Consuming Passion

Posted February 11, 2005
Here's a reason to learn to cook: certain foods enhance libido. That's why gastronomy expert Amy Reiley just started the Aphrodisiac of the Month club. Each month, subscribers receive a package filled with edibles that encourage intimacy. The Nectar of Aphrodite delivery comes in a beaded velvet lingerie pouch that includes a recipe card, bee butter, honey comb, jars of different honeys, and two honey sticks (to be used as paint brushes, says Reiley). The Red Hot Chili Pepper package is housed in a little fire bucket and contains dried chilies, New Mexican rubs, salsas, and red feathers. Future months highlight the sensual effects of coffee, ginger, vanilla, almonds, and cherries. For $39.95 a month, available in three-, six-, or 12-month subscriptions, you won't go hungry.
