Avocado
hass avocado, watercress, piquillo peppers, toasted sunflower seeds and chevre, tossed in aged balsamic and olive oil

Possess high volumes of vitamin B6 which is said to 
increase male hormone production.
Oysters
fresh oysters on the half shell with a meyer lemon foam

This is one of the most widely known aphrodisiac foods. They are high in zinc, which helps in the increase of sexual drive.
Asparagus
grilled organic asparagus, with a toasted chili and saffron aioli

This vegetable is said to boost the production of histamine, 
a crucial pleasure hormone necessary in both males and females.
Basil
basil and potato bisque topped with crispy serrano ham
and crème fraiche
Basil’s sweet aroma is said to not only have a positive effect 
on mind and body, but an aphrodisiac effect, too.
Figs
“drunken” figs stuffed with valdeon blue cheese
and rolled in toasted marcona
Figs date back as far as biblical times and have been held 
in esteem as the fruit of love and fertility for centuries.

Intermezzo
Banana
and crème fraiche sobert

Bananas contain chelating minerals and the bromelain enzyme, said to enhance the male libido. A banana left on a doorstep indicates that a marriage is about to take place.

Almonds
almond crusted diver scallop with a bacon cauliflower hash

and almond horchata
Poets have often described the aroma from almonds as arousing for females. Almonds are also a popular symbol for fertility.
Honey
honey cured duck confit on a bartlett pear chip
topped with a sour cherry compote
This sweet-tasting, natural product is high in boron – 
a mineral associated with the use of estrogen in the female body.
Garlic
grilled filet medallions, with a garlic and porcini jus
and a roasted garlic mousse
While garlic may smell bad, it’s loaded with an ingredient
 said to increase blood flow around the body.
Chocolate
chocolate trio ~ bête noir, burnt orange chocolate mousse, chocolate hazelnut gelato
Pure chocolate increases the same hormone (dopamine) associated with euphoria.
