What you'll do

Celebrate love with this delicious and playful 90 minute experience, exploring the art and science of aphrodisiacs, and experimenting with which foods activate your individual tastes. We go beyond basic textbook prescriptions and recipes, guiding you toward creativity and experimentation in the kitchen. Jena Chambers, professional aphrodisiac designer, shares the path and flow of her food creation process. This will ignite your curiosity about your own and others' tastes, giving you the confidence to nurture your own sexy, fun food creations at home. While you learn about today's palette of love and passion-enhancing ingredients, you sip invigorating fresh beverages and enjoy three rounds of small bites, custom tailored to your individual taste and preferences. Beyond a cooking class, this is an interactive flavor laboratory, peppered with tasteful adult comedy and welcoming spontaneous questions. This is a perfect kickstart to a fun night, with a date, friends or solo. You’ll leave with conversation starters and food for thought, as well as an aphrodisiac lollipop to savor in your leisure.

Learn more about Jena

Jena

I like to ignite joy and healthy surprises with food and flavor, and to help guests connect with each other and their taste buds in new ways. In 1998 I began my aphrodisiac education with Isabelle Allende's magical cookbook, Aphrodite. My culinary experiments continued for years and grew increasingly more public when I moved to New York City in 2008 and began offering aphrodisiac food and drink experiences at events. In 2012 I founded an aphrodisiac lollipop company, Pandora's Pops, which continues to blossom. I'm a former massage school director, Duke University graduate, consultant for the Museum of Sex, and an active part of the Airbnb travel community. Since 2018, I have offered a popular aphrodisiac candymaking experience on this platform. I look forward to meeting you and sparking your relationship with food, drink and each other.

Where you'll be

Our kitchen is at 10th St and 1st Ave, a tree-lined street in the heart of the artful East Village. This is a wonderful neighborhood for discovering new things: diverse boutiques, restaurants, bars, and theaters. A few favorite local places to enjoy before: Tarallucci E Vino has a lovely outdoor happy hour and Montauk Salt Cave is relaxing, or after: Raclette has delicious French wine/atmosphere and the Russian & Turkish Baths is an icon.
