FoodieWednesday: Aphrodisiacs

Wifespeaks: Foodie Wednesday

This week, we’re talking aphrodisiacs over at WifeSpeaks.  Interesting, yes? ;)

Wikipedia defines an aphrodisiac as “a substance which is used in the belief that it increases sexual desire.”  Hmmm…

GourmetSleuth.Com lists the following as aphrodisiacs:

  • Aniseed
  • Asparagus
  • Almond
  • Arugula
  • Asafetida
  • Avocado
  • Bananas
  • Basil (sweet basil)
  • Broccoli Rabe (And Other Mustard Greens)
  • Chocolate
  • Carrots
  • Coffee
  • Fennel
  • Figs
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Honey
  • Liquorice (licorice)
  • Mustard
  • Nutmeg
  • Oysters
  • Pine Nuts
  • Pineapple
  • Raspberries and Strawberries
  • Truffles
  • Vanilla
  • Wine

That’s quite a list, isn’t it?  I’m betting, that if aphrodisiacs do work the way they’re believed to, you and your partner won’t be talking about term insurance quotes after dessert. ;) You can read more about the food items listed above at GourmetSleuth.Com.

Looking at the list above, I didn’t realize we had at least 3 aphrodisiacs in our BBQ feast last Sunday, hosted by a dear friend of mine…


The biggest and reddest strawberries…

And for dessert, Sacher Torte from Le Madelaine, a birthday gift from my gal pals…

The big question you might be dying to ask is, did these work their aphrodisiac magic?  Well…that’s for me to know and for you to not know.  Hee hee. :D
