in the name of stroke. It is set to be a feast for the senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and of course, taste.
Guests will be treated to dishes prepared using the produce Tasmania is renowned for, think local seafood, wagyu beef, shima wasabi, apples, vegetables…
So who are the chefs?
• Klaa Clements from Westend Pumphouse
• Scott Heffernan from Smolt

• John Mahindroo from Solicit
• Waji Spiby from Waji Catering
Tasmanian State Manager, Connie Digolis summed up the importance of this Food for Thought in saying: “A stroke can happen to anyone at any moment and affect families forever. Food for Thought is about celebrating what we have. There is nothing quite like celebrating” said Connie Digolis.
