I was excited to receive this book, and I have been enjoying perusing the recipes -- it is full of such diverse dishes as lobster guacamole, spicy tuna sushi rolls, spiced pumpkin pancakes, red lentil soup with ghee-infused croutons, and chocolate mousse with brandied whipped cream. Most of the recipes offered in this book seem nutritious and they all look tasty.
This book also offers a different twist -- it looks at the use of aphrodisiacs, in cooking, to spark your sex life and enhance sexual health. It includes a lengthy alphabetical list of foods, including spices, said to have aphrodisiac qualities, looking at both the history and folklore and the proven health benefits. The recipes incorporate these foods, and they include appetizers, entrees, salads, desserts, and cocktails.

A Message From Linda De Villers PhD
I created this book to help you enjoy the remarkable relationship between food and sex. These two themes run brightly through my own life both personally and professionally, and are inseparable from my sense of who I am. Having counseled and taught thousands of people on the loving arts, and having fed nearly as many in my kitchens over the years, I find myself in a state of barely contained excitement over the opportunity to share what I know with you. I am the only author in this field to be credentialed in both sexual health and food, having worked and presented internationally and conducted research on the joint topic over the course of my career.
Thank you for sharing your comments about Simple Sexy Food with your blog visitors. It is a fun book - I like to learn the story behind the obvious info and Linda De Villers does that in this book. The history and the lore is very interesting for many of the items. I just kept thinking... who knew??ReplyDelete
interesting...sounds good. I have always wanted to try making my own sushi.ReplyDelete
Can't resist a foodie related post. We always giggle stuffing ourselves on oysters at a seafood buffet but can't say we've ever felt the aphrodisiac effects??ReplyDelete
Ah, the loving arts. My specialty.ReplyDelete
Interesting stuff, Steph. Though, at this point in my life I don't have time for quality, um, either.
I'm not sure I buy the concept of foods as aphrodisiacs but then again, we all watched 9 1/2 weeks and the refrigerator scene with bated breathe once upon a time, right? ;-) In any case, I do like to eat though so I might check the book out anyway.ReplyDelete
