Give yourself the munchies (in every sense) with this ultimate guide to snacks for stoners. Packed with truly delicious recipes for easy-to-make cannabis creations, this is a fun, easy way to whip up a truly relaxing snack or those perfect house-party hash cakes. Cooking with cannabis is the easiest way to enjoy the herb without the hassle of all that paraphernalia and the health risks of smoking. Studies have shown that tar from joints can contain up to 50% more carcinogens and carbon monoxide than regular cigarettes, making this the perfect gift for anyone who wants to avoid the respiratory problems and stigma of smoking, or plain can't roll a spliff. Plus, with a section on the different forms that cannabis comes in, and how you can adapt your recipes to suit them, you can be sure to never overdo the dope. This no-nonsense, no-fuss cookbook ensures that even a half-baked chef can turn out perfect results every time.

Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons

Diana Henry
Authors:
Diana Henry

In this culinary exploration of the Mediterranean, Middle East, and North Africa, Diana Henry has gathered together dishes that combine exotic flavours in ways long forgotten - or never discovered - in many Western kitchens. Colourful, aromatic and perfumed ingredients, from leathery pomegranates, with their insides bursting with ruby seeds, to flower-waters that allow you to drink in the scent of a garden, combine to bring an intoxicating whiff of the exotic to your table and pleasure to your kitchen. The core ingredients of these cuisines are increasingly available so dishes such as Chermoula-marinated Tuna, Fennel, Pomegranate and Feta Salad, and Lavender, Orange and Almond Cake are both delicious and accessible to cook.
