Outlaw Kitchen - Cooking with Cannabis

Saturday, May 20, 2017, 2:00 - 4:00 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Robyn Griggs Lawrence, author of The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook, presents instructions for harnessing the herb’s unique flavor profile and medicinal benefit through mouth-watering recipes.
Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine." Cannabis is both. In this class, you’ll learn how to use cannabis – a sacred plant that has provided humans with food and medicine for centuries – in your kitchen for health, wellbeing and culinary creativity. Learn foolproof methods for making butter and oil infusions and alcohol tinctures – the building blocks of cannabis cuisine – and how to safely dose the food you make so you can enjoy and share exquisite dishes that take full advantage of cannabis's intriguing flavor profiles and health benefits. You’ll learn how to confidently select the best quality, healthiest cannabis, what parts of the plants you can cook with, and how to use concentrates.

Robyn Griggs Lawrence, author of the bestselling The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook, teaches people to safely prepare and consume organic, sustainably grown cannabis for health and wellbeing. Her work has been featured in Bloomberg, The Guardian, High Times, Fast Company, Alternet, Huffington Post, Food Republic, Publishers Weekly, and more. She teaches a popular Green Flower Media course, The Fundamentals of Cooking with Cannabis; regularly posts healthy recipes at TheTravelJoint.com; and writes for High Times, Sensi, and Lift magazines. Robyn’s history of cannabis cuisine, part of Rowman & Littlefield’s Studies in Food and Gastronomy Series, will be published in 2018.
