Playing Cupid in the Kitchen

Monday, February 9, 2009

Don't let Wall Street sabotoge this year's Valentine's Day. Forget fancy restaurants, pricey floral arrangements and valentine grams. This Valentine's Day "All you need is love"... and maybe a little assistance in the kitchen.

Well help has arrived! Authors Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge have a steamy surprise in store for you -- the 10th anniversary edition of their best-selling Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook. Filled cover to cover with tantalizing recipes, each of the 17 sections of the book are dedicated to a different aphrodisiac. From foods traditionally heralded as sensual including chocolate, oysters and strawberries to interesting additions such as pine nuts, artichokes and ginger, Intercourses offers, according to an review, "more than 85 heart-melting and temperature-raising recipes." 

Need to taste it to believe it? Try out one of these sample recipes from the book:
The Holy Grail of Valentine's Day cooking, Intercourses also offers the history, myth and lore behind some of these long-revered ingredients as well as real-life couple's stories and hot photography. Read a sweet sample including the history of honey and why ginger made the list.

While cupid may miss or make his mark come Saturday, this steamy cookbook is a surefire way to turn up the heat in the kitchen this Valentine's Day!
