Herb: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Cannabis offers over 200 pages of gorgeously illustrated recipes that elevate the art and science of cooking with cannabis. Chefs Melissa Parks and Laurie Wolf have developed recipes that specifically complement and downplay the taste of the herb so that each appetizer, entrée, and dessert will be enjoyed to the fullest. No special culinary equipment is needed; home cooks can simply prepare an “extraction”–an infusion of cannabis into a medium such as oil or butter–then proceed as normal with the recipe.
Seasoned chefs and cooking novices alike will revel in creating homemade cannabis-infused treats with these delicious, reliable recipes. Discover expert tips on creating consistent and potent canna-butter, canna-oil, and canna-olive oil. Gain a better understanding of dosing levels and popular marijuana strains. Enjoy the art of at-home cuisine in an entirely new way with the first cookbook to treat the humble cannabis herb as the unique culinary ingredient that it is.
