Dr. Norm Ellstrand from UC Riverside will talk about some of the tales from his new book, Sex on the Kitchen Table. Start your Valentine's evening off right!

At the tips of our forks and on our dinner plates, a buffet of botanical dalliance awaits us. Sex and food are intimately intertwined, and this relationship is nowhere more evident than among the plants that sustain us. From lascivious legumes to horny hot peppers, most of humanity’s calories and other nutrition come from seeds and fruits—the products of sex—or from flowers, the organs that make plant sex possible.
