Cannabis is gaining more popularity in the kitchen.
So much so that one of the leading cannabis chefs in North America is now travelling across Canada hosting workshops and teaching chefs how to properly cook with it.
“This isn’t a fad. This isn’t a niche,” said chef Travis Petersen. “This is going to be here to stay. This is the new frontier in the culinary world”
Petersen made an appearance on the MasterChef Canada reality TV show before launching The Nomad Cook, a culinary brand focused on introducing the culinary world to cannabis.
“When most people think of culinary cannabis, we think of the brownie,” he told Global News. “There’s nothing wrong with the brownie but it’s just gotten so much more elevated than that.”
