Not only does Seafood go perfectly with Champagne….there is just something sexy about eating seafood. Think of slurping a raw oyster; feeding your lover a beautifully prepared canape with caviar followed by a shot of vodka, or sharing a piece of lobster dipped in butter. There are many varieties of seafood that have found their way on top lists of aphrodisiacs: Caviar, lobster, oysters, scallops and clams. Here is a wonderful appetizer to consider for your Valentine Seduction Meal by Alton Brown–Scallops on the Half Shell. The presentation is greatly enhanced by taken the extra step of purchasing the shells to serve the Scallops on, or perhaps you have scallop appetizer plates such as these from Micheal Aram.
It is truly amazing to watching a person succumbing to their chocolate desires…with their eyes closed, and their motions slowed downy to savor every moment of this its experience – dare I say…it’s almost orgasmic. For many, chocolate is one of life’s true culinary pleasures. I would have to agree, although I put it right next to ice-cream. Hell, some say its better than sex! Long accepted as a Valentine’s Day tradition, chocolate goes hand-in-hand as a choice gift with long stem roses or any flowers for that matter. Shower your lover with this powerful aphrodisiac to find out if it truly increases one’s sexual libido.
Deliciously tempting, there is a reason honey is always listed as a top food for love. In medieval times, people drank a fermented drink made from honey which they believed promoted sexual desire. This drink, called mead, was shared between newlyweds in hopes of igniting flames of passion during their “honey month” or honeymoon. Luxuriously smooth, sticky and sweet – you can get very creative with your use of honey. Here is a tempting way to end your Valentine’s Day meal: a special dessert of Pears in Honey and Pine Nut Caramel with Artisanal Cheese.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
