In fact, truffles are so sensual that even thin shavings on a risotto or buttery pasta can set the mood and fire up some real passion.

An authority on the edible fungus known as “truffles”, Susan Alexander has been sharing her knowledge via her informative web blog. Besides posting simple yet flavorful recipes, she just recently published her answer to whether truffles are an aphrodisiac or not.
Some people look at truffles and understand the reasons why they’re dubbed the “diamonds of the gourmet world,” while others claim they’re nothing but overhyped, fancy mushrooms. As the developer of the largest truffle orchard in America, Susan Alexander states there’s more to them than that odd shape and warty skin, “They definitely have aphrodisiac properties,” she explains. “In fact, truffles are so sensual that even thin shavings on a risotto or buttery pasta can set the mood and fire up some real passion.”
Aptly entitled, “Romancing the Kitchen: Truffles as Aphrodisiac,” the blog post essentially expounds on three factors from which truffles derive their aphrodisiac status. First there’s rarity, which easily ranks truffles among the most elusive goods of the culinary world. Second is their scent, which is believed to resemble male pheromones and stimulate the skin. Lastly with high levels of protein, they help keep up the much needed stamina for those romantic nights out.
“Because of these qualities, truffles can stimulate romance and help set the mood in people to find their life partners” says Alexander. “I know it’s a big statement, but the world’s greatest leaders and writers can’t be wrong.”
Alexander is referring to historical figures and writers like Napoleon Bonaparte, who ate truffles to boost his masculinity, while Madame de Pompadour fed truffles to Louis XV to restore his virility, and famous food writer Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin who once observed how truffles “awaken lustful and erotic memories.”
“Most people are aware that a majority of what we eat has a direct impact on our brain chemistry, energy levels, and hormones” she explains, “but not everyone knows about how something like a truffle can stimulate and give us a much sexier purpose.”
Alexander continues by saying that “truffles awaken our sensual senses when eaten, and that’s the first step needed to find one’s true love.”
Susan Alexander’s blog is full of easy to read information about the elusive and exotic truffle.
While truffles are among the most highly sought-after ingredients in the culinary world, their appeal proves to be more popular than their rarity. “They have that sensual scent as well as nutritional value, which makes the urge to add them to practically any dish almost always undeniable” says Alexander.
