At a tiny restaurant* in Jasper, Alberta, Canada, I had a food orgasm. We started with a beef and wasabi salad, which had a really fabulous soy peanut dressing. Then my main course was halibut fillet served over sweet potatoes mashed with Cinnamon, covered in a curry yogurt sauce, with fresh steamed vegetables on the side. Oh, and some very good white wine.

About halfway through the main course (which I was enjoying immensely) I started to feel very warm, almost as if I were running a low fever. It's the curry, I know you'll say. But it was so much more. It was very sexual, and I ... well, let's just say I enjoyed the meal a lot and got my boyfriend back to our hotel room as fast as possible. And then we ate there again the next night.

As for cause, I don't think it was the fish or the spices or anything that specific. I think food just really can be that good sometimes.

The whole thing reminded me of that scene in Like Water for Chocolate where she makes the rose petal sauce. Highly recommended.

*If you're ever in Jasper, look for the Warden's Not Here restaurant in Folding Mountain Village, about 4km outside the east gate of Jasper National Park. You won't regret it.
