A deep dive into the world of aphrodisiacs
4 out of 5 stars
The cover on this is really… titillating. But, in all seriousness, the cover makes use of a cleverly placed food item to look like something else. I now quickly realize that this review is probably going to be very hard to write without getting flagged for content on Amazon.
The first thing that popped out to me was the photography in this. These might be some of the most beautiful food photographs I’ve seen in a cookbook in quite some time. I can tell that the photographer spent a lot of time perfecting each shot (which is nearly impossible with food, especially hot food).
The recipes themselves were interesting. There are different sections for the different aphrodisiacs which made it easy to figure out what you wanted to cook with and go from there. It allows couples an easy way to try new things.
I was intrigued by this book for a few reasons, one being it’s always nice to get new recipes, especially for food that I someone wouldn’t normally cook with. And I wanted to see what else was inside.
Petrenko does a great job explaining out the recipes and the ingredients where necessary making Intimacy on the Plate a great book for couples, especially foodie couples (you know who you are!)
I’m glad that I got this cookbook. I will definitely pull it out from time to time to spice things up.
