CBD is gaining speed as a popular “ingredient” to add to food dishes on menus at area restaurants. Are you a chef or culinary professional looking to incorporate CBD into your cuisine and restaurant offerings? Then this event is for you!
“Cooking with CBD” puts The Herbal Chef, Christopher Sayegh, in center stage for a first of its kind industry event on Monday, May 13th between 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Warehouse on Watts located at 923 N Watts Street. Cooking with CBD aims to breathe new life into the city’s culinary offerings.
Chef Chris will be joined by NHL and NFL pros Riley Cote, of the Philadelphia Flyers, and Todd Herremans, of the Philadelphia Eagles – co-owners of their popular BodyChek Wellness CBD line – along with others. Following the main event, a select few VIPs will be welcomed to a private dining experience where the day’s instructions come to life.
You may recognize the name from features across FOX Business, NBC News, Fast Company, Newsweek, and The Washington Post. But, Chris isn’t your average celebrity chef. No. Chris is an unparalleled talent in the art of cannabis-infused cooking and has held countless primetime guest spots showing off his signature trade — like that time he made a private audience drool over preparations as a guest chef on VICE’s Bong Appetit.
Following the main afternoon event, VIP ticket holders will join each other (and Chris) at a very special dining table—in a very special, not-yet-revealed location. (Though the agency can confirm it’ll be somewhere within the central business district of Philadelphia and “transportation won’t be an issue.”)
There, this first of its kind epicurean presentation will bring to life a number of Chef Chris’ most coveted concoctions in a six-course tasting menu compiled of locally-sourced ingredients, complementing the spring season in Philly.
Sadly, there will be no marijuana (aka, “bud” or “flower” as they say) on deck the afternoon of the event. This installment of the Cooking series presented by the budding FOUR20 Creative Collective features only CBD-infused items due to the still not-so-friendly state-wide prohibition on recreational cannabis use.
