Asparagus is often listed as an ingredient of a romantic, sensual dinner for two.
I like asparagus, and romantic or not, I think it's both pretty on the plate and delicious to taste.
But perhaps even more frequently seen on that list of romantic ingredients is oysters.
And I have say, I just cannot see anything appealing about them. Just thinking about my
experience of eating them still makes me shudder.
For me, its not so much the food, but the atmosphere in which you eat together
that creates the romance.
As far as food goes,
starting off with perfectly spiced grilled shrimp
followed by a sensously creamy pasta,
and ending with a velvety chocolate fondue
with skewers of fresh fruit and luscious berries
sounds pretty good to me.
But to create the real ambience,
music, lights and fragrance are crucial.
How about you?
What would be on your romantic dinner menu?
