As the cannabis industry continues to emerge with legalization, so do the various sectors within it. Cannabis events and private cannabis-themed dinners and parties are one sector of the industry that we have seen growing across the country. This allows professionals from other industries, in this case chefs and others from the food and beverage industry, to use their skills in cannabis. One of those professionals whom I have had the pleasure of meeting is Leather Storrs,
Leather Storrs is the Chef and co-owner of Noble Rot in Portland Oregon and holds an extensive culinary background. In addition to many appearances on local stations, Storrs competed on, and won, an episode of “Extreme Chef” on the Food Network.
Storrs contributes videos regularly and covers topics from dosing to flavor to perfecting your cannabis dinner. I have had the opportunity to attend 2 private events that he was the lead chef for, including the Canna Society Soiree, where he prepared salmon, roasted beets, polenta, chocolate torts and even a beautiful, cannabis-themed cheese plate. Some of the food was infused with cannabis oil and some was not, but it was all amazing!
