“A fresh take and clear guide to cooking with cannabis, Edibles is an essential makeover for infused treats. Gone are the stale pot brownies of yesteryear. In their place, Stephanie and Coreen demonstrate how to micro-dose delicious bites and pantry staples.” —Vanessa Lavorato, co-host of Bong Appétit and founder of Marigold Sweets
“If you want to learn about and understand how to cook with cannabis, Stephanie and Coreen will take you on an edible journey of creativity and technique! A must-have addition to your culinary library. Bravo!” —Mindy Segal, James Beard Award-winning pastry chef, chef/owner of HotChocolate, and creator of Mindy’s Artisanal Edibles
“Edibles” is a just-published, user-friendly cookbook in a few notable ways: There is a lengthy and well-defined introductory section that discusses dosage, potency, effects, terminology and techniques. The 30 recipes that follow are purposefully low dose (5 milligrams per serving), which is very helpful for beginning cooks, as well as those with a potentially problematic sweet tooth (Stephanie Hua is a confectioner at a marshmallow company; she and Coreen Carroll met at culinary school in San Francisco). The recipes are also a lot more appealing than those in many cannabis cookbooks, which can tend to run a little toward dorm food. Hua and Carroll instead give well-written recipes for cardamom caramels, gruyère and green garlic gougères, strawberry jam Pavlovas and roasted grape crostini. The blueberry lemon French macarons are a serious improvement on pot brownies."
