Bought this for the other half for valentine's day as he enjoys cooking and we both enjoy intercourse so it seemed like a good investment into the relationship. The book itself is very nice looking, it's hardback with tasteful pictures of nude models wearing the foods that the recipes feature.
The foods themselves are supposedly arousing however it appears as though the general idea of the book is that the act of preparing food for your loved one or with your loved one is in itself an intimate experience. Though some of the food may be taken to be sensual to consume ie: strawberries, chocolate, coffee, figs. Figs are apparently aphrodisiacs, as well as black beans, artichokes, rosemary and asparagus so i also learnt something new from this book. Included with the recipes are some little intimate anacdotes from couples concerning the food, and their little romantic experiences, nothing explicit but with plenty of hinting, the personal touch to the book is certainly original and it's nice for the book to contain some romance other than the nude models.
The recipes are also good, a lot of them are very original and they encourage you to use ingredients that may otherwise go neglected, the recipes also cover various types of dish including alcoholic drinks, desserts, main courses and the like. Some of the recipes require very few ingredients, some of them contain over a dozen so you can pick a simplistic recipe or a more complicated one depending on how much time/effort you can put into it. Overall, both me and my partner are pleased and it's now the first cookbook to get pride of place in a bedroom rather than a kitchen.
