Put some Spice in your Valentine's Day!
Invite Pleasure with Delicious Aphrodisiacs.

For 5,000 years, people across the world have used aphrodisiacs to enhance their love lives. Isn't it about time to put the foods of love to work for you? With love in the air, set your intentions on getting the pleasure and love you deserve - and get the passion cooking!

Legendary foods make for yummy memories. Treat your sweetie to the classic foods of love and you may never, ever be forgotten. The Aztec ruler Montezuma became a legendary lover when a story spread that he drank more than 50 cups of chocolate a day to help him satisfy his harem of hundreds. And lovers across the world have relied on champagne for centuries to keep things sparkling and memorable. Then there's lobster - a treasured aphrodisiac from the sea, which is sensuously eaten by hand and is the favorite of many sweethearts for celebrating golden anniversaries.

A taste of European amore. No matter how you say it, "love" is always tastier with wonderful food. The Italians must know this secret well. They've created so many dishes that include time-tested aphrodisiac herbs, like rosemary, thyme, and garlic - which is said to stir passion with its heat. Remember to always share your garlic with your lover. The same goes for onions, another strong-odored food, which is reported to have been a popular aphrodisiac in Ancient Egypt. And let us not forget asparagus! Sources say that in 19th century France, bridegrooms ate large quantities of it to prepare for their wedding nights. And then there's figs. Lovers along the Mediterranean have enjoyed this plump, pleasure-inviting fruit since ancient times.

The raw pleasure of oysters. Oysters are known for their aphrodisiac power, and legend is that Casanova dined on 50 a day, together in a bathtub with his love of the moment. It's believed that oysters first got their reputation when Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, rose out of the sea on an oyster shell, after which she gave birth to Eros. In fact, aphrodisiacs were actually named for Aphrodite….But what about you and your loved one - how about some oysters tonight? Why not enjoy raw oysters with a sensual splash of the sea still in their shells? Or get things really sizzling with some Oyster Shooters, made with vodka and hot sauce? Muy caliente!

It's all in the eating. One of the most sensuous things you can do with food is feed it to your lover. Why not try a hand-fed feast for your next romantic interlude? One of the most traditional foods to share this way is grapes, but you can also hand-feed your sweetie other small fruits like blueberries, blackberries - or strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, to really put love in overdrive. Move on to the main course with a finger fest of sushi or Mediterranean kebabs and pastries. And for a really exotic end to your meal, serve up Persian Lovers Tea, made with rosewater, saffron, cardamom and sugar. Then your night can really begin!

Bedtime snacks. Keep something cool and refreshing nearby for when passion fires burn strong. Chilled water can be a wonderful treat at just the right time. You can also serve up ice cream, daiquiris or piña coladas, if you want to get a little more decadent. Or for something more playful, share a Popsicle or two. And, come morning, don't underestimate the value of breakfast in bed. There's nothing like a lazy morning meal, while you're propped up on pillows, to say "I love you."
