"Risen from the foam,
Deceptive one, they call her,
Heavenly, her smile,
Divine, her laughter,
Beautiful, she is,
Golden, she is,
Wife to Hephaestus,
Lover to Ares,
Cruel, she can be,
Loving, she can be,
She is Aphrodite, Lady of Doves"
-Lady of Doves by Victoria W.
The word "Aphrodisiac" comes, of course, from the word Aphrodite—the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Aphrodisiacs as a food group are believed to have a magical, sensual quality that increases libido and are often called, "love drugs." This Valentine's Day, rather than spending $300 at a fancy restaurant, learn how to make your own 3-course meal all from ingredients designed to improve your love life. Bring your lover, bring your best friend, bring your Tinder date! This class is designed to be enjoyed by those in a relationship as well as those still looking and those independent creatures that wish to make romance their own.
For this class TRILUNA is joined by Chef Keshia Hay of Sip n' Bite Cocktail as we work our way through a common set of aphrodisiacs and create our very own candle lit dinner. You'll learn everything from the history of the food, to knife skills, to plating. This Valentine's Day take it to the next level and leave with knowledge that will last a lifetime. We can't wait to see you there!
