The foodie's guide to cannabis: a smart, sophisticated, and beautifully illustrated cookbook for at-home chefs wanting to safely create and experience their own edibles.
JeffThe420Chef is revolutionizing the world of edibles. He first began cooking with cannabis to help a close friend's mother manage the pain, nausea, and discomfort from her cancer treatments. Over time, he developed a specific process that effectively neutralizes the smell and taste of cannabis when infusing it into butters and oils, leading to a new understanding of edibles and their potential for medicinal use.
In The 420 Gourmet, JeffThe420Chef, combines his fun-loving approach to cooking with practical information about marijuana-including specific guidelines for safe dosing (along with a comprehensive dosage calculator), summaries of the principal strains and their typical effects, and details on the herb's medical and recreational benefits.
Jeff includes the step-by-step process for his signature "light-tasting" canna-butter and canna-oils, the secrets behind his outrageously delicious and truly unique recipes. Once you create these staple ingredients yourself, it is easy to incorporate cannabis into everyday dishes-the "pot-sibilities" are endless!
From brunch and small plates to salads and gourmet dinners-and featuring gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and kosher options-The 420 Gourmet elevates the edible experience. And by following Jeff's dosage guidelines, the culinary cannabis experience will no longer be limited to a single bite of a brownie. These mouthwatering recipes are fully adaptable to your goals, whether you need a full-course meal for nourishment and pain management or a quick snack to help you focus, relax, and enhance your creativity.
The 420 Gourmet will educate and entertain new and longtime cannabis users alike, while serving as the ultimate guide to cannabliss.
