Aphrodisiac Alert: A Valentines Day Cooking Class & Dinner

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Looking to impress your sweetheart? Join us for an evening of cooking, fun & food! Chef and award-winning cookbook author, Didi Emmons will lead this hands on cooking class where will create a 3 course meal working with foods which are purportedly known to be aphrodisiacs. Some are proven to raise hormones like testosterone.  We can’t promise instant success, but with Didi leading us, exploring how foods and herbs stimulate certain hormones, will make for an eventful, social and delicious evening.  

For instance, spices like cinnamon and cardamom are warming, improve circulation and are mildly stimulating.  Goji berries are good for anxiety and a multitude of other symptoms.  Drinking a glass of pomegranate juice a day has been proven to increase testosterone.  Research suggests that our beloved chocolate, well known for its aphrodisiac properties, are limited if any, and any effects are probably psychological, not physiological.  Still, there are many foods that do change our chemistry..... Please note that meal includes champagne and wine.  Limited to 6 couples.


  • Arugula and Basil Salad with Spiced Goat Cheese, Figs, and Pomegranate Seeds
  • Wild Salmon with Pineapple Avocado Salsa
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Smashed Local Potatoes
  • Rolled Vanilla Cake, Rose Whipped Cream, Goji Berry and Raspberry Sauce


Please note that most classes include options for vegetarians and vegans. For more information about what we’ll be cooking, contact Nicole.
