Overview

Booty Food n. Any food that causes weak knees, accelerated heartbeat, tingly body parts, and other symptoms traditionally associated with falling in love.

In the first guide for readers passionate about love and food, Jacqui Malouf, comedian and TV food personality, combines two of life's most primal drives. Equal parts naughty and nice, Booty Food is filled with laugh-out-loud advice about dating, sex, and relationships as well as more than seventy delicious yet user-friendly recipes designed to complement each stage of a long-lasting love affair.

Not just your run-of-the-mill aphrodisiac cookbook, Booty Food takes you on a culinary road trip through the major stages of a relationship-with tried and true tips on first date eating, seductive yet simple suggestions for the first home-cooked meal, menus for meeting the parents and friends, and imaginative dishes and desserts for keeping a long-term relationship hot and satisfying. Jacqui also serves up wildly original ideas for filling your "Passion Pantry" and, when you're ready for round two, dishes out tantalizing treats and tips in "Cheese: Nature's Viagra."

The recipes and gorgeous photographs by Ben Fink are just as tantalizing: Fresh Oysters with Red Wine Mignonette. Mango Brie Quesadillas. Sea Bass with Green Curry-Coconut Sauce and Nectarine Pico de Gallo. Pomegranate Margaritas. Lobster Eggs Benedict Poached in Champagne Butter. And Chocolate Souffle Cake with Chocolate Glaze and Shaved Chocolate. Destined to be flour-dusted and dog-eared, Booty Food is the ultimate guide to finding your soul mate inside and outside of the kitchen.

… Malouf is a charmer. What she gives us here, in addition to dozens of photographs of herself in various candlelit stages of undress, is a very funny primer on how to woo with food.

Publishers Weekly
If Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw cooked, and wrote a cookbook, this might be it. It's a sassy collection of recipes and menus for the occasions and stages of relationships (from flings to marriage), with dating advice, sex sidebars and a dash of etiquette-a primer on "caviar for newbies"; a key to the pronunciation of wines and international foods; suggestions for successful key exchange-thrown in for good measure. Malouf, co-host of Hot off the Grill with Bobby Flay and host of the WE network's Full Frontal Fashion, offers stories from her own dating life along with simple-chic recipes such as Funky Mimosas for the morning-after breakfast; Pan-Roasted Chicken with Rosemary-Lemon Butter, Blue Cheese Arugula Salad with Honeyed Walnuts, and Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Vinaigrette for the first home-cooked meal; and Chicken Ramani, Cucumber Raita, and Minty Cuban Mojitos for keeping things "hot." Readers in any phase of a relationship-and especially readers in no relationship at all-will be entertained and informed by this volume and will enjoy its modern design and fun photographs by Ben Fink.
