Join Chef R.G. Emanuelle and sous chef Andi Marquette as they return to the kitchen to cook up another menu in their continuing quest to explore the sensuous qualities of food and illustrate how the act of preparing and eating it can engage much more than simply taste and smell. Food can become many things, from a gateway to greater intimacy to the creation or rediscovery of a connection. To help them in their quest, Andi and R.G. rounded up another group of cooks who created an array of dishes and meals, which they present to you here in a menu that ranges from sweet and romantic to sultry and seductive, from a relationship’s first tentative taste to the many layers of one that has simmered long and slow.
Each story also ends with a recipe. Some require cooking implements while others are whimsical accompaniments that don’t require cooking at all—at least not in the traditional sense. After all, food serves as more than sustenance—it’s a trigger for love, laughter, sex, pleasure, and carnal and sensory satisfaction. Whatever your palate prefers, you’re sure to find something tasty here.
The menu includes dishes by Andi Marquette, Brey Willows, Cheri Crystal, Cheyenne Blue, CK Combs, Emma Weimann, Jaye Markham, Jove Belle, Lea Daley, Liz McMullen , Marie Sterling, N.R. Dunham, Pascal Scott, R.G. Emanuelle, and Rebekah Weatherspoon.

About the Author
R.G. Emanuelle is a writer and editor living in New York City. Her university degree in English and literature propelled her into publishing, where she spent 20 years as an editor, typesetter, and graphic designer. She is co-editor of Skulls and Crossbones: Tales of Women Pirates, and her short stories can be found in Best Lesbian Erotica 2010; Lesbian Lust: Red Hot Erotica; Women in Uniform: Medics and Soldiers and Cops, Oh My!; Lesbian Cops: Erotic Investigations; Khimairal Ink; Read These Lips, Volumes 4 and 5; and the online collection Oysters & Chocolate. When she was child, a neighbor called her a vampire because she only came out after dark, so it’s fitting that her first novel, Twice Bitten, is about creatures of the night. When she’s not writing or editing, she can usually be found cooking or developing recipes, as she is also a culinary school graduate.
Andi Marquette is a native of New Mexico and Colorado and an award-winning mystery, science fiction, and romance writer. She also has the dubious good fortune to be an editor who spent 15 years working in publishing, a career track that sucked her in while she was completing a doctorate in history. She is co-editor of "Skulls and Crossbones: Tales of Women Pirates" and "All You Can Eat: A Buffet of Lesbian Erotica and Romance". Her most recent novels are "Day of the Dead", the Goldie-nominated finalist "The Edge of Rebellion", and the romance "From the Hat Down", a follow-up to the Rainbow Award-winning novella, "From the Boots Up". When she’s not writing novels, novellas, and stories or co-editing anthologies, she serves as both an editor for Luna Station Quarterly, an ezine that features speculative fiction written by women and as co-admin of the popular blogsite Women and Words. When she’s not doing that, well, hopefully she’s managing to get a bit of sleep.
