Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

While the jury's out on which foods, if any, are true aphrodisiacs, the authors contend that "anyone who has served an elaborate candlelit meal, painstakingly prepared with love, knows the potential power of food." The newly expanded and revised edition of this 1997 cookbook features a bevy of recipes that may win the heart of that special someone. Ranging from simple Strawberries Drenched in Honeyed Cream to the more elaborate Orange Blossom Panna Cotta and Grilled Vietnamese Gingered Beef Rolls, lovers of all stripes are sure to discover a new favorite. They'll also find winning variations of resilient standbys, such as classic raw oysters dressed up in a sexy Thai Chile Mignonette. Organized by featured ingredient (including chocolate, artichokes, rosemary and even edible flowers), recipes are straightforward, and virtually all the ingredients can be found at a well-stocked grocery (though the authors include sources for rarer ingredients like artisan chocolates and Middle Eastern specialties). Most dishes include comments from couples who tested the recipes, adding to the dishes' allure and fostering the book's romantic sensibility. Highlighted with elegant photography (of models and food, not dishes), this will make a thoughtful gift for couples at any stage of a relationship.

I bought this as a gift for a bridal shower. I don't know the bride too well and I wasn't sure how naughty her gifts would be, but it's a bridal shower so it's supposed to be a little naughty, right? Anyway, it was a big hit. It was the only naughty gift she received, everyone else got her kitchen stuff. I did my research before buying one of these cookbooks. There were several out there, but this one seemed to have the best recipes and was very well organized and appealing. It makes a great gift!

A friend of mine turned me on (ha ha) to this book when I was frantically looking for a suitable bridal shower gift for my sister. I ordered it a few days early with the intent to try out one of the recipes so that I knew the quality of what I was getting her.

I was not disappointed. In fact, my mind was blown.

I found a recipe for braised quail with grapes and pancetta. I arranged for the children to be away, spent a wonderfully furious hour and a half in the kitchen, and served up one of THE most memorable meals I have ever had--better even than eating at most top notch restaurants in town and at a fraction of the cost.

None of the ingredients in our recipe were aphrodisiacs in and of themselves, but my husband and I spent the entire meal exclaiming over the flavors, licking our fingers, and grinning at one another in an ecstasy of sensory marvels.

Needless to say, the cookbook was a huge hit at the shower, and I am now ordering a copy for myself. Valentine's dinner will be cooked from this book this year!

I am a bridesmaid in my friends upcoming wedding and wanted to get her a "naughty" gift that was not typical (lingerie) and this book seemed perfect! A naughty apron and a good bottle of wine would accompany the book perfectly! Her extended family and friends got her pots and pans - I gave her an interesting way to use them!

Can't speak to the value of this as an actual cookbook, but I purchased it for a bridal shower and it was a big hit. I paired it with a cutesy apron and it drew big giggles and blushing from the bride-to-be. Recipes sound good/normal and not weird like I would have expected. I may have been the only one to go off the registry and mine was definitely the only gift passed around. Not much fun for everyone to watch to bride unwrap a bunch of presents she already picked and we all chose from!

My friend bought this book for me on a lark, but 5 or more years later, I keep coming back to these recipes. I have friends begging me to make them chicken and asparagus black-bean enchiladas again. And the black russian cake is so good, it is actually dangerous because I cannot keep myself or my husband out of it. The tomato basil soup is a regular winter staple at my house. And the book is back on my desk because with the absolute success I have had using this book, I've got to try some more recipes.

I've had this book for a number of years, and I love it still. The photography is beautiful, the stories from different couples delightful, and the food delicious. The recipes are definitely doable, and a number of them are made in our household year round.

I got this as a bachelorette gift a few years ago, and although I've never made anything from it, it's been fun to skim through. I bought this for my best friend for HER bachelorette party THIS year, and she LOVES it. She claims to have made several dishes, but not noticed anything 'special' for dessert. ;) The book is in great condition and a fun piece to add to a bachelorette party gift/party! :) Very clever.
