As chef Mark Douglas Hill, creator of Bloodshot vodka points out in the introduction to his new book The Aphrodisiac Encyclopaedia, “an exuberant enjoyment of gastronomy does not always prelude a postprandial degustation of more fleshy delights...” Or, in other words, enjoying a rich, indulgent meal with your loved one can quite often put a dampener on getting amorous later on. But there are certain ingredients that fuel, rather than extinguish the flames of desire. Hill explores these in his book, which includes heart-throb dishes such as truffle linguine with savoy cabbage and lardons, and rose and pomegranate Turkish delight. From vitamin E-rich foods such as asparagus and avocado to the circulation-stimulating properties of chilli, here we give you some aphrodisiac-based recipes to try out on your object of desire.
