We live in an age, where we have all varieties of food right at our fingertips and sex can be an easily spoken topic at the dinner table. Food and sex are both very important, passionate affairs in our lives; except, they are almost always performed in two very far and separate rooms. Then, what is it about food and sex that we always associate together?
Nevertheless, I persevered and tried to pick out a simple yet, ravishing meal that would ensure a lot of finger licking, pushing all dinnerware aside, and displace the idea that food and sex could not be succeeded in one room. As I searched through the cookbook, anticipating a Casablanca afternoon, making a love potion to seduce my unwilling test subject, I had to stop fantasizing. First, I realized that I would have to find these items and then learn how to use a broiler or an oven. If you do not regularly cook and do not know what a puttanesca is, the Seduction Cookbook will be a little hard to interpret. The directions were vague in some recipes and it was hard to deduce what the author meant by grilled bread perfumed with olive oil. I didn't have any unused perfume bottle, so I thought a water bottle could be a good substitute.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to succeed in seducing my test subject but, I did enjoy fantasizing about it the whole afternoon.
This is definitely a cookbook for lovers. The words border on very graphic descriptions and can definitely stir up some actions before the placemats are set. But, unfortunately there are no love potions in here to seduce unwilling test subjects.
The Seduction Cookbook is a fascinating collection of recipes and a very sensual introduction. Diane Brown has a very unique approach to showing us what she's made of. A lover herself, she is definitely trying to make others into lovers too. She has carved a place for herself in the male dominated world of culinary arts. How she does it is very titillating, and I recommend this to all the enthusiastic lovers and culinary lovers also.
