Cooking with Cannabis Class / Denver, CO / Every Sunday 11am / TICKETS
A Delve into Infused Cooking with Soul Food and High Spirits
Remember that time in college? Your roommate baked a pan of homemade magic brownies and they were super-delicious, so you ate two. They were also super strong, so you were stoned out of your gourd for a full 24 hours. After that, you swore off edibles — until the next time that same roommate started stirring green butter on the stovetop once again.
That was the old days of edibles, when recreational weed was illegal and edible creations were a bootleg kitchen project involving a lot of guesswork. Times have changed, at least here in sunny and legalized Denver, Colorado. Now you can walk into a dispensary and choose between a dizzying array of handcrafted edibles, each carefully labeled and dosed with an appropriate amount of THC. Gummies, cookies, chocolates, even beverages — the edibles aisle just keeps growing.
Even better than the edibles aisle at the dispensary is the chance to learn how to make your own edible delights — and not overdo it on the dosage! This cooking class is for everyone who likes to get their hands a little dirty in the kitchen, from experienced cooks to basic microwavers who want to level up their culinary game. Dishes are usually on the simpler side and tend toward a Sunday soul food style. Chicken and waffles with infused toppings and side dishes is the most popular menu.
Arrive to Stir Cooking School, a new venue in Denver’s trendy Highlands neighborhood that looks like the scene of a cooking TV show. You’ll be greeted with mimosas by a trained chef and expert in cannabis decarboxylization. He and his assistant will give a demonstration on how to infuse butter with cannabis, and that butter will be the magic building block for the rest of the meal. He’ll then brief you on the different dishes being prepared at the various cooking stations. Then it’s up to you to jump in and help the team effort to put a delicious spread on the table for everyone to share.
Note: Stir Cooking School is a non-consumption venue, so if you’d like to toke before you cook, just hit your stash on the way and nobody will judge. That’s the best way to enjoy the class in an already-lifted state. You are invited to eat the fruits of your work at the end of class, but THC ingested through the stomach generally doesn’t take effect until an hour or two later.
It’s also worth noting that THC ingested through the stomach affects people differently than other means of consumption. In addition to a more delayed reaction, it usually results in a stronger, more intense high. We recommend the “start low and go slow” approach. Then sit back and enjoy the rest of your Sunday afternoon as your infused meal elevates the Denver experience to new highs.
