Summary

“Half food-swap handbook, half cookbook, this volume will have you simultaneously gathering friends and dashing for the kitchen.” —Marisa McClellan, author of Food in Jars 
 
Part cookbook, part how-to guide, Food Swap features more than 80 recipes for artisanal items that will be coveted at food swaps and adored as gifts, including everything from salted caramel sauce and Meyer lemon curd to green tomato salsa, lavender shortbread, cultured butter, apricot jalapeño jelly, and rum vanilla extract. You’ll also find creative ways to irresistibly package your items, plus perforated gift tags ready for personalization. Finally, author Emily Paster—cofounder of the Chicago Food Swap, one of the biggest in the world—offers guidance on setting up a food swap in your own community, as well as inspiring stories from people who are part of this growing movement. 
 
“Paster, a food blogger and avid cook, has run Chicago Food Swap since 2011. If you’re not familiar with a food swap, now is the time to learn—the exchange of homemade goods is a wonderful antidote to the materialism that often surrounds the holidays.” —Chicago Tribune 
 
“Food swaps are a simple yet powerful way to gather people around our great common denominator: food! Emily Paster’s book is a roadmap for the journey toward stronger, more connected food-loving communities.” —LaManda Joy, author of Start a Community Food Garden 
 
“Paster offers guidance on finding a local food swap, strategies for successful swapping, and the basics on how to start and maintain your own event.” —Mother Earth Living

Chef Drummer is a firm believer that the food always comes first. Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. It’s more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. The culinary arts and science of responsible dosage are presented in a way that treats cannabis as one of the best ingredients in the world to cook with. Every item she prepares incorporates the flavor profile of the strain that she is using with what is being prepared, thus the cannabis is just as important as any other ingredient. Never before have recipes been presented like this. From the comforts of southern kitchens to the upscale stoves of Michelin star restaurants, each recipe is carefully crafted to elevate both the dish and the cook. In this book, you’ll learn:The basics of pairing budsHow to create unique butters and oils to incorporate in every mealTips for elevating breakfast, lunch and dinnerThe secret of marijuana as a flavor powerhouseHow to properly dose cannabis infused cuisine “Not only is her food out-of-this-world amazing, but her attention to detail is truly unique.” —PopSugar
