My Review:

I love cooking! I love cooking books of all sorts, I love having a lot of kitchen supplies (that I may never use) and I love this book! And I’ll give you two more reasons: all recipes here are using as main ingredients some of my favorite elements (like fish and fruits) and it covers a range of recipes I was not focused on before – aphrodisiacs.

The book is very well structured and each chapter introduces the reader with the qualities of each element. The combinations are easy to follow and they are very detailed. It has everything you need for your taste buds.

Do you like salads? Well, here you have over 30 salad recipes destined to boost your love side. You’ve got fish, seafood, chocolate, fruits and even drinks. You can prepare a healthy diner for your partner just by following these easy instructions. I found them friendly and well detailed and definitely you don’t have to be an expert to prepare them.

I like the index at the back of the book, as it helped me identify some of my other favorite ingredients and where or how I can combine them with the main elements of this book.

As for my actual cooking experience, I have tried recipe no. 26 “Podium Salad”. It turned out really fun to make and tasty. I would have added a picture here but, well… I made only a little and I was anxious to see how it was and I forgot….

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got dinner to prepare and I need this book! To conclude, I find it very useful and a title worth having, regardless if you cook for yourself or others. The recipes are not only aphrodisiacs but also tasty and fun to make. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!
