It’s easy for me to share 10 romantic dinner ideas with you, because I
cook this way almost every night. I only cook what I’m inspired to
create, and my wife, Heather has always been the muse behind my
creativity, from culinary college until today.
The most romantic meals have three elements; they are visually
appealing, they are pleasing to the palate, and they include aphrodisiac
ingredients for their effects, or just for conversation value.
For centuries, many foods have been associated with aphrodisiac
qualities. Can certain foods actually excite you more than others?
Perhaps there’s more myth than medicine behind most of these stories,
but other foods have been proven to have biological reactions similar to
being in love.
Here’s my top 10 romantic dinner ideas and why they made the list:
1) Raw (or almost raw) Fish – Seared Ahi Tuna with Steamed Asparagus and
Jasmine Rice - Raw fish can contain high levels of iron, perfect for
testosterone production. Plus, Asparagus is packed with potassium,
calcium, and Vitamin E, giving strength and stamina to the body. Plus,
asparagus looks sexual. I’ll leave it at that.
2) Black Beans - Sauteed Grouper, Black Beans with Goat Cheese, Sauteed
Green Beans with Red Peppers - Black beans were outlawed by the Catholic
Church in the 15th century because they were too nubile, too
reminiscent of a fetus, and thus would excite passions and create sin.
Black beans are high in protein and are said to increase fertility.
3) Oysters and Clams - Baked Clams or Oysters Casino - Shellfish have
long been associated with fertility, and oysters a particular favorite
of legendary lovers like Cassanova. Modern science tells us that
oysters, clams, mussels and other bi-valves are loaded with zinc, key to
performance for both sexes.
4) Scallops - Poached Scallops over Brown Rice - Oysters have gotten
most of the lore and fame of aphrodisiac qualities that remain today.
However, Scallops were thought the most potent fertility food even
before oysters. The scallop shell became the symbol of fertility to
medieval Christians. Aphrodite, the Greek goddess, as well as Venus, the
Roman goddess of fertility and love are both associated with scallop
shells through timeless artwork.
5) Herbs and Seasonings - Fresh Tomato Pie with Basil Chiffonade - Herbs
and spices have always been rare and expensive, until modern day. Most
explorers of centuries past were in search of herbs and spices. The more
rare the item, the more lore and myth that surrounds it. However, fresh
herbs release intoxicating aromas that awaken many senses beyond taste.
6) Eggs - Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise - Eggs ARE the symbol of birth.
It’s just about the only embryo we actually eat. It’s not surprising
that they’ve long been associated with passion and fertility, as it was
thought raw eggs consumed before consummation increased sexual vigor and
fertility. Today, it’s known that the high quality protein found in
eggs metabolize quickly in the body and aid in cell structure.
Plus, if you make Eggs Benedict for a loved one, I guarantee positive results!
7) Avocado - Poached Salmon with Angel Hair Pasta and Guacamole - The
aphrodisiac lore behind avocados comes from its appearance. At the same
time, they were seen as resembling a testicle by the Aztecs, and thought
to be too suggestive of the curves of a woman to many other ancient
cultures. The truth is that avocados have the highest level of protein
you can find in a plant. Only animal proteins are greater.
8) Shrimp and Shellfish - Shrimp Cocktail with Fancy Sauces- One of the
simplest meals to assemble, but the most effect from a romantic dinner
idea standpoint, simple steamed shrimp can be one of the easiest and
best meals. Lobster, crabs, shrimp and other shellfish are high in iron
and essential fatty acids that are said to improve performance. An array
of dipping sauces will give you a wide variety of exciting flavors, and
an opportunity to share.
9) Hot Peppers - Hot Wings with Fresh Cut Fries Capsaicin, the heat in
hot peppers, increases heart rate, dialates blood vessels, and deepens
breathing. Eat some hot wings, or Indian Food, and your body will react
as if you’re in love.
10) Strawberries - Chocolate Covered Strawberries or Strawberry Crepes -
Strawberries ARE the signal of Spring all over the world. They arrive
when all the birds are singing, and the bees are gathering honey. The
heart shape and sweet red juice of strawberries have given them special
place in aphrodisiac lore. Combining strawberries and cream or chocolate
gives you two elements to excite. If you feed strawberries to your
loved one, then you’re using them to their full effect.
To enjoy the great flavor and romantic qualities of chocolate, you don’t
have to wait for dessert. Adding Chocolate Chip Pancakes or Chocolate
Scones to breakfast, Cocoa Mole Chicken BLT at lunch, and Mole Pesto
Shrimp for dinner will enable you to have Chocolate at Every Meal.
Just because my wife supported me through culinary school so I could
follow my passion doesn’t mean I owe her a lifetime of dinners. She may
think so, but she doesn’t realize that learning to cook is not only a
way to enjoy my passion, but it’s a way to express passion as well.
I’m excited to create new meals using aphrodisiac foods. You don’t need
to be a professional chef to prepare a meal for the one you love. You
don’t need to be Cassanova to be romantic. You just need some romantic
dinner ideas and the rest will follow.

