More than a cookbook, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis is a valuable resource for new inspiration and excitement surrounding cannabis, food, and responsible consumption. Tracey Medeiros introduces the reader to dozens of organic farmers, award-winning chefs, artisans, and food producers who are leading the green revolution by doing their part to demystify cannabis and its culinary use. Individual profiles contain stories from the book’s contributors who come from rural and suburban communities and bustling cities across this nation. These folks have generously shared their personal struggles and successes which have led them to understand the many health and wellness benefits of the cannabis plant and its important role in society.
From chemistry to culinary, the book contains 125 mouthwatering recipes, such as:
- Chicken Kale Meatballs with Cherry Tomato and Pesto Sauces from Chef Jordan Wagman
- Avocado Mash with Nori and Cucumber from Chef Michael Magliano
- CBD-Infused Vegan Gluten-Free Miso Broth from Jessica Catalano

"Marijuana-cooking has come a long way from the pot brownies of the 1960s. Today there’s flat iron steak and grilled stone fruit salad with CBD-infused honey apple cider vinaigrette. And for dessert, mini peach bourbon pound cake paninis with THC, or cannabis-infused dark chocolate spiced parfait. Fit for a stylish restaurant or a fun dinner party, these recipes and many more appear in The Art of Cooking with Cannabis." —The Boston Globe
"The Art of Cooking with Cannabis: CBD and THC-infused Recipes from Across America showcases dishes that fall outside the tired pot-brownie cliche. They include cannabis-cured salmon and squid-ink rice crackers with poached picked radishes and avocado purée. And the one brownie recipe in the mix is a s'mores brownie that packs chocolate chips, crushed graham crackers, mini marshmallows and 10 milligrams of THC into each square." —Los Angeles Times

"A comprehensive and delicious look at the endless possibilities of the cannabis kitchen, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis brings together the farm-to-table movement and cannabis in a new and unique way. Jam-packed with chef-created recipes featuring cannabis and hemp in a wide variety of techniques and dishes, The Art of Cooking with Cannabis makes cooking with this star ingredient simple and versatile. From desserts to dressing and everything in between, each recipe would be delicious with or without cannabis. But what really sets this cookbook apart from the pack is Mederios’s detailed storytelling that examines each recipe’s inspiration and tells each chef’s story, while connecting them to the farmers behind the food. In this way, Mederios brings the farm-to-table movement to cannabis, and by breaking the book into regional sections, the reader can see local ingredients, flavors, and trends emerge, making this book as much an anthology of food in the United States as is it culinary cannabis across the country." —Rachel Burkons, co-founder of Altered Plates
