Intercourses: Cooking with Aphrodisiacs

February 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Sold out!  We’ll be back next year for this one!

Most scientists believe that there is a lot of power in the food we consume. Some even suggest that the food we consume can have interesting affects on the body. Hot Chilies can make you sweat, Szechuan Peppercorns can make your mouth go numb, and Oysters can make you…aroused? Foods that are known for increasing libido are often called aphrodisiacs. While this is largely regarded as a placebo effect in the medical community, there’s nothing wrong with getting in the kitchen to make some everyday aphrodisiac ingredients into some sexy dishes! This class is perfect for couples or anyone who loves good food with a fun spin.  Menu includes delicious dishes such as: French toast in Honey Pecan Sauce with Honey Butter, Bacon and Parmesan Cheese Oysters, Grape Bruschetta with Whipped Ricotta, Strawberry Avocado Salad with Citrus Dressing, Black Bean and Squash Chili, Pasta with Asparagus, Chicken and Lemon Stilton, Artichoke Rosemary Pizza with Feta and Pine Nuts, Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles, and Champagne Laced with fresh Raspberries. Even if you don’t buy into the fun effects food can have on your body, this food is delicious enough to devour anyway! Grab any partner, and come enjoy a fun, lighthearted evening with us!  Tickets are sold as a 1-person ticket.

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are asking all students to wear a mask to class. We will be taking temperatures at the door, as well as providing hand sanitizer upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  All food goes home in a box at this time so that masks need not be removed.  You will get a portion of each dish!

Please indicate the age of your child (children) in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 7 days in advance to receive a full refund for this class.  There will be a processing fee to cancel your ticket per person no matter when you cancel. You can cancel by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to cancel at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund for any reason (even Covid related).  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else if you are not able to come but we cannot forward them to another class.

If you have a cardboard gift card with a 3-digit number and want to redeem it for this class, you must call or email to reserve your class spot prior to the class selling out.  If you reserve your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card. If your gift card has a 16-digit code, you can cash it in online when you purchase your ticket.
