    culinary pleasure

    I have prepared a lot of delicious food for your culinary pleasure.

    Is 'culinary' correctly used here?

    Many thanks.

    Not really. Culinary refers to cooking. The dish may be a culinary delight - a marvel of cooking - but it's not for the cooking pleasure of the guest; it's for his eating pleasure.
