It started as a joke during an online chat with a group of writer friends as we were discussing the popularity of romance, erotica and cookbooks on some Amazon top lists. The discussion ended but the thought lingered so I figured, "Why not?" I proceeded to select ten recipes I'd made countless times before and, under the pseudonyms, Réal E. Hotte and Dasha Sugah, wrote ten corresponding faux-erotica short stories. It should be noted that each story contains explicit cooking activities which may suggest erotica but never once does anyone actually ‘get it on’ within these pages. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Bon appétit!