burning question on your mind is “What should I cook?” There are many,
many websites on the internet that have barbeque recipes and searching
through all of them is time consuming. Listed below are five fantastic
websites that you will find yourself going to time and time again for
culinary inspiration. Peruse the sites yourself and add them to your
favorites. You will not be sorry that you did.
This particular website has a specific tab located at the top of the
home page that concerns all things grilling related. Alton Brown offers a
crash course on barbeque basics, including a video called “How to Grill
Like a Pro.” If you are already familiar with the basic aspects of
cooking on a grill, you can skip that part and head right to Bobby
Flay’s section that includes his ten best recipes. The website includes
different toppings for hotdogs and choosing vegetables that are in
season to keep your meals fresh and interesting. If you are tired of the
same old pasta salads that you have been making for years, the site
offers 100 pasta salad recipes as well. Food Network’s site is full of
fun and inspirational techniques and recipes to keep you grilling all
There is a tab at the top of the homepage that is labeled “Food and

has a search box for the recipes. Typing “Grill” into the search section
yields 78 results. The recipes include everything from chicken to

the recipes tab over the search box. Simply typing the word “barbeque”
into the search field yielded 584 recipes. Paula Deen has recipes on the

that they want to use. For example, clicking on the boxes for “beef”,
“all vegetables” and burgers brings up 19 results to choose from. This
is a great way to use what you already have to prepare a fun meal.
This website is run by “Barbeque Bob” Quinn and is brimming with

some time due to having so many choices of links to explore.
Wherever you begin your search for the perfect barbeque recipes, you
will definitely find a plethora of options on any of these five sites.
The most difficult part will be which technique to try first.
Grilling can be a fun, family activity during weekends. Spend your lazy
afternoons in your backyard, and take out those grillers for a grilled
chicken for your dinner.
Learning how to grill is not as hard as you would see on television. All
you need is the proper temperature for your griller especially if you
are using an electric grill. Nevertheless, if you have the conventional
griller, try to find some dried wood or charcoal. Ignite the coals or
wood by placing crumpled papers below each coal and then set the papers
on fire. Do not pour gasoline on the coals or dried wood. The smoke
coming from the coals will give a gasoline-like aroma to your grilled
meat. These are your best weapons in grilling.
Choose the best part of the chicken. I usually use chicken thighs and
legs since they are the fattiest parts of the chicken. These parts will
yield a juicy, barbecued chicken. Although these may sound unhealthy,
the taste is incredibly delicious. Some would still prefer grilling
chicken breasts with the skins on.
Before you start grilling your chicken, do not forget to marinate them
at least overnight. Yes, overnight. This is because the longer you
marinade your meat, the better absorption of flavors happens. I prefer
to use store-bought marinades as these save much preparation time in the
kitchen. The downside of most ready-made marinades is their high sodium
content. But if you have time, you can make your own marinade from
scratch. In the recipe below, the marinade and the chicken were simmered
together to speed up the process of grilling and also to let the
flavors marry together. I like Asian-style marinades such as this:
For every kilo of chicken:
½ cup light soy sauce (available in the Asian section of grocery stores)
2-3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 medium stalk of lemon grass (pounded)
3 cloves crushed garlic
1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
Combine all the above ingredients in a heavy skillet and let it boil for
two minutes. Add in the chicken and simmer for another five minutes.
Drain the chicken in a colander and reserve the marinade for basting
during grilling. Basting is necessary so that the chicken won’t dry out.
The marinade can also be made as a sauce by making a basic roux. This
is simply done by placing a tablespoon of butter on a non-stick pan and
let it cook for minutes. Pour over the marinade and whisk until the
sauce thickens. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings accordingly.
You can also opt to make a dry, rub marinade. This dry rub is comprised
of herbs and spices and a little oil. For chicken, dried or fresh
tarragon and rosemary blends together very well. If you want a spicier,
grilled chicken, add a pinch of chili powder and cayenne pepper. There
are limitless marinades for grilled chicken. A little imagination and
creativity are the keys. Make sure that when grilling the chicken, never
let the flame flare up. This will result in burnt chicken. This does
not appeal both to the eyes and to the palate. If this occurs, sprinkle a
little water over the flame. Some also like their grillers to be
covered during the grilling process.
Personally, I liked mine uncovered. There is just something about the
smoke which is, for me, the essence of grilling. Grilled foods are best
served warm, right off the grill with some salads or other vegetables of
