Throughout history and in every culture it was considered an art to be versed in the knowledge of brewery. Recipes for brewing spirits, romantic elixirs and remedies of the heart and libido were passed down through the generations. Bewitch your lover this Halloween with a supper that is dangerously sexy, my ‘Mesmerizing Marsala’ recipe will help you cast the perfect spell for erotica.
Marsala wine is the base of this herbaceous creamy mushroom sauce that is served over lightly breaded chicken breast. I paired it with jasmine rice as an elegant accompaniment. The mushrooms make this dish magical. Some mushrooms are poisonous and hallucinogenic, like the kind eaten by Alice in Wonderland, but all of them are symbolic of an erect penis. When considering the mushroom’s aphrodisiacal qualities, understand that the most potent erogenous zone is the mind. The visual stimulation of this phallic fungus psychologically affects sexual arousal. Further, the Doctrine of Signatures teaches that if plants in some way resemble various parts of the body it can be used to “treat” that body part. Let your eyes feast on this time lapse video to further understand.
Mushrooms are a favorite in erotic cooking. Mesmerize your lover with a dead sexy supper that will charm his pants off.
