Using personal stories from his own life as well his time as a professional matchmaker, Schiavoni offers 'recipes' not just for food, but for relationships that have grown stale and suggests that trust, communication and intimacy are the byproducts of a sexually charged dominant and submissive relationship

More than just a cookbook, Collared Cooking is a lifestyle primer for curious adults, wannabe Italian chefs and aspiring Latin lovers. It is a reflection on a special type of relationship and sexuality.  

This is a book for curious singles or couples who want to safely take those first steps. It’s for those who want to explore without moving too fast, getting hurt or choosing the wrong partner.   It is all based on real people with real contributions of photos, blog entries and letters.



Bringing the reality of intimacy & submission to light.
