Welcome to The Aphrodisiac Kitchen (TAK); a queer journal that examines plant based food as a cultural centerpiece through vignettes of romance, community, friendship, and more.

Andreas Joshua approaches cooking through a romantic lens. Having moved often since childhood, food became his source of stability and inspiration. After a thirteen year commitment to being meat-free, he has dedicated his life to an environmentally and ethically-conscious diet. He hopes that his journal, The Aphrodisiac Kitchen, will draw people into their kitchens to redefine what food means to them. His belief is that all foods are aphrodisiacs because when we cook for others we cultivate conversation, incite love and stimulate our minds.
