Top 10 Romantic and Sexy Cookbooks

Consider the Oyster by M.F.K. Fisher, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Sexy Cookbooks

Consider the Oyster
by M.F.K. Fisher

The "poet of the appetites," as John Updike called her, writes about food so beautifully and sexily, we had a hard time picking our favorite book. Her tiny volume Consider the Oyster is a gorgeous homage to the "strange cold succulence" of these tasty creatures — and you don't even have to be an oyster aficionado to enjoy her luscious prose. Some recipes are included such as oyster loaf.
