The Cannaisseur Series, founded in 2015 by Chef Coreen Carroll and her fiance, cannabis entrepreneur Ryan Bush, is a series of curated cannabis and exquisite food pairing experiences shared with open, like-minded lovers of both.
An underground pop-up where one can enjoy a gourmet meal with seasonal California ingredients paired with intermezzos of cannabis flower, edibles and extracts from California’s finest purveyors. Small infused bites are served as hors d’oeuvres and non-infused coursed meals are paired with flowers provided by local cultivators.
Throughout the event, you’ll hear from both the chef and the cannabis producers on the passion and process that went into everything you try.
Whether you are an experienced consumer, just discovering the amazing qualities of cannabis or dipping your toe back in after a long layoff, you’ll find each event extremely approachable. By keeping the infused fare to a maximum 5mg of THC, this gives you a chance to sample multiple bites with little worry of over-consuming.
During the meal, courses come infused with the non-psychoactive components of the cannabis plant. Chef Coreen will often infuse dishes with extracted cannabis terpenes, CBD or THCA only extracts, or ground cannabis leaves which allows for the focus to remain on the food.
At every event, guests are guided through a curated tasting of an array of cannabis flower strains after each course or throughout any of our mixer-style events. There is always plenty to consume while leaving options open to skip a round or two once you hit peak euphoria.
Each event has a different theme and menu while introducing a wide variety of craft producers from California. We strive to showcase only the highest quality products and ensure that all products are lab tested to ensure potency, quality and consistency.
Tickets are all-inclusive and each event features mildly infused hors d’oeuvres, drinks, a 4 course chef’s menu or buffet menu and unlimited sampling of products from curated sponsors. Each guest will take home a gift bag with an array of products tasted throughout the event as well as a few surpises.
