Our Full Moon Date Night Series allows us the opportunity for the full moon to tempt fate for the evening. We like to envision this class as when the longing for romance becomes one with the lust for good food. Say farewell to boring dates, and allow your taste buds to seek stimulation in new discoveries… especially setting free those taste buds that connect to the more exotic and erotic parts of the brain. Electrifying yet softening flavor sensations, to the more sultry and spicy, we’re riding through wild tunnels of experiences … This experience is sure to bring you and your date to a new dimension of closeness, unlocking new experiences together and letting each other in on parts of themselves you’ve never seen before and hopefully heightening your amorous nature. We’ll be providing cooking tips for cooking as a couple, making the process run more smoothly and enjoyable for you to take with you as you walk out into night. We’ll discover if aphrodisiacs really do exist, increasing sex drive and fertility, like the ancients and Sting purport. We’re letting you in on the truth that real food equals real sex, strengthening the libido. Too bad this class isn’t taking place in the Viagra Triangle, Chicago, or we’d challenge the entire population of Viagra users to take these flavor sensations for a spin. Get out of our dreams and into our center! Among the foods we will be tempting to pull out our yearnings for more of we will be experiencing the power of the anise seed, basil, pistachio, rocket, fennel, snails, almond, avocado, chocolate, figs, nutmeg, ginger, honey, nutmeg, pineapple, raspberry, vanilla, and red wine.
