Across the pond, our British friends recently conducted a nationwide survey asking food lovers what edible item was most likely to put them in the mood for love.

In no particular order:

  • Chocolate
  • Red Wine
  • Oysters
  • Whipped Cream
  • Avocados
  • Ice Cream
  • Hot Chillies
  • Salmon
  • Bananas
  • Asparagus (Really?)

And as a follow up to that, a top London chef is creating a complete meal featuring all top ten ingredients.

The six course meal starts with a champagne cocktail followed by a plate of oysters, and then a salmon and passion fruit tartar, served with a quail's egg yolk.

He finishes off the meal with a sultry 'chocolate and caviar' creation.

The chef promises his meal will stimulate the brain, encouraging it to produce the feel-good chemical, serotonin.

Whatever it leads to after that - I don't need to know.  I just hope you get home before bursting into flames!
