We bought Booty Food after reading the reviews raving about the book posted on Amazon.com and because we used to enjoy Jacqui Malouf's show Hot off the Grill with Bobby Flay on Food Network Channel. However, we are extremely disappointed with the contents of Booty Food. The book is full of photos of Jacqui Malouf specifically choreographed for this book and the recipes are nothing to write home about. We had such high hopes for this book, but they all faded away after trying few recipes in the book. If you really want a cookbook for special occasions to give your girlfriend or wife, buy instead Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge. But if you find Ms. Malouf attractive and want a book of her photos with her significant other then buy this book. I guess our standards for good food are much higher than other reviewers'.

A simple concept that has been pondered and agonized for years. For centuries, food and sex has been linked... some of it are oysters, some of it is cobra's blood. Jaqui dispenses advice that does not deal with cobra's blood, but more readily found at your local grocery store (including cleaning products... i.e. clean up the joint before he/she comes over)and some pretty solid dating advice.
Let's face it, Bobby Flay's second bannana was the only reason why we guys watched Bobby; she's total eye candy, she's funny and she's into food. And she's written a nuts to bolts book on how to get the girl (or guy), centered around food.
For someone like me, I take the advice. I can cook circles around most... no idle boast. I welcome all challengers. But the dating thing, I can always use better information. Jacqui is irrevernt at times and very poinient at other times. Her language is breezy and fun, but drives some pretty solid points home... keep it simple, stupid!
If you want to impress, keep it tasty; but not so elaborate that you're spending all bloody night in the kitchen and not in the bedroom... except for a very special night. Then again, that's why the term "mis en plas" exists. Everything in it's place... plan ahead, prep ahead and you won't be stuck in the kitchen all night. And be yourself; keep your wits about you.
I don't know if this book will neccesarily help you in getting laid or finding that special someone that you're going to bring home to Mom and Dad, but this book ain't going to hurt your chances either. It's a fun read, the recipes are solid... and there are some way cute pics of Jacqui to boot.
And you don't have to grill the potatoes in the Grilled Red Bliss Potatoes with Wasabi Creme Fraiche either... boil till just done, chill 'em and slice 'em. Recipes like that are highly adaptable... improvisation in the kitchen is good for improvisation in the bedroom.
best of luck to all. And congratulations to Jacqui. It's a rock solid book.

It's funny, it's sassy and the recipes are to die for!!! The bacon-wrapped scallops, the mango-brie quesadillas, the chocolate pudding....forget about it! And Jacqui Malouf is so funny and real that it's like cooking with a best friend. She takes the pressure to be perfect off with her hilarious commentary and her get-real approach. And, she provides all kinds of shortcuts so that you can get back to the bedroom as quickly as possible. This book would be a great gift for seasoned cooks or people who are new in the kitchen, not to mention a great wedding shower gift!

Reading this cookbook is like talking to a girlfriend. Jacqui is personable, funny, sexy and wise in both the kitchen and the bedroom! I am the author of the food blog, Cafe L'Amour, and I review cookbooks dedicated to amorous cooking and aphrodisiacs. Jacqui has a picnic rating system that tickled me pink! The highest rating is "Booty" and I earned that when I started cooking the night before for a special picnic in Bryant Park with my lover...I also incorporated her 'Passion Pantry' and have been filling it up with all kinds of sultry deliciousness! You can see the full review at the link below. To your sexual appetite ...buy this book!

I devour cookbooks like some do novels, and this is one of the favorites. The author's conversational style and humor are addictive, and I have reread parts of the book many times. The recipes are solid, and I have served the pomegranate margaritas at several functions. I would recommend this book to anyone who is seduced by food as well as those who would like to seduce with food.

This book is great for all stages of dating. The ideas suggested and the recipes that go along with them are excellent. No regrets on this purchase.

My boyfriend and I bought this book on a whim a few nights ago, and we can't stop looking at it. I loved Jacqui Malouf on Hot Off the Grill, which is why I picked it up. I'm a HUGE foodie and like nothing more than good "food porn," as in gorgeous photographs of food. This book has wonderful photography that looks like you could just pick the food right up off of the page and dig in. The pictures of her are real and not too airbrushed. I love how she talks about her own relationship with her husband. The writing is funny and smart and incisive. I definitely think there is a link between people's ordering and eating behavior and their behavior in love, and she goes into that a lot. The selection of recipes for many occasions in a relationship is perfect. This book is a celebration of food and love, and I can't wait to try out some of the recipes. They are wonderful to read, and I think making them (then eating them) with my boyfriend will be a joy as well.
