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 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!
