Loved Up Cooking !

The most tempting aphrodisiac recipes
Foods with supposed aphrodisiac properties range from the well-known oysters and chocolate to more surprising products like asparagus, bananas and almonds. Even if the ingredients don’t have quite the effect they're supposed to, cooking a sensual meal with your loved one is a great way to stir up some passion.
Oysters Kilpatrick
The ultimate starter for a night of romantic cooking, Oysters Kilpatrick is an easy dish to prepare. Fry three rashes of bacon and add two tablespoons of breadcrumbs, frying until browned. Mix a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce with four tablespoons of double cream and pour over the top of twelve oysters (remember to ask your fishmonger to open them for you). Add the bacon and breadcrumbs, pop under the grill until brown and serve with a lemon wedge.
Lobster Thermidor
A classic aphrodisiac dish, lobster is the ultimate main course for a splash-out home-cooked meal. Prepare the lobsters by breaking off the claws, halving them and washing the heads out. Put the heads to one side, then scoop out the claw meat and dice. Make the sauce by simmering dry white wine and finely chopped shallot in a pan until the alcohol has nearly evaporated. Mix in tarragon, parsley, paprika, Dijon mustard, Tabasco sauce, lemon juice, parmesan and softened butter. Place the lobster meat and sauce in the shells, and grill on a high heat setting for five to eight minutes until brown, serving with salad and new potatoes. 
Chocolate Fondant

Easy to prepare, the chocolate fondant is all about timing and precision. To get that perfect melted centre, bake the puddings at 200°C in a fan oven or at gas mark six. Getting the right temperature is crucial, so invest in one of a great range of cookers to make sure this tasty dish comes out right every time. Leave them for around ten to twelve minutes, until the fondants have formed a slight crust and come away from the moulds or ramekins. Sit for one minute before dishing them out, although if your cooking has worked, you might not even make it to dessert.
