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.
