50 Pickup Lines for Scoring a Foodie

Sausage and potatoes
Food Diary (February 13, 2012)
Breakfast: Rolled oats with banana, coconut, sunflower seeds and flax seeds
Lunch: Sausage and potatoes
Dinner: Carrot salad, sourdough with hummus

Yesterday perhaps I was a bit harsh when I said "with much hesitation I would put chocolate spekkoek in the latter category” referring to cakes which look great but fall slightly short in the taste department. Today I had a slice of chocolate spekkoek which was leftover from yesterday. I had it cold, and it actually tasted more delicious today. Maybe my mood was different, or it does taste better the next day. In any case, chocolate spekkoek is delicious.

ecosalon has compiled a list of fifty pickup lines for scoring a foodie. You decide whether or not they are likely to work.
1.      You’re as intoxicating as a home distilled liquor.
2.      You looking at me is making me turn as red as that roasted beet salad.
3.      Can I sprinkle some sea salt on your salad?
4.      I can last as long as a Le Creuset.
5.      This first date is going so well. Should we drop everything and buy a food truck together?
6.      How hot does your gas oven get?
7.      Even my new stainless steel cookware set isn’t as slick as you.
8.      If you shave your legs as well as that fennel, I can’t wait to touch them.
9.      If this were an artisan meat market, I would take you home for dinner.
10.  I’d turn vegan for you.
11.  You’re my missing ingredient.
12.  I’m local, all natural, homemade and certified organic: wanna taste?
13.  Your skin is smoother than the finest panna cotta.
14.  Do you prefer French Press or Bialetti for your morning coffee?
15.  Have you ever tried bone luging?
16.  If I was a chalkboard, would you write the daily special on me?
17.  You’re spicier than sriracha.
18.  I think we’d grow a great organic garden together.
19.  Can I serve you a frittata made with local ducks eggs in bed tomorrow morning?
20.  Your eyes are as effervescent as this sparkling water.
21.  How about we skip the hors d’oeuvres and head straight for the digestif?
22.  Have you ever tried hand-pulled, salted cardamom toffee? Why don’t we head back to my place and I’ll whip you up a batch.
23.  You’re as complete as quinoa.
24.  If you were a seed, I’d plant an entire community garden of you.
25.  You’re so cute I could bottle you up in a mason jar.
26.  Need a cooking partner? Because I am amazing in the kitchen.
27.  I studied at a culinary school in France and know all the secrets to joie de vivre.
28.  I just scored a rare sampling of imported olive oils; wanna come back to my place for a tasting?
29.  Dinner is on me. I know the chef.
30.  You make my soufflé rise; can I buy you a drink?
31.  If I wrote a cookbook, you’d be the featured recipe.
32.  Staring at you is better than looking at food porn.
33.  Do you like reading? I’ve heard Omnivore’s Dilemma is the perfect bedtime story.
34.  Let’s pretend you’re a farm and I’ll be the table.
35.  Do you make your own kombucha? Because those probiotics are doing your body good.
36.  When it comes to me, you’ve got free range.
37.  If I threw you a dinner party, I’d use my good linen.
38.  What are you doing this fall? How about we take advantage of the harvest season?
39.  If you were a dessert, I would drizzle a balsamic reduction all over you.
40.  You know, I cook best in the morning.
41.  How about we go back to my place and make something to write about on my food blog?
42.  If you were going to open a restaurant, what would you call it? Mine would be Devour.
43.  Once the rainy seasons comes, we should forage together.
44.  Do you need someone to help pitch your tent at farmers market?
45.  God put as much work into you as a fine piece of artisan cheese.
46.  I’m new in town, where’s the best place to get late night paté?
47.  You & Me. Sounds like a great idea, or maybe the name of the next hot restaurant. You in?
48.  You’re so hot, you could make creme brulée with just your looks.
49.  This city has [insert number] of microbrews, but only this one has the blonde I want.
50.  I would love to make you part of this season’s bounty.

  1. I have never tried chocolate spekkoek but it look tasty! However I love anything with chocolate! Also I love your favorite photo pic, it reminds me of summer!

  2. hhahahaha these pickup lines are hilarious!!! :) and your chocolate cake looks schmancy!

  3. LOL... I love all these funny pickup lines! I missed your chocolate spekkoek recipe - I will check it out after this to see what you are talking about. ;-)

  4. Hahaha funny! Re cake, I think some things taste better the next day, maybe that's the case of the good looking cake?

    1. I think it was definitely the case with this good looking cake:)

  5. Eek, I'm so glad I'm not a foodie. :D
    Yeah, even with the spiced layer cakes, they taste better after a day or two or three ... if they last that long. The flavors develop and you then get the true yumminess of the cake. We're always told to not eat it on the same day it's made .... as though we can stand it.

    1. The difference in taste was quite noticable, I am glad there were leftovers (maybe there would have been no leftovers if the cake was more delicious to start with!).

  6. I'm don't think that any of these lines would work on me:) I love food, but perhaps not in a flirty way.

  7. Oh dear, those lines are not really that come hither. I would look at someone really oddly if they said those to me!

    1. Funny for sure, effective - we don't know

  9. Hi there!
    First time on your lovely blog and I like it here. =)
    The pick up lines r hilarious! lol
    chocolate speckkoek is new to me, I ll check it out.
    thx for sharing! =)

  10. My favorite aunt had what she called the "three day cake rule"--meaning, it was much better three days after it was baked. We didn't always follow that rule.

    Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to reading your blog.


  11. Happy to learn your cake tasted better the following day. It happens to me all the time and I prefer that than the other way round (there is nothing more depressing than a cake that is spoilt in 24 hours; many yeast cakes behave this way).
    The pickup lines are ridiculous or weird... I cannot imagine any of them would actually work.

    1. I've never made yeast cake - will definitely keep in mind that they can spoil in 24 hours.
      I thought the pickup lines were weird and ineffective too. But it could work with some people, and for such persons you probably don't need any pickup line:)

  12. By the way, I have just checked and the Italian "speck" comes from Tyrol, which is a region close to Austria and the word speck is a German word for bacon, too (although in Italy speck is only this particular regional product, otherwise it's lardo). Since German and Danish languages are related, it explains why the Dutch call bacon the same way... Thanks to your chocolate cake I learnt a lot of interesting things :-)

    1. Very interesting, thank you for checking. Now I know what speck is when I see it in Germany. I certainly won't be expecting a cake:)

  13. Hi three cookies, fantastic 50 pick up lines for scoring a foodie.. great sharing ha ha. great cake too. Happy valentine's day to you.
