Bio

A passionate aphrodisiac advocate, Amy Reiley is one of the foremost-educated women in food and wine. In August 2004, she became the second American to earn the title Master of Gastronomy awarded by France’s culinary temple, Le Cordon Bleu. While at Cordon Bleu, Amy rose to notoriety for her work in culinary aphrodisiacs. In 2006, Amy released her first book, Fork Me, Spoon Me: the sensual cookbook, cementing her role as America’s leading aphrodisiac food authority. Filling a niche in the cookbook market, demand resulted in the book’s second edition less than two years later. A 4th generation publisher, Amy runs Life of Reiley a boutique cookbook & web publishing co. She's editorial director of http://www.eatsomethingsexy.com and has a newsletter Amy Reiley’s Aphrodisiac of the Month. Beyond aphrodisiacs, Amy is internationally recognized as a wine journalist. She was even singled out as one of the five best female wine professionals in the world of the year by France’s Wine Women Awards. She's written on wine for publications including Variety; Las Vegas Magazine; Gayot.com; Daily Candy; Sunset and GalTime. As the creator of Amy Reiley's Pocket Vineyard in 1999, Amy quickly established her place in this male dominated industry by introducing the world to the first comprehensive wine program for PDA’s. In 2001 she launched the companion program, Amy Reiley’s Pocket Gourmet, lauded by Newsweek as the first of its kind. Both the Pocket Vineyard and Pocket Gourmet were named two of Worth Magazine’s “must have” PDA programs in 2002. Amy’s second book, Chile Aphrodisia by Rio Nuevo press, was released in June 2006. In addition to promoting both books, Amy speaks and consults on various food and wine topics. In June 2010 she authored her third book, The Love Diet, co-authored by Chef Juan-Carlos Cruz.
