Love is in the food! Get ready for an eventful, social and delicious evening. In this special hands-on Valentine's cooking class with chef and award-winning cookbook author Didi Emmons, students will create a 3-course meal integrating foods purportedly known to be aphrodisiacs, including some proven to raise hormones like testosterone. We can't promise instant success, but will explore how foods and herbs stimulate certain hormones. For instance, spices like cinnamon and cardamom are warming, improve circulation and are mildly stimulating. Goji berries are an antidote for anxiety and a multitude of other symptoms. Research suggests chocolate, well known for its aphrodisiac properties, is actually limited, and any effects are probably psychological, not physiological. So much for that box of candy you were thinking of giving… Please note, this dinner includes champagne and wine.
