Food and Beverage In Relationships


A Couple In Love

You’ve probably had a “song” with that special someone, you know, “Oh, they’re playing our song!” Music is a soundtrack to our culture, but so is food and beverage. With food, you have those meals that you know you can lean on when things get rough, those meals that act almost as a link between two people and can best be described as orgasmic. Enjoying a spectacular meal is like sex without the work, plus you can watch TV or have a conversation while you do it.

Romantic Bed

With wine, it could be the bottle you had on an anniversary date, or a bottle from a winery at which you spent a whimsical, sexed-up weekend. It could be that boutique producer that only you and your “other” knew about.

Whatever it is, food and strong drink are woven into a relationship as movies and music.

Bleeding Heart

So what happens when you break up?

I had an ex-girlfriend once, and I recall there being certain meals or wines that would remind me of the relationship. She had really terrible taste in wine, so I don’t have the problem with my wine selections. These things linger, and the stronger your appreciation for food, the longer they’ll linger.

Use it as an opportunity to explore new food and wines. You’d be surprised at the trouble you can get in with $20 at a farmer’s market…

Anyone out there think I’m crazy?

    OK, what kind of yahoo has sex without watching TV?

    Memory is located next to smell in your brain, which is why wine and food and sex can trigger so many memories. For example, every time I smell a corked bottle of wine I think of an old girlfriend–something about a wet dog.

    You’d be surprised how much trouble you can get in just about anywhere for $20–ask Hugh Grant.

    And in answer to your final question–yes.

    Funny, I was just putting some ideas down for a future post on the blog for Valentine’s Day and what constitutes an “aphrodisiac”…here’s some of what I’ve come up with:

    Whether it is an oyster slipping from its shell to your mouth, or someone engaging you in a kiss, the sensuality of food is what makes it a turn on, not its chemical properties. Once an amazing meal has been prepared, served and eaten, once the warmth of the wine and spices are pulsing in your blood, and once the anticipation of a kiss enters your soul, only then will you know that ANYTHIN has the potential and capacity to become an aphrodisiac.

    Whoa, that is intense…I’ve decided to take the day off and go seek some women to test out your ideas…
