Who is ‘Cooked with Cannabis’ host Leather Storrs?
So, how did Leather start cooking with cannabis? After his avant-garde style restaurant in Portland closed in 2008, the Netflix chef came up with a new concept to get customers’ attention.
“When I revisited cooking with weed, I realized I could do the kind of food that excited me,” he said in a 2019 interview with Willamette Week. “The things that make me, the things that I like — food, words and playing with the two — reach their apex with the addition of weed.”
“Cooked with Cannabis is a show where weed is a seasoning rather than the reason. It’s granular, educational, heartfelt and smart,” Leather told Food & Wine. “The contestants had personal and romantic relationships with the herb and they knew its intricacies: medically, chemically, spiritually and as an intoxicant. Further, there was a real sense of community and camaraderie.”
