Jessica attends a cooking class hosted by famous Chef Adriano. Her expectations are low. Instead she finds something quite different.
“…in spite of his shameless provocation, he did it all with a certain flair – a tongue-in-cheek innocence and playful wink that spoon-fed the senses, lured sex back into the kitchen and single-handedly turned the apron and paring knife into cutting-edge foreplay”.
This was entertaining as a short story and had a nice build up of sexual tension between the two main characters. This made for an interesting, sexy culinary experience as a reader.
“…random ingredients so routinely overlooked now tickled the senses with possibility, given life and context against a backdrop of raw sexuality”.
I liked his style of writing and although, I would have liked a little more details and development at times, I reminded myself that this was a short story. Tease, tease.
