Praise for Afrodita:
“Like a slow, seductive lover, Allende teases, tempts and titillates with mesmerizing stories and legends about gluttony—sexual and otherwise.”—The Washington Post
“Thankfully, in this sophisticated defense of pleasure, novelist Allende puts the joy back into eating and loving with all the panache that marks the best of her fiction. Though passionate about her subject, she remains consistently whimsical with this mix of anecdotes, recipes and advice designed to enhance any romantic encounter. As always, her secret weapon is honesty.”—Publishers Weekly
“Allende’s book is not a primer for beginning lovers or novice cooks. Rather, it is deliciously deliberate provocation for those looking to refresh long-ago acquired and lustily honed skills.”—USA Today
“Afrodita explores the enduring and passionate bond between the culinary and the carnal—and concocts a heady stew of amour and cuisine.”—People
