Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743225287, Paperback)

Forget about that expensive dinner out and start planning the ultimate at-home seduction with Temptations, an entertaining cookbook that also includes fascinating information on a whole world of edible aphrodisiacs.

We've all heard of the oyster's naughty reputation, but what about licorice, onions, and chili peppers? For each food or flavoring, authors Ellen and Michael Albertson (Food as Foreplay) don't just supply their own recipe: they also include such amusing quotes as, "Where there is no wine, there is no love" from Euripides, historical recipes from sources like Madame du Barry and Empress Josephine, and food trivia on everything from lobsters (a female is called a "hen") to cholesterol.

The Albertsons cook per the "K.I.S.S." rule--"keep it simple, sweetheart." Even so, most of the recipes require a certain level of kitchen aptitude. Anyone comfortable with a blender can handle the pesto or brandied fruit cocktail, but the roasted figs and French onion soup may be a bit overwhelming to the novice.

The final chapters are devoted to practical suggestions on improving your sex life, and include everything from babysitting tips to recommendations about daily vitamin supplements. Whether your sights are aimed at the kitchen or the bedroom, this warm little book can teach you the true meaning of temptation. --Jill Lightner
