"Cooking something special can be as seductive as eating it. Of course, cooking while entertaining takes a degree of confidence that, in itself, can impress as much as fancy ingredients. To my mind, seduction meals involve conversation, gazing, tasting, touch, and movement. Cooking and serving a meal allows ample time for all five. The only seduction meal that will ever matter to me was making homemade thin crust pizza on an outdoor grill at sunset on the deck of my country house. I made two with separate toppings; mozzarella with olives and fresh basil and a white pizza with chopped clams and garlic. A crisp Italian white wine got the conversation flowing and helped pull everything together. Mission accomplished!"
