Because I’m considered a leading authority on aphrodisiac foods, I’m always asked for tips on planning a memorable romantic evening or a great Valentine’s Day or a dinner to seduce someone…you get the idea. In answer to the myriad of questions on creating romance, I’ve written several articles with great tips for a romantic date night at home. And, as the author of award-winning aphrodisiac cookbooks, I’ve created hundreds of recipes layered with aphrodisiacs specifically to spark romance. I’ve also gotten some of my favorite food industry professionals, like Chef Diane Brown, who wrote The Seduction Cookbook, to write their own articles on their fantasy romantic evenings.
