9781909313149: Cook Your Date into Bed

Get a head start in the dating game with this look at the relationship between food and romance, and the big part it plays in any quest for love (or lust). Shakespeare claimed music was the food of love, which is a pretty ridiculous statement as food is clearly the food of love. You can't say food is the music of love, it doesn't make sense, so why should it work the other way round? In this case, the bard is definitely talking out of his unquestionably eloquent backside. Anyway, as food is the food of love, it's the perfect accompaniment to days and nights spent wooing members of the opposite sex (or same sex, we're not here to judge). If you spend even a short amount of time with the object of your desire, there'a good chance food will be involved. Whatever the reason for the two of you eating together, there's no doubt a story that goes with it or a recipe to share, and that's what Cook Your Date Into Bed does. It looks at the relationship between hooking up and eating out, gives tasty recipes for dinners, snacks, breakfasts and cocktails you can make yourself, and also laughs at the ridiculousness of the whole process. After all, most situations can be dealt with via the introduction of food, or booze, and dating is no different. So let us begin.

Product Description:

Frustrated at the cheesy pile of utter toss usually written about the relationship between food and romance, Helen Graves decided to do something about it. Cook Your Date Into bed is an anti-cliche cynical sideways glance at the genre backed up by food and drink recipes that will make you look totally slick with minimal effort. Every situation is covered, from the classic evening dinner date scenario to the morning after (wahey!), the picnic date, the cinema date, right through to the post pub munchies. There is a lot of bitching about silly assumptions along the way, like the concept of aphrodisiac foods, tirelessly rolled out every year around Valentine s day, the pros and cons of the various dating scenarios and some horror stories involving food and dating, collected from Graves (brave) friends. When it comes down to it, most situations can be dealt with via the introduction of food and or booze, and dating is no different. So let us begin...
