Cannabis Cuisine

Bud Pairings of a Born Again Chef

By Andrea Drummer

Much more than just a pot cookbook, Cannabis Cuisine elevates marijuana to a fine cuisine. Chef Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-op, a Los Angeles–based company that caters high-end, intimate dinner parties ─ AND, she is a world class marijuana chef. Cooking with marijuana: In her debut cookbook, chef and author Andrea Drummer guides home cooks through an adventure of the palette. 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. Filled with recipes, but more than a marijuana cookbook, Cannabis Cuisine elevates marijuana to the highest levels of cuisine. 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 Buds • How to Create Unique Butters and Oils to Incorporate in Every Meal • Tips for Elevating Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner • The Secret of Marijuana as a Flavor Powerhouse • How to Properly Dose Cannabis Infused Cuisine.

Zen Bender

By

Forty, chronically single, and up an extra 20 pounds, TV news producer Stephanie Krikorian fell victim to The Great Recession, finding herself suddenly unemployed. One unwanted pregnancy away from being a Lifetime Original Movie, Stephanie had to reinvent herself . . . and fast. So, to keep her head above water, she started ghostwriting self-help and diet books for a variety of well-known experts. However, she didn’t just write each book she took on, she lived it—chanting, journaling, reflecting, reframing, removing SIBO foods from her diet (or was it adding?)—whatever it took to get deep into the heart of each project. And then, as her ghost-writing business grew, she started reading other self-help books as well—for “research." Or so she told herself. That’s when things went next level. Overwhelmed by the sheer number of life fixes available, Stephanie scrambled to plug the multiple holes that surely must have existed in her mind, body, and soul. She went on what turned out to be a near decade long Zen Bender. She hit the guru circuit hard, like it was her job —no psychic, class, coach, fixer, or self-help book left behind. She did what Oprah said to do. She did what the Spiritual Owl said to do. She did what anybody said to do, frankly. With every radical effort came the unfulfilled promise of massive live-altering change and improvement. And then right around her 49th birthday, with one year left in her forties, screaming towards age 50, she was walking out to the end of the Venice Pier in Los Angeles, exhausted after a grueling session of Reiki, listening to, you guessed it, a self-help book (that was saying she was chubby because she must hate her mother) when it hit her: maybe I’m good enough already. Maybe she had been all along. Zen Bender is a collection of witty, moving, insightful stories, bookended with both the zany words of wisdom Stephanie picked up during her decade seeking personal growth and enlightenment, and some more concrete, grounded advice of her own. This book is a hilarious snapshot of one woman’s 10-year journey on the self-help circuit woven with insight on embracing age 50 with a wine glass full of acceptance and a chaser of self-love. Stephanie, who doesn’t hate her mother or her father or her seventies childhood that included the Dorothy Hamill haircut, was born and raised in Canada. She currently splits her time between New York City, and East Hampton, and spends a lot of in Los Angeles. Prior to launching her ghost-writing business, Stephanie worked in the news business for CNBC, BusinessWeek, Reuters and the Wall Street Journal. One Emmy nomination and nearly 20 book collaborations later, including a New York Times Bestseller, her essays and articles have appeared in multiple publications including O, the Oprah Magazine. Zen Bender is Stephanie’s first solo book.

God and Love on Rt 80

By

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.

Hug Therapy

By

The valuable concepts and methods presented in Hug Therapy gives readers increased connectivity in the world. It also provides an opportunity to engage in an online community with a healthy and hugful message providing inspiration and support. The Hug is something everyone can relate to and deeply benefit from at no cost ((minus the cost of the book!)). Unlike many self-help or self-development books Hug Therapy has an interactive program that meets readers where they are and supports them hug by hug on their personal journey. This empowers each reader with user friendly tools to enhance and support their efforts to grow and change. Technology and social media are detached and often toxic. There is ongoing research into the impact is has on our mental health. The Hugging Ambassador, Gary Havel Jr. was the first Hugging Ambassador to successfully complete a 21-day hugging journey on Facebook Live. Much attention is focused on how the internet can be used to isolate and disconnect. However, it can also be used powerfully as a tool to be deeply and meaningfully connected to our family, friends and fellow huggers. This book and movement allows for a unique platform for likeminded thinkers and huggers to connect and be able to support each other and create traction around their individual causes to have more connection in the world. In a world with much division, bullying and name calling Hug Therapy is a platform that can unite leaders in creating powerful positive messages and hugful change. Doctor Stone is real and approachable. Readers will have access to interacting with him and benefit from dealing with their specific issues, questions, or concerns. His focus is on being available and having leaders go on 21-day journeys that inspire the individual and like a Stone being dropped in a pond has many powerful reverberations. The book includes a wide range of tools that the reader has direct access to and support in using most effectively in a way that fits each reader’s specific circumstances and challenges. One of the most powerful tools is the hugging life baseline pre and post-test. This gives the reader a snapshot of their life and what is working or not working. Or possibly not working for them as well as they would like. It allows readers to quickly have clarity about what impacts they want to create and put in motion a plan to create these changes through the power of hugging. It also allows for a follow-up after the 21-day journey to see in what areas they experienced growth and use this to be increasingly successful and generative on future 21-day journeys. https://www.thehugdoctor.com/hugging-life-baseline/ There are concrete exercises that engage readers and allow them to embrace a rich interactive process. This makes it possible for an impact to be made from the first minutes and certainly in the first day readers pick up and embrace the book. Hug Therapy isn’t just inspirational, it’s pragmatic with actionable tools and methods.

Drink Like a Geek

By

Drink Like a Geek marries Jeff’s twin passions for alcohol and geek culture: in the early 2000s, Jeff directed two documentaries about Star Wars Episode I (the first in the build-up to its release, and the second after fans realized it sucked). There will be cocktail recipes throughout Drink Like a Geek — interpretations of Miruvor of Middle Earth, Dornish Red and Arbor Gold of Westeros, etc. — but the emphasis will be more on getting to know various subcultures than in genre recipe books like The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy. That emphasis should be clear in the intro chapter included at the end of the proposal, which is about an experience Jeff had crossing enemy lines and drinking Romulan Ale at Dragon*Con in Atlanta
