One Ritz Carlton Drive,
Cuisine Type: Healthy
aphrodisiac culinary class hosted by Raya CHEF Gerlachat The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel
Featuring Special Guest Chef Richard Sandoval
In celebration of the month of romance, RAYA Chef Marissa Gerlach and guest chef Richard Sandoval, host an Aphrodisiac Culinary Class Saturday, February 11. The demonstration-style class is $109 per person and will be presented from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Following the demonstration, guests will enjoy the five-course menu, along with the paired cocktails.
The menu highlights such aphrodisiacs as pomegranates, oysters, avocados, salmon, and of course, chocolate. Oysters are brimming with zinc, a mineral that cranks up the production of testosterone, which has been linked to a higher sex drive. The pomegranate owes its passion power to antioxidants, which protect the lining of blood vessels, allowing more blood to course through them. Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which keep hormone production at its peak.
The Culinary Demonstration menu includes:
