Over the past year, we have been collaborating with Pippa Middleton on Heartfelt, a heart-healthy recipe book featuring over 100 recipes for a heart healthy lifestyle. Profits from the book will help the BHF fund its life saving research.
Pippa has worked with a team of experts in the production of Heartfelt and is passionate about delicious food. Her production team included Waitrose weekend food editors and BHF registered dietitians who ensured the recipes are not only delicious and simple to produce but also help to protect heart health.
We recently organised for members of a London heart support group, to meet with Pippa Middleton at Grace Belgravia for a delicious afternoon tea. Members of the group shared their experiences with Pippa over some delicious heart-healthy treats from Heartfelt, including salmon-topped spelt and beetroot blinis, beetroot falafels with yoghurt dressing, oaty drop scones with cranberries and banana, and blueberry and oat muffins.
Eileen Hunt, a member of the BHF’s Lewisham Heart Support Group, says: “I had such a wonderful afternoon. I’d heard about the new cook book but hadn’t had a chance to take a look at it yet. Having Pippa there and getting to sample some of the tasty dishes was such a wonderful surprise and a lovely treat.
“After having open heart surgery three years ago, I always try to eat a healthy diet. Heartfelt has given me lots of ideas about how I can be more adventurous with food, whilst still keeping it healthy.”
Pippa adds: “It was such a pleasure to meet members from BHF's heart support groups, and hearing about each of their challenging journeys. The determination and energy in the room was inspiring.”
