We had an amazingly informative interview with Dr Vash Mungal-Singh CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation South Africa and Mariska Fouche who is the Public Affairs Manager at PharmaDynamics which is key financial sponsor of COOKING FROM THE HEART Cookbook which will be officially launched in September 2012 during National Heart Month.
The book will contain only South Africans’ favourite meals (across cultures) that have been given a healthy makeover and will take a very important aspect into affordability. The goal is to ensure that each recipe can be made under R50 and to feed approx. 4 – 6 people. In addition to this, Cooking from the Heart will be distributed free of charge to South Africans.
