Yes, we have the cookbook. See it here: Seducer’s Cookbook, 1963

Seducer’s Cookbook, Mimi Sheraton, 1963, First Edition, Stated First Printing: Clever and unusual cookbook with recipes for special occasions. As-if-new condition. Published by Random House, New York, in 1963. Hard cover book with NO dust jacket. 214 pages. Book in as-if-new condition. Binding firm. Hinges perfect. Pages entirely clean and clear. (The illustrations, which are many, are equally clever, but I can’t find the illustrator’s name anywhere.)

This cookbook has sophisticated recipes used in elegant menus presented in chapters with titles like, “The Long Hot Summer (How a man can seduce a woman in his apartment when his wife and children are away for the summer, and how not to get caught.)” Or, “How To Get Him to Marry You.” Or, “”Over the Bounding Main (Seduction in a sailboat.)” Or, “Someone Else’s Wife.” Or, “After Bed, What? Light snacks for an encore, and breakfast suggestions if you’re lucky.)”
