Naturally Sexy Ingredients
Before we dive into the recipes, there's one thing you should know about the ingredients you'll be using to prepare them. They are all aphrodisiacs!
Fun fact. Did you know that the word aphrodisiac comes from the Greek 'belonging to Aphrodite', the ancient Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty, identified with Venus by the Romans?
Aphrodisiac Qualities in Food
Aphrodisiac foods are those that stimulate the love senses either because their shape is arousing or because consuming them causes the body to chemically respond. Each Italian recipe in this course has a special sexy ingredient intended to set the stage for romance. Try using all your senses - sight, smell, taste, touch, sound - when enjoying the dishes, and you'll exponentially enhance your experience.
We actually eat a lot of aphrodisiac foods every day without even knowing it.
Pumpkin, celery, garlic, pine nuts, ginseng, apples, saffron, hot chilies, figs, asparagus, avocados, bananas, chocolate, pomegranates, oysters, red wine, salmon, almonds, walnuts, vanilla, eggplant, watermelon, honey, coffee, strawberries, cherries, artichokes ... just to mention a few.
