Chefs feed hosts and movie star visitor judges dishes infused with hashish distillates, terpenes, kief, CBD, and after all, everybody’s favourite, strain-specific butters and oils. At the top, judges choose one chef to ship residence with $10,000.
The best a part of the present is how cooks use particular weed strains for every dish—they’re all simply downright mouthwatering. Here are a few of my favourite dishes in the present and the strains used to make them.
Grilled candy corn gazpacho & halibut ceviche w/ Mimosa
The total level of the present is to take the same old edible expertise of brownies and gummies and flip it into a real five-star culinary expertise. There are dishes like burgers, tacos, and soups that appeared like dumb hearth, however essentially the most fascinating dishes had been ones just like the Mimosa-infused Grilled Sweet Corn Gazpacho & Halibut Ceviche from Chef Amanda Jackson.

Black bbq surf & turf w/ Wedding Cake
The cooks had a reasonably numerous cupboard of strains to pick out from. But because the present was shot in LA, then after all Wedding Cake made an look.
We know Wedding Cake as that candy and earthy pressure that packs a hell of a punch. Chef Harold Sims is aware of it as the proper pressure to infuse right into a West African-inspired black bbq surf & turf.
Starring a ribeye infused with a Wedding Cake ghee, charred octopus, a charred vegetable Black BBQ sauce, and chickpea akara, the plate makes use of 2mg of THC to offer judges a lil’ excessive to go alongside with huge West African tastes.

Watermelon Sangria is a pressure that isn’t too well-known or documented. While we don’t know its genetics or normal results, we do know that it was used to infuse one of the vital scrumptious wanting dishes on the entire present.
The smoked lamb chop & cous cous from chef Derek Upton is a ravishing plate composed of cannabis-leaf-smoked lamb basted in Watermelon Sangria-infused butter, cous cous, and hashish leaf-smoked-paprika with savory caramel. The dish contained 2mg of THC total.
This is a troublesome pressure to search out, so attempt some Watermelon Kush when you can’t.
Five-cheese macaroni w/ Blue Dream
It’s not a weed present if Blue Dream doesn’t make an look. I’m fairly positive that’s in the Constitution, however you’d must look it up to make certain.
Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant pressure that was born and bred in California. It crosses a Santa Cruz Haze with Blueberry to offer you a candy blueberry-flavored pressure that many know for its uplifting and euphoric excessive.
On Cooked with Cannabis, Chef Matthew Chase used Blue Dream to take advantage of intriguing-to-Dante Jordan dish potential: a five-cheese macaroni made with cauliflower, five-cheese macaroni, Blue Dream-infused butter, and an apple garnish.
Most of the THC-infused dishes on the present hover round 2-3mg, however Chef Matthew Chase packed this one with 5mg for the people who find themselves attempting to really feel a lil’ sum’n sum’n greater than only a full abdomen from their weed dinner.
