Cannabis Catering: "High" Quality Meal Options

Rating:
4.5/5,

    There are many businesses trying to capitalize on the up-and-coming industry or legal marijuana. With more prescriptions being issued more businesses keep on popping up and there is one interesting concept we've never seen before!

    Cannabis Catering creates unique meals for those who have a prescription for marijuana as a treatment option. Not everyone who takes it for medicinal purposes wants to feel like they're getting high. They don't all want to smoke it, and baked goods can be very high in sugar. These meals are prepared to be tasty and provide the medicinal benefits. The only downside is the costs are comparable to those at a 5-star restaurant, but if you're a foodie who's got to get their fix, this could be the right option and this business has surely found their niche!

    Is that a real picture of the food? What is that, mashed potatoes and chocolate?

    It looks like thin slices of beef; kind of like Beef Tartare. Which is *QUITE* tasty. Yum.

    To me it looks like roast beef seasoned with lipton dry soup mix, herbed & smashed potatoes, a demi glaze sauce, diced beets, carrots and corn compote and garnished with a nice sprig of moon cabbage.

    Swim loves to cook.

    Oh yes, I see the meat now. I was thinking pot heads sometimes eat some weird stuff but mashed potatoes and chocolate?? And that meat looks cooked, isn't beef tartare raw?

    I'm guessing weed butter was used to make those potatoes as they have a green tent to them.

    Pot roast? Sure! And pass the mashed pot-tatoes!

    Jonesing for some gourmet tri-tip and a solid buzz? 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.

    Now Nesbitt cooks an array of cannabis-laced delectables. A sample menu might include salad, lobster bisque, whiskey tri-tip with a demi-glazed sauce (containing marijuana tincture or ground-up hashish), and an infused Belgian chocolate fountain.

    Each meal contains the equivalent of three to five pot cookies, but Nesbitt says he can customize the food depending on what customers want. "When you're eating a cookie, you're eating as much as you can in one portion. I'm spreading it out through a whole meal," he says. "The last thing I need is people freaking out on me."

    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'm trying to just feed people," he says. "This is one little ingredient of what I'm doing."
