The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has announced the upcoming launch of its all-new European Cook Book

Bringing together recipes created by leading cardiologists from across its membership, the aim of this high quality book is to demonstrate that a diverse, heart-friendly diet can be achieved without compromising on taste. The ESC strongly endorses a healthy and balanced diet as an effective means of lowering the risks from conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and coronary artery disease.

"The European Cook Book is absolutely a key part of our mission to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe", explains Professor Roberto Ferrari, President of the ESC. "Prevention of heart disease through education programmes about what to eat is a key part of our strategy. But while most people know the benefits of a good diet, it can still be very hard to persuade them to adopt new habits. Many mistakenly believe that healthy eating has to mean a bland and repetitive diet that could never excite their taste buds. After trying many of the recipes in this book myself, however, I can say that this is definitely not the case!"

This is a cookery book with a difference. The conventional part comprises 200-plus pages laid out as 43 menus of national recipes representing the unique cultural and culinary heritage of member and affiliate countries. The rich diversity of the ESC covering mainland Europe, the Mediterranean basin and beyond has strongly influenced the recipes - all of which have been submitted by heart specialists from each country. A professional chef and nutritionist has tested and adapted the recipes to create dishes that are heart-friendly yet very enjoyable.
