Seduction Rolls

This recipe is from a wonderful book by Isabel Allende, Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses, and is intended as foreplay to a more substantial meal… It uses Pisco, the national drink of both Allende’s birthplace Peru and her native Chile.

  • 100g (4 oz) cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • ½ tsp ground pimiento or paprika
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 thin slices ham or turkey
  • 1 tbsp pisco
  1. Combine the cheese, butter, cream, pimiento or paprika, lemon juice, pisco, lemon juice, salt, pepper and pisco in a bowl and mix well. Spread on the meat and roll into tubes. Cover with foil if you want to save them in the fridge until later. Serve sliced into inch-long logs.
