LA Times: 6 cannabis cookbooks with recipes from basic to gourmet
“This 3-year-old cookbook from two classically trained chefs — the pair have degrees from the Culinary Institute of America, Le Cordon Bleu and Johnson and Wales between them — is one of the better books about cannabis cooking. It’s both pragmatic and culinary-minded, and avoids the stoner language that can obfuscate the prose of the genre. The concise “cannabis 101” intro section concludes with good recipes for canna-oil, canna-butter and compound butters made with it — a great and nicely cheffy touch. The recipes focus on well-sourced ingredients and give techniques for components in such a way that you could easily use the book for non-pot cooking. I’d switch out the cannabutter for regular butter and make the triple-chocolate espresso cookies on a regular rotation, and the matcha sugar cookies too.”
The New Yorker
The Martha Stewart of Marijuana Edibles
It’s a category that used to begin and end with the bone-dry pot brownie, served in a college dorm room. Laurie Wolf is a leader in its gourmet revolution.
"I’m warming to the idea of trying cannabis again when I hear about a “Tapas & Terps” dinner hosted by Laurie Wolf, author of Herb: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Cannabis. Vaporizers will be on hand, says the Evite, and each course will be served with a strain that showcases a dominant terpene.
It’s a rain-soaked evening when my husband and I arrive at Wolf’s swank floating home in Oregon City. Our hostess ushers us into an airy living room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Willamette River and striking artwork on the walls—including an original Mapplethorpe photograph. We chill on the couch with ten others—some of whom are already passing around a vape pen. (I demur.) There’s a cannabis-activist power couple, a young woman in a chic gauzy black dress, and Laurie’s fetching daughter-in-law, Mary, with whom she runs an edibles company. Conversation flits from which pot growers use organic methods to the benefits of vape pens."
Oregon's Super-High Standards for Marijuana Edibles
"Laurie & MaryJane Nut Mix: Made by Oregon City residents Laurie Wolf and her daughter-in-law, Mary Wolf, these nuts won first place at the 2015 Dope Cup in the hotly contested “savory edibles” category."
"Laurie Wolf has the recipes down. Her mixed nuts, with rosemary, sea salt, brown sugar and cumin, won a 2015 Dope Cup award. The Almond Cake Bites won second place. The Laurie & MaryJane line of edibles is currently sold at medical marijuana dispensaries around Portland. But before Wolf, the author of HERB: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Cannabis, and her business partner can expand to the recreational market, they need follow state requirements to keep their products on shelves."
"Not only can you raise eyebrows and consciousness all at once with these recipes, you can gain a new level of understanding when it comes to the science behind dosing levels."
High Quality, High Results
"When it's done right, pot can enhance the flavor of a meal, complement a particular ingredient and heighten the overall experience of consuming food. That's where Laurie and MaryJane come in with their cooking expertise and stellar recipe-developing prowess. For them, the key is treating cannabis like any other ingredient and using its distinct flavor profile to boost and enhance the taste of a dish."
