Well, well, well looks like a simple Google search for recipes containing avocado and honey, has led me unknowingly into the seedier side of the Foodie-verse. Yes my dears, did you know that there is a whole section of cookbooks devoted to the goals of seduction and sensual (culinary) surprise?
The interplay of food and physical desire are as old as time. Just look at the biblical
Song of Songs or read/watch “Like Water For Chocolate“, if you need a refresher. Still, I must admit some of these titles made me more than a little shy 🙂
For your edification!
