food love

Valentine's Day. Yeah, it's kind of a silly hallmark holiday, but the food involved makes all the heart-shaped stuff and glittery teddy bears worth it.

There's wine, of course. I can't think of many things much more sensual than rich red wine. Here's a good guide to choosing wine.

A couple of romantic food books that look quite interesting; Intercourses and Aphrodite.

If you're not up to reading, and would rather snuggle up to a romantic movie, how 'bout a romantic food themed movie? I recommend Chocolat (mmm, Johnny Depp) and Like Water For Chocolate.

Um, yeah guess that brings us to a very important valentine food: CHOCOLATE! Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate. And a review of the last one's masala chocolate bar. Sounds interesting, and yummy.

How about a nice date? Find out the most romantic restaraunts in your neck of the woods.

And if you offer to take me to White Castles, all you'll get from me is a paper napkin and some bittersweet heart candies. I mean I'll admit the White Castles candle-lit dinner is a quirky idea, but it's still stinks in there.

Speaking of those heart candies, here's a candy heart generator. fun!

Valentine's traditions around the world.

Back to food:
"The Aztecs called the avocado tree "Ahuacuatl which translated means "testicle tree". "...and other interesting aphrodisiac info.

Oh, and this might just be the ultimate romantic food...bread, chocolate & olive oil...all together. I'm yours!

So light some candles, throw on something a little more comfortable, pop the champagne, and read mushy love poems. Even if you're spending this one alone, there's still all that chocolate, so don't be sad...Celebrate the holiday that celebrates some fabulous food!

Be mine,
