Just in time for Valentine's Day, Denver Botanic Gardens is offering couples an "Appetite for Seduction" cooking class. This romantic Valentine’s Day-inspired class will take place on Thursday, February 6, from 6-9 p.m. Co-author of the award-winning cookbook "A Well-Seasoned Kitchen,and host of Rocky Mountain PBS’s show of the same name, Lee Clayton Roper will guide the class through the preparation of the three-course dinner, which they'll enjoy at the class' conclusion.

Menu items that are sure to spice things up include avocado and grapefruit salad (avocados, due to their womanly shape, were once regarded as so salacious in Old World Spain, that Catholic priests forbade their parishioners form consuming them); prosciutto-wraped asparagus (asparagus was fed to grooms on the night of their weddings in 19th-century France); and chocolate biscuit cake (chocolate is thought to stimulate couples' minds and bodies).

Appetite for Seduction is $64 per person, or $59 for members. To register, click the following link:
