Welcome back to the Afrodita project: I’m exploring aphrodisiac dishes, stories and tips from Isabel Allende’s legendary book: Aphrodite.

If you haven’t read it, and really love food, you must do it, now.

One chapter of Allende’s book describes how sexy cooking is. Guess what? I agree. Cooking together, cooking for someone you want to seduce, observing someone cooking to seduce you… aaaaah. Unusual but wonderful.

But beware: you absolutely need a few things to make this happen. Choose one:

  • very good kitchen skills,
  • very simple recipes or
  • very very consolidated recipes.

You need to be sure of what you are doing, you have to know your tools and ingredients and you must be able to enjoy a conversation with the other person at the same time.

If not… buy something, give it your final personal touch and… lie!!!!

A curry dish is perfect for the intent: you can cook a wonderful basmati rice so your house smells like homemade food, and then simply serve it with a delicious and delivered curry dish.

If not… here is a perfect, super easy (Aphrodite inspired), Turkish yogurt sauce recipe you can serve with naan bread, turkey or chicken (even just oven baked) to turn them gourmet in a minute.
