A trip to the market
It had been a good day, they had driven to the delightful local food market in the Austin Healey with the roof down and he had remarked how the sun shone through her golden air as it floated in the wind. They had planned the menu for tonight around the kitchen table seducing each other after breakfast. If this table could talk it would be X rated! Roqué mused.
The evening would start with Sex on the Beach. Images of shimmering golden sand, sail boats and bronzed bodies in Beach Café bikinis fluttered through their minds. http://beachcafe.com/
This is a perfect blend of Vodka, schnapps, pineapple juice and crème de cassis. These he would mix then pour over crushed ice into a highball glass packed into a hollowed out pineapple. He plunged a fat pink straw into the cocktail, kissed the end and handed it to Wanda. She loved to suck this delicious and so naughty glass of decadence. http://lovehoney.co.uk/ Wandas special costume came from Lovehoney
As for foreplay, he would scoop out the flesh of the avocado fresh from the market, wrap it gently in lime juice and zest and that so, so sexy aromatic coriander, add some finely chopped red chilli for a bit of heat and a dollop of crème fraises. A plethora of taste and flavour from the market.
This would be served with sparkling pink rosé – better known as blush, poured into opalescent coupe champagne glasses.
Roqué was in his sawn off jeans and a yellow tea shirt inscribed with Love life, Love Food, Love me. It clung to him seductively. He turned around to see Wanda fresh from the shower framed in sunlight as her shadow moved across the wall. Roqué turned and putting down his bowl of mousse he was whipping with a passion, passed Wanda and kissed her shadow on the wall.
The main event was to be the finest rump steak from the local Black Devon herd purchased from their chum the excellent butcher Ben Dover forth generation of local farmers and purveyors of the finest beef. Ben kissed Wanda, eyeing Roqué in some hope of gaining his permission. ‘
“This is well hung” Ben told them pointing at the steaks. “Just as I like it” Wanda added with a twinkle in her eyes.
The steak would be served medium rare in just its own juices, with courgettes sautéed in butter, garlic and white wine and finished with warm seedless grape halves. Roqué would peel the thin red skin off a couple of tomatoes and wind the strips to form red roses to romance the dinner plate. Chunks of freshly baked bread spread with his spectacular mustard butter would complete the seduction. A glass of aged, oaked Rioja would cast shards of purple and red in the candle light. Wanda you are in for a treat tonight…
