About this product
- DescriptionWriting a will and taking care of other aspects of estate planning can be intimidating and complicated. But putting off dealing with these issues, or avoiding them altogether, is t the solution. Food for Thought takes you by the hand and allows you to listen in on a group of people coming to terms with the kind of estate planning questions we all face. And while the characters may be fictional, the issues are only too real. Food for Thought follows a dinner club -- seven friends at various ages and stages of life -- through the course of a year. Each chapter revolves around a dinner party where the friends and neighbours gather to share fun and good food (recipes included!), but also their experiences with some of lifea s major events and tougher situations, all related to estate planning. As the characters work their way through experiences with aging parents, sudden death in their circle of friends, planning for the welfare of their children, and more, readers will learn how to deal with these legal and financial issues as well. Each chapter is in three parts. First the lively conversation and bon temps of the dinner party, which touches on one or two estate planning subjects. Part tow follows with an informative discussion of the legal and financial issues, in the tone of an experienced but friendlier estate lawyer. And part three features the dinner party menu, complete with seasonal recipes and advice on preparation and serving. Food for Thought makes the subject of estate planning more palatable by presenting it in the context of the finer and more pleasurable things in life -- friends, family, good conversation, and delicious recipes.
