about

A lavish full-colour compendium, WISEWOMAN’S COOKERY looks at the relationship between food and sensuality throughout the ages. It reveals how fruit, vegetables, herbs, and spices can arouse and enhance sexuality in modern relationships and how natural foods can promote physical and emotional healing. Shannon Loeber and Mary Edwards spent 5 years researching and writing this book. Their research took them to such esteemed halls of learning as the Lambeth Palace Library in London, Trinity College, Dublin, and the Folklore Department at the University College of Dublin. While there, they studied women’s lore, folk traditions, ancient cultures, and myths and poetry, exploring how it all relates to topics of the palate and the many genres of food history. Readers will discover a wealth of food-related folklore and history--as well as mystery and magic--through teachings of wisdom and age-old practices, sexuality, and romance. According to the authors, “Teaching the woman’s lore and usage of each plant, be it for nutrition, healing, or altering the conscious state, was passed from mother to daughter, aunt to niece, grandmother to granddaughter for generations. The village wisewoman offered second sight, healing by touch and hope by their blessings, all through the use of herbs and herbal lore.” Chapters include herb craft, spice sorcery, flowers, fruits and vegetables, a section on garden alchemy and more--all illustrated with beautiful images that offer a visual feast for the eye. The book also includes portraits of women in history and the deeds for which they are famous . . . and infamous. WISEWOMAN’S COOKERY is not just a hands-on reference; it is filled with stimulating recipes for aphrodisiac cuisine, herbal remedies, and sensual elixirs. Cooking together with intimate encounters in mind, couples can enhance their relationship. What could be more fun than eating and lovemaking, with a dash of magic mixed in? This book will appeal to women who value natural nourishment and a healthy sex life and to those who want to cook quick, great tasting recipes made from fresh food to help promote health and well-being. With its erotic edge, WISEWOMAN’s COOKERY is a perfect gift for loving couples, young adults, and seniors, too.
