The Most Decadent thing I’ve Eaten/Smoked This Week

Most Luscious=Most Delicious!WARREN BOBROW: IPHONE X

Perhaps it was the Lemon Tree strain of Cannabis from the California Bud Company seducing me at that very moment, with her hauntingly woodsy, citrus tinged aromatics, further scintillating inhalations, each one offering deep rips of iChing level intellectualism, the experience leaving a perfumed moment in your heart that is deeply mesmerizing. Each subsequent puff offering hints of cedar wood, dripping with raw honey and crushed fall leaves and more sweet and spicy citrus oil that coats your lips and tongue. Coming into view are scents of the very tips of young pine needles as you brush up against them. Their Douglas fir scented sticky oils, releasing their perfume all over your shoes and socks, while being gently crushed under foot. Yes that is what enticed me to share their deep success and their utter excellence, thank you all for making it so and placing those memories into my brain. It’s made my food journalism even more satisfying.

WE MADE IT TO FORBES!

…And it’s a love letter to the Bull Run Lifestyle.

In a land far away in New York City, where people are awoken by car horns, have their clothes professionally cleaned and check the DOW industrial average while brushing their teeth, they dream of a simpler life. To them, the Oregon lifestyle is a fairy tale. The sap that comes from our trees is a thick and vibrant viscoses that courses through the veins of our forests, gushing with life. Our air is crisp and clean, with the soft, rustling sounds of leaves and animals rolling in the gentle breeze, and everything that is grown and cared for is nurtured by the love and light that keeps our land going. And, according to Forbes writer Warren Bobrow, our cannagars capture it all.

Cocktails to Mocktails: How Cannabis Beverages Changed My Relationship with Alcohol

by Sophie Saint Thomas CULTURE 

While some people recovering from substance abuse do best with a zero-tolerance policy regarding any intoxicant, others are able to safely use cannabis. I’m one such person, and my life is all the better for it.

In Humboldt County, California, near some of the most beautiful outdoor cannabis farms in the world, I sat with friends in a loft in the town of Eureka and sipped a delicious drink. There was no alcohol in the grapefruit infusion. There was, however, cannabis in the mocktail; it was created by mixologist Warren Bobrow, author of Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics: The Art of Spirited Drinks and Buzz-Worthy Libations.While he still enjoys wine with dinner, Bobrow says he’s just about quit hard liquor since diving into the world of cannabis cocktails, which he began exploring after getting arrested for smoking a joint in New York City during the Giuliani era.

“If you smoke a joint in public, everyone knows your business,” Bobrow says. “But not if you are sipping a gorgeous Vietnamese Iced Coffee with THC-infused condensed milk on a steaming hot day, watching your coconut water ice melt slowly into the unctuous concoction. Do I have you here?” While the world has become a friendlier place towards cannabis users since Giuliani was mayor, yes, he did have me there.

Highest-End Must Have: The VapeXhale Cloud EVO Vaporizer

If you only knew how many ultra-high-end vaporizers I’ve received (thank you) to test over the last months. It’s a little overwhelming quite frankly to have so much high-priced technology at my disposal when a simple stonedware pipe and a supply of hemp cordage is usually my go/to. But in the deepening cavern that is my equipment closet and the utter mass of so much expensive technology that graces my home, one of the most impressively designed ones, at least from a pure design standpoint is the VapeXhale Cloud EVO Vaporizer. It’s a lot of words to name a hardly inconspicuous machine, that is if you don’t place the expansive and expensive-looking glass rig on board. Then you’d just have the plug-in base and that’s only part of the overall fun!

Darren Gacicia: Discovers Something Unique At The Garden of Eden

I’m fortunate in this journalism world to be able to find interesting and intellectually driven people who work within the cannabis space. Entrepreneurs who are every bit as nerdy and metric driven as myself, with myself, less metric driven. Just one of those things when you’re comfortable being different than the norm. Cannabis attracts all sorts of intriguing people and Darren Gacicia is definitely up there with the entrepreneurial minded. I came across Darren in a circuitous manner. His PR for the Garden of Eden line of exceptionally high quality cannabis oil products had contacted me on a different project. She saw my manner of interviewing, it is somewhat different than the other kinds that are out there, that is for certain, and we pushed forward on this discussion. The questions followed along with phone time. But what I really was intrigued about was the fact that Darren grew up in the near proximity to myself, and he went to prep school at the other prep school in my town- for boys; The Delbarton School. Which I grew up, directly next door to, thus my deeper interest in Darren’s deep success and especially that he graduated from an extremely conservative, Catholic, Private Boys School. The only other people who I knew at Delbarton, were my cousins (not Catholic) and a handful of others over my Morristown-Beard years in the 1970’s. I really hadn’t thought about Delbarton much in some time and this nerdy factoid certainly caught my attention!  Without further interruption, may I introduce to you, someone who is obviously doing exactly what he loves in life. I cannot find anyone more passionate than Darren Gacicia, obviously doing what he loves in the cannabis industry. Hard working too. No one gets to be a financial go/to for a capitalized corporation without being just a bit more than smart.

The Home Bar: A Guide To Designing, Equipping and Stocking Your Own Bar

The Home Bar: A Guide To Designing, Equipping and Stocking Your Own Bar, by Henry Jeffreys  

Foreword by: Alexandre Ricard 

Book Review by: Warren Bobrow: The Cocktail Whisperer

The Home Bar, A Guide to Designing, Equipping and Stocking Your Own Bar, written by the elegant and talented Henry Jeffreys is perhaps the most deeply intriguing home bartending guide I’ve ever enjoyed reading and then critiquing. This may sound like a broad reach, at least on a literary standpoint, but I digress. This book is an all-in-one guide to the outlandishly expensive and the studied. The knowing and the unknowing consumer of high-end spirits guide to the best things in life.  From the handsome end to end cover photography to the carefully laid out rear photography, with just the right amount of written information, it’s clear that this book was created to impress more than just the casual lager drinker. It’s a richly studied design tome, with crisply worded explanations and historical references that allow the reader to become part of the ultra-riche, opulently luxurious, photographically gorgeous, narrative of this unique book.  The stories are so pleasurable to read, and they beg the addition of more exotic spirits into your home and eventually your belly. Sure, these are not your basement wreck-room, dive bar scenes that are visual pleasures, but carefully curated scenarios that evoke the finest in professional cocktail bars-but designed for the home and some cases, small apartment settings. Case in point, the completely, over the top, home bar of Alexandre Ricard, each luxury design element, reminiscent of ultra-riche cocktail bars on the Right Bank in Paris, intellectual in scope, yet encouraging just one more drink of the finest craft spirits that money can buy.  Another Absinthe garcon, please!

When Your Bar Works With Your Kitchen

Do you work with your kitchen?  I know, asking for them to order lemons and limes, grabbing some grapefruits, begging them to freeze some large cubes?  No, that’s not what I’m leading to. I mean putting your kitchen to work for your bar. What? There is a little secret that makes all chefs happy. It’s named food cost. When it’s too high, your chef is angry. He’s not making any money and whatever little money he does make for the owners is being thrown away. Not good for you, nor the restaurant.
