From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Homer wrote of the Greek goddess: "Aphrodite overcomes all mortal men and immortal gods with desire."
4-6 endive (the doctrine of resemblances)
Wash and prepare the endive leaves and arrange on a serving platter. Cut at least one radish into slices, leaving two others to place on the plate. Finely dice the onion, adding a few sprigs of thyme. Arrange the sliced radishes and onion mixture over the endive leaves. Sprinkle with slivered almonds. In a bowl, whisk together the honey and very finely diced green onions so that they weep a bit. Drizzle over the endive. Serve. Sheikh Nefrazi, in "The Perfumed Garden" suggests a nightcap of honey and almonds for those going to bed for purposes other than sleep. He also recommends a broth made up of honey and onion juice.
