My column this month for BBC Good Food Asia magazine is packed load of delicious good-for-your heart recipes, in keeping with the special theme that always clouds in February: Valentine’s. In the spirit of love, those delicious recipes are especially tailored for heart healthy menu so we can show some love to our ol’ ticker too.
Pomegranate Strawberry Spritzer
Indulge in low calorie ‘mocktail’ with pomegranate spritzer. Pomegranate is de rigeur now, but do you know that pomegranates contain punicalagin, a substance that not only lowers the cholesterol, but also melts away the existing atherosclerotic plaque from our coronary blood vessels?
Quinoa with red pepper and aubergine stew, recipe here.
Poussin Cassoulet with homemade Ravioli
I am also sharing some tips on how to make the perfect ravioli from scratch, and enjoy it with cassoulet. Unusual combination, yes, but such delicious meal especially on those cold weekend nights.

Of course, there must be a celebration cake. A healthier version of chocolate hazelnut sponge, drizzle with dark chocolate which is good for the heart and brings a lot of love too.
