How to get a guy in bed
One of our many followers/disciples has raised the question of ‘what dish to cook to get a guy in bed?’ so as I seemingly have more knowledge in this area Graeme has flung the question over to me.
Now I’m not saying I’ve had first hand knowledge of the gathering of men/penis’ into my bed but as a man of the world I’ve picked up a thing or two along the way.
Firstly I’d like to congratulate this young lady (I use this word loosely) for being so proactive in the bedroom department, but alas I feel the man you are trying to woo is already lost.
Which brings me to the second point and the answer to your question, the best dish to get a man into the bedroom is in its self a trick question because unlike you women out there food has no bearing on weather we want to sleep (also used loosely) with you. A simple hello is all we need to get the juices flowing and if you really must include food into the equation then simply make a Hansel like trial of corn chips from the front door to your bed or washing machine what ever your sexual preference is, and then BAM he’s yours.
So as I formally stated if you are needing to coax a man into the bed room then he simply isn’t good enough and the right one for you, OR you’re a freaky stalker who looks like a troll and have picked up signals which where definitely not there.
But I do like the idea of cooking for a man because you want to spoil him and show him that there are still woman willing to rock the kitchen and the bedroom and maybe even the garden if you have high walls (if you know what I mean) so I have given you a few recipes sure to excite any man or woman, if the food isn’t working then apply shit loads of alcohol and magic will happen.
The method behind the madness of the four dishes is this, if you put all your eggs in the one basket people will think you’re a crazy old Amish person who still carries eggs in a basket! But if you have a few simply put together dishes it will fill the entire evening with smells, conversation and wonderment then if your really shit in the sack later it won’t matter.

To make the polenta whisk the polenta into the strained milk stock and simmer for 15 minutes stirring frequently, then leave on very low heat for further 15 to cook out the graininess, then add butter and oil, season and serve.

Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a metal bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (bain maree)
In another bowl crack the eggs and give a quick whisk.

Either rub the flour, sugar and butter together carefully with finger tips or place in a mixer to breadcrumb consistency.

“Remember this, sex is what gets people together but food is want keeps them together” I feel this is one of my finest quotes to date.
