Food and Drink in Fifty Shades of Grey

Yesterday I finshed the first book out of the trilogy of 50 shades. The title of the first book is 50 shades of Grey. Please read reviews online about the book as it is not suitable for all ages http://www.eljamesauthor.com/home

I will not give you a lot of information about the story and plot as one should find out about it by oneself but one thing that I have to say is that food and drink is mentioned throughout the book.

I made a quick research and below you will find information about some of the dishes and drinks found in the first book.
