The Trois-Rivières-based company Cuisigam is launching a cookbook from locals. The profits from the sale will be donated to the Guignolée des medias – Mauricie / Center-du-Québec region.
“On the occasion of our 25th anniversary and because cooking in Quebec is the perfect place to meet with family and friends, Cuisigam has decided to launch its first cookbook. We have also decided to put the people of Mauricie in the spotlight in this book in order to say “thank you”! They have been part of the recipe for our success for 25 years, ”explains Ms. Sacha Lajeunesse, co-owner of Cuisigam, a company specializing in the kitchen cabinet, bathroom and custom furniture industry.
The idea of creating a cookbook came to fruition during containment last spring. Ms. Lajeunesse first launched a contest on Cuisigam’s social networks in order to find original and family recipes that came from people from the Mauricie. A jury made up of six people was formed, including a talented chef from the region.
Last summer, the jury members first had the difficult task of testing the 15 finalist recipes; five recipes were selected to be included in this book. In addition, each member of the jury as well as food photographer Alain Lebel also offer one of their favorite recipe.
In the end, chef Sonia Delisle, along with the members of the jury, concocted 12 recipes which are illustrated and published in the pages of this book.
Recipe books are on sale for $ 20 plus tax at the Cuisigam branch or online via the www.cuisigam.com or to exploretroisrivieres.com/produit/livre-de-recette-cuisigam/ .
A challenge for companies
A challenge is launched to the owners and the management of the companies which would like to reward employees, partners, customers, to obtain a set of 10 books which they can redistribute. “It’s a great gift to offer for this holiday season and a strong way to encourage the cause and families in need in our region,” concludes the regional coordinator of the Media Drive, Steve Renaud.
