Cooking for Your Sweetheart


Cooking for Your Sweetheart was a sold-out event last Thursday, February 12 at Discover YOU! in Mount Holly with nearly 40 attendees from the community. Hosted by CaroMont Health, the heart-healthy cooking demonstration offered guests a chance to learn about the importance of nutrition in supporting a healthy heart, all the while being able to sample freshly prepared recipes just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Cardiologist Laddeus L. Sutton, MD, at CaroMont Heart, talked about the role that a healthy diet and lifestyle serve as the best weapons in the fight against heart disease and how to make smart food choices to benefit your heart and your overall health. Jeff Acheson, Executive Chef at the Round Bistro, prepared delicious entrees from the American Heart Association ® cookbook, featuring baked salmon over blueberry salad with goat cheese and lemon vinaigrette dressing, grilled filet mignon over lemon herb couscous and wilted mustard spinach and dark chocolate sabayon fruit parfait.

Cooking for Your Sweetheart was funded by the CaroMont Health Foundation. CaroMont Health provides a number of community education and outreach events throughout the year. To learn more about upcoming events like this one, please follow CaroMont Health on Facebook or visit Discover YOU!,
