I don’t think Valentine’s dessert should be heavy and elaborated.
I do think Valentine’s dessert should be delightful… and aphrodisiac, of course!
Our leading actress, today, is Mrs Honey.
Honeymoon is where lovers begin their love life.
Most cultures use her as main restorative for health and for a healthy love life.
Attila died because of a heart attack: on his wedding day he drank a fatal quantity of hydromel to prepare himself for the coming, very intense, first night (poor thing!).
Cleopatra (the most aphrodisiac woman in history!) used to take care of her wonderful skin with a very natural moisturizing cream: ground almonds mixed to honey.
Yes madams and messieurs, this is all Isabel Allende taught me about honey (I’m in the Afrodita project at the moment). And this is how it conquered me enough to make me opt for this wonderful Valentine’s dessert! —Claudia | Gourmet Project

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3-4 kiwi
  1. Dilute the cornstarch in the cup of water.
  2. Mix it together with all the other ingredients (not the kiwi!) and bake in a bain-marie (place a saucepan with a cup of water on the heat and another one with ingredients on top of it – medium heat) for about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile peel and slice kiwi.
  4. Serve the sauce hot (better if you have a mini fondue set so you can keep it warm for longer).
  5. Dip kiwi slices in the sauce and savor it on a cold February night!
