The New InterCourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook

Terrace Publishing
The old saying says, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." This holds true for the ladies as well. This book covers foods and provides recipes that are perfect for romance and love.

Using food as an aphrodisiac

Not many cookbooks can claim to be sexy as well as functional. "InterCourses : An Aphrodisiac Cookbook" brings sex to the kitchen in a classy, entertaining manner with not only more than 85 recipes, but also a collection of sensual food art.

Authors Hopkins and Lockridge cover 17 foods with purported aphrodisiac qualities. The food sections include history, lore and other musings, plus a selection of related recipes for each topic all designed to get the saliva flowing as well as the blood. Recipes are prefaced with romantic quotes, serving suggestions, and various comments from recipe-testers, the authors, and others.

The book is further divided into chapters covering such topics as matching recipes to astrological signs, season-specific recipes, recipes suited to any hour of the day, and those best suited for a blind date or a 50th anniversary private celebration. There are even non-edible recipes for making homemade aromatic massage oils.

The proverbial icing on the cake has to be the sensual, yet classy photography of Ben Fink which so simply pulls together the entire concept of the book with beauty and grace. A taste of Fink's artistic genius adorns the cover of the book: a naked woman whose midsection is completely covered in luscious red strawberries.

Gourmets and gourmands alike will find something to admire within the pages of InterCourses. The recipes are intriguingly different without being difficult. You may be tempted to display this book on your coffee table, but be sure to take it into your kitchen and share it with one you love.
