Cooking in the Nude: Playful Gourmets
comes with a warning on the back cover: "Playful Gourmets
is intended for lovers and potential lovers. Excessive use of this book may result in loss of sleep. We suggest you reserve these recipes for only the most special occasions." In Playful Gourmets
, authors Debbie and Steve Cornwell present a range of recipes that are both delicious and flirtatious. From "Appeteaser" to "Piece de No Resistance," the Cornwells cover every aspect of a well-planned meal, yet they seldom mention desserts. (How you elect to conclude the meal is entirely up to you.) The recipe names are simultaneously suggestive and goofy (One Night Stand, Wok on the Wild Side), and the menus include both naughty and nice suggestions, making Playful Gourmets
, one in a series of Cooking in the Nude cookbooks, as much fun to read as it is to cook from.
