series of high-end marijuana cookbooks is Baked Italian
which features over 50 savory gourmet meals for chefs with discerning palates. This is the marijuana cookbook for the Jamie Oliver generation, featuring easy-to-follow directions that enable even the most timid of cooks to create delectable meals of all kinds including delicious seven-course repasts and wholesome recipes for a healthier and more mature variety of Mediterranean-inspired cannabis cuisine.
Baked Italian was written for people who want to eat their high without sacrificing good taste and a well-rounded diet. Few marijuana cookbooks address the fact that Cannabis is a spicy, harsh-tasting plant that often doesnt cook particularly well due to its flavor, consistency and inability to dissolve in water. In addition, marijuana cookbooks often only provide recipes for a variety of unhealthy snack foods which is actually counterproductive for medical patients. Baked Italian addresses these issues head on by providing stunningly accurate visual and textual instructions on how to make genuinely nutritious and well-balanced marijuana meals that look and taste great.
Most cannabis cookbooks simply instruct readers to make cannabis butter, and then add that butter to a variety of pre-existing, non-cannabis recipes. The results are a variety of meals that taste harsh, grainy, and difficult to swallow. The recipes in Baked Italian are designed to counteract the problematic flavor, texture and solubility of Cannabis in order to produce delicious meals that patients and recreational users alike will actually enjoy eating and looking at! Yzabetta Sativa goes even further and offers readers not one, but six, methods of extracting the THC from marijuana and using it to infuse her amazing array of seven course Italian meals.
