Venus in the Kitchen by Norman Douglas
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


VENUS IN THE KITCHEN is a delightful and eccentric collection of aphrodisiac recipes. Here are dishes to seduce with and be seduced by - oysters with champagne, elderflower fritters and intoxicating love drinks, combined with fascinating recipes from antiquity to marvel at, from crane cooked with red wine to leopards marrow in goats milk. A classic, indispensable and utterly decadent book of recipes first published in 1952, Norman Douglas's VENUS IN THE KITCHEN is sure to put you in the mood for love.

Author Biography

Norman Douglas is the author of classics such as SOUTH WIND and OLD CALABRIA. He lived in Capri ( and in fact immortalised it in his books) for many years and died there in 1952. VENUS IN THE KITCHEN was published posthumously in the same year and became a cult classic.
