Chef Mallory Staley from 1789 joined us on Saturday on Capital Cooking's Setting the Mood with Food episode to make Chocolate Cinnamon Waffles with caramelized banana’s and rum ice cream.
We paired this dish with a Meritage wine from Vinbev.com.
Bananas are known to be aphrodisiacs, due not only to the shape, but also the creamy, lush texture. Some studies show its enzyme bromelain enhances male performance.
Chocolate contains both a sedative which relaxes and lowers inhibitions and a stimulant to increase activity and the desire for physical contact. It was actually banned from some monasteries centuries ago.
More coming soon including our Avocado Salad with Colman's Mustard, and my Diep 9 Death by Chocolate Cocktail...
