This Valentine’s Day, International Relationship Expert Laura Bilotta has developed a romantic, multi-sensorial activity for couples designed to heighten their senses.
Move over wine and chocolate, Laura’s date night activity is centered around her favourite natural aphrodisiac, cheese.
Laura perfectly pairs seven cheeses with seven unique sensorial elements from ASMR, to mists, a caress and more during a blind tasting intended to connect couples, sensually and playfully.
Inspired by her favourite cheese, Tickler Cheddar, she calls this activity Tickler Your Senses and recommends your partner close their eyes, or even better, don a blindfold to enhance the other senses.
Here’s a snapshot of the activity:
STEP ONE: Feed your partner a slice of Tickler and embrace the name of this extra mature cheddar by following it up with a soft tickle across your partner’s arm and neck.
STEP TWO: Spread some Taste Hawaii pineapple and almond cream cheese on a cracker to transport your partner to the sun drenched beaches of Hawaii. Follow this up with a misting of salt-water spray on their neck and start dreaming of your next vacation together.
STEP THREE: Drizzle honey over some warmed Castello Brie, spread on a cracker and feed to your partner. While they revel in the sweet and slightly spicy taste, add some additional honey to their bottom lip and surprise them by taking a taste yourself.
STEP FOUR: Encourage your partner to nibble on some Vintage Gouda while you playfully nibble on their ear, neck or shoulder
STEP FIVE: Add a slice of Velvet Blue cheese to an apple slice, then top with fig jam, wrap in prosciutto and while your partner indulges in this taste sensation, guide their hand across your velvety skin with a soft whisper in their ear.
STEP SIX: Cube some crunchy Aged Havarti and complement it with a gentle head massage as they experience the sound, smell, creamy taste and your soft touch.
STEP SEVEN: Gently crack a walnut for your partner to hear, then add it to the top of a slice of Traditional Danish Blue cheese with a pear slice for a biting and intense finish.
Let your senses be your guide and after sampling Laura’s favourite seven cheeses by Castello, try another round with different cheese types. Mozzarella or Mascarpone anyone?
