The extraordinary aphrodisiac recipes in Venus in the Kitchen, or Love's Cookery Book were collated by Norman Douglas for the "private use and benefit of a small group of friends". The book, which was published in 1952, ranges from the simple and sublime (oysters in champagne, fillets of sole) to the decadently exotic (pie of bulls' testicles, sow's vulva - a favourite of Pliny's). Not for the vegetarian or the faint-hearted, it was praised by Elizabeth David and Graham Greene for its amorous "blend of the practical and the wildly impracticable".

With its air of scholarship, its blend of the practical and the wildly impractical, the crispness of its comments, this book will be one of my favourite Douglas's.' - Graham Greene 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.
