Paperback ✓ Afrodita MOBI ↠

Isabel Allende conosce il gusto lieve e giocoso della vita La troviamo alle prese con il mondo della cucina tempio del piacere dei sensi e anticamera del piacere dei piaceri In un invito alla gioia dietro il grembiule un gioco per nutrirsi e inebriarsi senza prendersi troppo sul serio Dalla salsa corallina alle pere ubriache dall'habanera di gamberi all'insalata delle odalische dalla zuppa scacciapensieri alle ciliegie civettuole un patrimonio di ricette piccanti e spiritose condite con le spezie dell'ironia Dopo aver fatto un paio di giri completi nel mondo degli afrodisiaci scopro che l'unica cosa che davvero mi eccita è l'a E allora dedico ueste divagazioni erotiche agli amanti che giocano e perché no anche agli uomini spaventati e alle donne malinconiche Mi pento delle diete dei piatti prelibati rifiutati per vanità come mi rammarico di tutte le occasioni di fare l'a che ho lasciato correre Non posso separare l'erotismo dal cibo e non vedo nessun buon motivo per farlo; al contrario ho intenzione di continuare a godere di entrambi fino a uando le forze e il buon u me lo consentiranno Da ui nasce l'idea di uesto libro un viaggio senza carta geografica attraverso le regioni della memoria sensuale là dove i confini tra l'a e l'appetito a volte sono talmente labili da confondersi completamente Afrodita
