Press Raves:

"Media of all stripes are rushing to cash in on mainstream pot curiosity, but few publications could hope to produce something as smart and easy to digest as “Marijuana for Everbody!” Despite an understandably fawning tone toward the plant, McDonough’s research is balanced and her writing practical, an admirable mix of head and heart in a sprawling field that can seem intimidating to newcomers."—the Cannabist

Sativa Shrimp & Ganja Grits

Cannabis chefs love classic American comfort food, which is easy to understand because the effects of a relaxing, cozy edible high brings comfort and contentment to people. Loosely defined as food that evokes nostalgic memories, comfort food includes dishes like mac n’ cheese, meatloaf and mashed potatoes—all of which lend themselves to being infused with cannabis due to the high fat content.

Raised on this type of fare, Chef Esteban from Crowned Catering relishes adding cannabis to his favorite family recipes. A recent arrival to Los Angeles from Chicago, Esteban traveled the world as a young Army brat, sampling traditional cuisine from diverse locations and learning to cook for his large family.

“I lived in Germany for a time, so I grew up on schnitzel which I consider a comfort food,” Esteban shared. “It’s food that draws up emotions, and while it’s not always the healthiest, we focus on being unapologetically comforting.”

After getting some culinary education at Washburn Culinary Institute in Chicago, Esteban decided to pursue his dreams in L.A. after reading about other chefs integrating marijuana into their meals. Currently running a mainstream catering company, Esteban is working to launch a cannabis catering business in 2017 that will provide medicated meals.

“I only add about 10 mg of THC per item,” the chef remarked. “I want a little bit of punch so that you feel the THC and taste the cannabis infused with the food.”
