Talk About Licking the Pot!

Photography, food, and marijuana—-wow! I’m enchanted. Anyone out there want me to photograph their experiments with gourmet cannabis cooking? Fast Company has an article  about one man’s foray into this new field. Here’s an excerpt.

Check out Cannabis Catering, a San Francisco-based outfit that specializes in marijuana cuisine. The brainchild of Chef Frederick Nesbitt, a California Culinary Academy-trained chef who has worked as personal chef for Jerry Rice and John Madden, Cannabis Catering offers four and five-course meals laced with ganja.

The idea for Cannabis Catering came to Nesbitt when he learned that his friend’s diabetic mother had been diagnosed with cancer. “I would bring back edibles [from the dispensary], but they’re so high in high-fructose corn syrup that she was high off sugar rather than being medicated,” he says. So Nesbitt began experimenting with his own pot food–starting with mashed potatoes.

…The meals costs approximately $100 per person, but Nesbitt won’t dish out his goods unless his patrons have proper documentation (read: a medical marijuana card).

I’d love to see somebody up here working on this.  People undergoing chemotherapy often have appetite problems.  This looks like a wonderful way to entice the appetite both with presentation and with content.

  • Not to be the turd-in-the-punch-bowl here but, giving mashed potatoes to a diabetic is no different than handing them a Snicker’s candy bar. Starches turn to sugar in the gut.

    And who gives a crap if he made meals for celebrities… Just because a person is popular and has money doesn’t mean they have good taste. As a matter of fact, it proves they don’t.

    • What about Vegan ? that looks like ham. Swine is a no no. Everybody knows pot goes with Tofu and rice.

      • Just remember…….if you can`t cut the mustard , you can always lick the jar

        • Sprinkle my pot into a nice spaghetti sauce and don’t hold back on the meat balls. Now for the mushrooms…..

          • Take a picture of that spaghetti dish and send it in! This thing, i gotta say, does not look very palatable. Can’t tell if it’s from a kindergarten class, a college art class, or the nuthouse. Not from a kitchen. Potatoes from a whippit dispenser, confetti paper sprinkles, some unidentifiable extruded animal flesh…And I wouldn’t even think of eating the garnish, not in that form!

  • I don’t think many people undergoing cancer treatment would be able to afford $100 meals very often
