Thats the sizzle from Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi and head judge Tom Colicchio, who agree that food is incredibly sexy.
Colicchio a renowned chef himself says the act of cooking is very sensual and calls it the ultimate foreplay.
He explains, Cooking is the best way to woo someone. If I wanted to make something sexy for my wife Id start with oysters and caviar.
Lakshmi agrees on the eroticism of cooking, but believes the actual food is the main sexpot in the equation.
She says, Food is so sexy! Its sensual and incorporates all of the senses. The smell, the feeling of the food when its in your mouth its all very seductive.
If Lakshmi were to cook up a hot meal for a hot man shed immediately go for foods that can be eaten with the hand, such as steamy artichokes with tasty dipping sauces.
Top Chef: New York premieres Wednesday (Nov. 12) on Bravo.
