Just hearing the name of the place where it happens, you will probably be in the clouds too, Venice Beach, Los Angeles California. It’s a meeting between two taste experts J Botafarm, the farmer and Nate the head of the Wallace Culver city. As soon as they met the idea of infused meals sprouted. After finding a place they worked on the menu. You are about to enter another world, take these pretty ice cubes with a leaf of Cannabis in it. Do you know how they are obtained? By laser cutting.
When gastronomy becomes a playground, Bon Cannapetit.
The goal: to get away from old recipes like bhang butter from Marrakech and brownies … etc. So here we work from the distillate, it is the purest concentrate that can be obtained from fractional distillation. That is to say that all the components are separated .. on one side cannabinoids, on the other terpenes, waxes and chlorophyll. It is neither more nor less a distillation by means of a kind of big still a little specific which separates the components. Like this one.
You can cook very easily with this product because it has no flavor … the uniform taste of greenery, this aftertaste of spinach disappears completely. Then it is possible to include the terpenes on demand for the desired taste. Thus it was possible for us to make oysters at Jack Herrer during this last meal. For the terpenes the secret of course is the dosage, the palace tells you right away if you are on the right track.
“Before last dish, in general we use rather olive oil infused with CBD to compensate a little the effect of THC and prolong the meal experience with happiness for everyone.In general with cannabinoids on talk about micro dosing at home, no question of ending up on the couch or even in the middle of a meal, it’s a gustatory and sensual culinary experience, not some kind of get-high contest.”
“Anyway, the guests receive a vape-pen Botafarm with the same distillate as the one in the kitchen when they arrive and a big Canna Cigar awaits them at the end of the meal for the amateurs. relax and learn to discover a whole cultural dimension and I would go so far as to say artistic, Cannabis of very high standing.”
#Choice of varieties and marriage of the flavors
“The chef Nate Santana chooses the varieties, I remember a blueberry muffin pheasant stew that had completely upset the dish, the fruity flavors of the plant can also completely transform.On my side I harmonize vape-pens as a result, the vanilla lemon notes of the vapers also crown this terpene aestheticism. I believe that Nate and I respectively have a certain sense of elegance of taste each in his specialty and that’s why we get along so well.” J from Botafarm
