Fire Her Up With These 4 Sexy Foods

Curtis Stone tells us what foods have the power of a sexy woman.

Food has personality. Some come off cool and stylish; other types are as classic as the girl next door. Food can be challenging, charming, and sexy as hell. It’s the opposite of starch. I love bread as much as the next guy, but I’ve never had a piece that made me think, “Wow, what was that?” Like a sexy woman, what makes food sensual is largely in the eye of the beholder. There are a few items, however, that rarely miss the mark. Each is sexy because of a particular overwhelming quality, an incomparable essence that takes you by surprise, whether it’s the flavor, smell, appearance, or vibe.

 
1. Champagne
Nothing says celebration like champagne. From the ritual of placing the bottle in a bucket of ice to the way the cork makes that characteristic pop to those nose-tickling bubbles, just the sight of a bottle of champagne makes you think, “Oh, we’re doing that.” There are many great sparkling wines from all around the world, but take note that only bubbly made in Champagne, France, can be labeled true champagne.

2. Oysters
Whether it’s their sweet-and-salty pheromone-like smell or super-silky texture, oysters have been considered aphrodisiacs since the dawn of man. I like that there are so many different species, each with its own special texture and flavor. You’re courting the local beauty when you sit down to a platter of Wellfleet oysters. They’re at their best in the fall and winter, particularly if you’re eating them raw on the half shell. When picking them out, choose the smallest oysters, which will be younger and more tender.

3. Chocolate
It’s decadent, it makes you happy, and it melts in your mouth. Chocolate can’t help but be sexy. Choose dark chocolate with at least 70% cacao. It has a touch of earthiness that balances the luscious sweetness. Melt it into a fondue, turn it into a chocolate mousse, or just let a piece dissolve on your tongue. As a bonus, dark chocolate is super-high in antioxidants. There’s nothing sexier than a long life.

4. Truffles
There’s something primal about truffles. One of the most rare and expensive foods in the world is routed out of the ground by pigs, and looks like a lump of dried dung. But where the mushrooms fall short in the looks department, they make up in allure. Their extremely pungent scent is intoxicating. They have the ability to command a dish and transform a simple bowl of fettuccini and olive oil into an unforgettable meal. Fresh truffles are in season from late fall to midwinter and should be used as soon as possible after purchase.
