From Michelle: I e-met Rekaya Gibson when she became involved in TEAM RBTB @ Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes. Since then, she's become a Bella, and this author of the upcoming "The Food Seductress" came to mind immediately when I was looking for someone to get us all riled up and thinking about the sensuality, romanticism and plain good sexy fun of food. Please offer her your sultriest, "Chocolate and I have become rather close" Bella buongiorno...
From Rekaya: Hi Bellas! Do you remember the first time you met a smooth chocolate cake? Your eyes widened; your lips moistened; and your heart pounded. All you managed to say was “Oh!”
When was the last time you felt that way about your mate? A nice dessert will do it to you every time. You don’t even have to taste it first. You can simply imagine what it would feel like touching your tongue.
If you have ever experienced this, then it is more likely than not that you have experienced the romance of food. Sure, it nourishes the body and mind, but it also plays on our five senses and emotions. For example, the scent of cinnamon and sage during the holidays make you feel safe and warm no matter if you are at home or at someone else’s house. You give the pumpkin pie and the turkey your undivided attention no matter what – I know I do.
When you pull those homemade biscuits out the oven, you quickly place them on a plate. What is the first thing that you do? You feel them. Their hot, soft, and round bodies excite you. Before you know it, you are having an unhealthy relationship with the dough man!
Try dangling steak, gravy, and potatoes in front of a man. He will follow you to the ends of the earth just to get a taste. The grin on his face takes him some place special. Perhaps the love that goes into preparing meals transmits pheromones to the souls of its diner – you never know.
Don’t get me wrong, the romance of food will let you down. Your unconditional love will fall by the waist side – literally. The crunch of your favorite chips will fade over time. Then you will end up writing romance novels about food!
Have you experienced the romance of food? If so, what food did you carry on a love affair with? Is it over or are you still in a relationship?
