The New Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins & Randall Lockridge

Forget about Spanish fly and rhino horns. How about orange blossom panna cotta; rabbit in mustard sauce à la Colette; or strawberry avocado salad? The tenth anniversary edition of Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook takes you on an aphrodisiac journey of more than 135 sexy dishes ranging from traditional stimulants, such as oysters, chiles or artichokes, to lesser-known mood boosters such as black beans, basil and pine nuts. It’s a delicious book for the kitchen, the coffee table and, of course, the bedroom.
