According to Sarsa Kitchen+Bar's owner and chef JP Anglo, it's easier to have one thing lead to another if you begin with a sensually sumptuous meal. The right moves could mean a sizzling time in the bedroom. Here, the Ilonggo chef correlates food to great sex, giving tips on how to score some pogi points with the right ingredients and great technique.
Use food to score.
For me, lutuan mo lang and everything will follow. Cook your best and it will lead to the bedroom. Kapag nagluluto ka sa bahay, home court mo yan. Everything is under one roof: may kusina, couch, kama. So pwede kayo kumain, pwede kayo mag-chill, pwede kayo magpahinga. It starts in the kitchen. And if you do well, [you] will end up in the living room or somewhere else.
Trust in your talent to get the girls—but don't try too hard.
When you try too hard, it actually works against you. These days, I cook at the beach because I surf a lot. When you surf, ang mga siga sa tubig are the locals and the pro surfers. They get all the girls—the chicks in T-back bikinis. Eh ako, hindi naman magaling mag-surf. So I wait in the sidelines and just think, "Tikman niyo muna ang pagkain ko; baka magbago ang isip niyo."
Cooking together may lead to MOMOL.
Pero para sa akin, hindi instant yan. Yun ang mentality ng ibang kaibigan natin na boys dyan. Akala nila, agad-agad. Unless you're Brad Pitt, that won't happen. Slow cooking yan, eh. I would recommend cooking beef stew together. It uses red wine, so while you are cooking, you can start on the wine. Tumatawa kayo, you have a conversation, and before you know it, may connection na kayo. You will bond and that will hopefully lead to making out.
Girls with big appetites are a turn-on.
Kusinero ako, yan ang hanapbuhay ko. I once dated a model. Maganda, matalino. I bring her to Sarsa, and she tells me that she is a Pescatarian, meaning she only eats fish and vegetables. Eh puro pork ang niluluto ko. So, needless to say, there was no second date.
Aphrodisiacs are real.
It's about conditioning the mind. Oysters have this silky smooth texture, reflective of our body organs, or to be direct about it, the vagina. It is salty, although there are sweet oysters from France. Caviar is the same in texture and taste. A banana [is an aphrodisiac, too.] When a girl eats a banana, she becomes playful.
The best place to do it in the kitchen is on solid tops.
Use a firm countertop—or look for a table with strong legs. A wooden table will give you that earthy feel while marble and granite give a feeling of luxury.
Alcohol releases inhibitions.
As human beings, we are somehow defensive; we put up a wall. Alcohol can break down barriers, even underwear. I would recommend cocktails because you get to appreciate different flavors. Even a good scotch has all those flavors and notes, if you know how to drink it.
Eating away a broken heart doesn't only feel good; it’s necessary. But a dadbod may be inevitable.
You want to feel good eh, so may weight gain yan. Maybe go for a good steak, without carbs. There are those that go for P500 to P600. But the really good ones, mga isang libo. Go for it, anyway. Kailangan ng heart mo yan.
Cooking techniques are great at making your woman fall for you.
Maraming klase ng babae. Yung hard-to-get, nilalaga talaga yan para lumambot. Yung easy-to-get, prituhin mo lang, malutong na. May feisty: ihawin mo para mausukan sila. Meron din mabait; you steam them gently, parang yung balat ng pritchon. Meron naman na kailangan dumaan sa tatlong proseso para magkagusto sa iyo.
Promdi chefs rock in the love department.
I am Ilonggo and I am proud to be from Bacolod. Plus factor din sa lalaki ang marunong magluto kasi it shows you can provide and nurture; that you can take care of your partner. I think a good mantra [to live by] would be, "Magluto, Magdasal, at Magmahal."
