Recreational cannabis is gaining traction across the nation, with more states adapting expansive laws legalizing marijuana for recreational use. Join The Herbal Chef, Chris Sayegh, as he summarizes the common misconceptions of cooking and infusing food with cannabis, the basics of dosing, examines market trends in this (currently) $22 billion industry, discusses how it is being used in the experience of fine dining, catering, and pop-ups, and what we can expect the future of edibles to look like. Chris will also demo a simple extraction and then show how to homogenize it into a sauce without it losing its potency.
