Pleasant Vices is a four-part series on aphrodisiacs, beer, sugar and chocolate. Each is hosted by Tasha Marks with invited guests and each has an accompanying recipe film. To accompany this episode Tasha is making a cocktail using the flavours of Ancient Egypt which will be available from Monday on this channel.
