Illicit and delicious! It’s not quite legal… yet… but cannabis culture in Toronto is starting to collide with the city’s culinary scene. This weekend for instance, Green Market is hosting a Midsummer Nights Dream Dinner, a multi-course feast infused with cannabis extracts.
Priced at $200 per person, the five-course tasting menu, from Chef Lida-Tuy of Baker’s Shop, opens with crostini topped with sage pea puree, sautéed mushrooms, and pickled onions before moving on to a salad course. A two-bite poutine is up next followed by an entree featuring pork loin with swiss chard, sage brown butter carrots, smashed potatoes, peach puree, and charred onion, and for dessert, roasted peaches with burnt honey ice cream.
The dinner is being held at a top secret location which will only be announced to ticket holders a night in advance.
Please, someone, pass the
