Fifty Shades of Grey has moved out of the bedroom and into the kitchen with a new cooking class inspired by the erotic trilogy.
Rita Horn of Ventura, California along with Phyllis Vaccarelli, owner of Let’s Get Cookin’, a cooking school, created a class geared towards women who are more interested in S&M than pb&j.
The class, which began in August, features recipes for dishes such as playroom pretzel ropes, bondage wrapped shrimp and a martini called The Flogger, reported local paper, The Ventura County Star.
The drink is made with chocolate vodka and Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream. To get the Fifty Shades effect, the martini glass is garnished with a shortbread cookie in the shape of a tiny, multi-tailed whip just like the one Christian Grey uses.
Vaccarelli is seeing success with this new course and has even had mothers and daughters sign up to learn how to make these kinky treats. Previously, she taught a True Blood-inspired class after a cookbook based on the show came out.
This of course isn’t the first Fifty Shades inspired product. Author, E.L. James has already okayed a line of lingerie, a perfume and a soundtrack of classical music pieces that are referenced throughout the series.
Adding to the ever-growing list of Fifty Shades tie-ins is a 50/50 boot designed by Stuart Weitzman, which is part leather and part stretch fabric. Of course, if James needs any more ideas, they can check out CBS Local’s handy list of suggestions.
So would you sign yourself up for a Fifty Shades of Grey cooking class?
