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.
