Cannabis infused edibles have arguably become the fastest growing sector of the emerging legal cannabis industry, and The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook: Feel-Good Food for Home Cooks (Skyhorse Publishing, September 2015) is much more than just a recipe book. Author Robyn Griggs Lawrence has created a revolutionary guide to harnessing the flavors, feel-good effects, and healing properties of the cannabis plant, which she believes is a “medicinal superfood.” With incredible, full-color photos by the talented Povy Kendal Atchison and a foreword by Jane West, Founder of Edible Events Co. and Women Grow, this is an “upscale cookbook for enthusiasts of all skill levels that approach cannabis as an ingredient to explore.” Combining years of experience from 12 gourmet chefs, a mixologist, and an ethnobotanist, this is a complete guide on how to optimize your experience cooking with cannabis.
Beginning with a detailed history of the plant, and the science behind its effects, Lawrence describes how to cultivate and process cannabis from your own garden much the same as you would any other herb. For the many consumers of cannabis-infused edibles who don’t have the space to grow their own, there is also a convenient buyer guide with tips on how to find a quality location to make your purchase, as well as how to choose the proper strain for each flavor profile, and desired effect. A convenient guide to the chefs’ favorite strains to use in the kitchen is the perfect place for the novice chef to begin. Step-by-step instructions show how to create homemade infusions at varying potency levels, and how to use those concoctions to craft a mouthwatering meal, or beverage, for any time of day. If you’ve been searching for more than just the commonly found recipes for cannabis-infused sweets and desserts, the Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook is your answer. Robyn Griggs Lawrence has brought her passion for healthy and sustainable living to life in this collection of gourmet recipes, including dishes like Crab and Mahi-Mahi Sliders, a Bok Choy, Cashew and Scallion Stir Fry, Sativa Onion Soup with Ginger and Lemon, and desserts like the Flourless Superfood Cannabis Chocolate Cake, and a Super Lemon Haze Banana Rum Surprise.
Lawrence is a successful lifestyle journalist in Colorado, with experience writing and managing blogs on HuffingtonPost.com, Care2.com, and Motherearthnews.com, and past publications including The Wabi-Sabi House, and Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House. Traveling the United States as editor in chief of Natural Home magazine from 1999-2010 brought Robyn in contact with experts on sustainable building and living, and she has brought those years of experience to this ground-breaking publication.
