    If you’re running an industrial kitchen to make cannabis edibles-with a regular source of twigs, trimmings and other commercial growing by-products -featuring a number of different strains (and it’s all organically grown)-then this cookbook makes a certain amount of sense. Each and every recipe calls for the use of overprocessed, homogenized oil and/or butter infusions. Treating your very own primo buds this way is wasteful, expensive and unnecessarily time consuming-as well as a desecration on the order of boiling vegetables for hours and then slathering them with 1000 island dressing, or pouring ketchup on a very well done steak. There is shockingly little useful information here- HOW COULD THEY COMPLETELY FORGET TO MENTION DOUBLE BOILERS?!? This alone is an inexcusable example of Bad Kitchen Technique. They show little knowledge of/respect for the unique tastes and effects of various strains. There is very little context and zero amount of humor-instead you get Terribly Earnest & Thoughtful self congratulatory screeds alongside glossy, yummy food porn photos (the best thing about this piece of New Age Arriviste coffee table trash).
