A few years ago, my mom sent me this Intercourses (an Aphrodisiac Cookbook) as a fun Valentine's Day Gift.
It is awesome. Really and truly. The cookbook covers 19 sensual foods claimed as aphrodisiacs, and is organized by the 19 foods (asparagus, chocolate, avocado, honey and strawberries just to name a few). Great recipes, beautiful photos, and fun!
The recipes are pretty simple to follow, and of the ten or so I have tried, all excellent. The Black Russian Chocolate Cake is my favorite dessert for sure, and the avocado pasta dish is awesome.
So, if you are looking for a Valentine's Day gift, this is a winner.
