Weed is the hottest new trend on cooking shows
Cooking shows are one of the most popular forms of entertainment on television. People love watching other people cook delicious food. But that doesn’t mean cooking shows aren’t evolving, and their next form may involve a lot more cannabis.
Rolling Stone recently examined the growing trend of weed cooking shows. It’s a pretty logical evolution of the genre. Marijuana is becoming legal in more and more states, and therefore more and more people are using cannabis. And research shows cannabis consumers are looking into edibles more now than ever before. So it’s not surprising cooking shows would want to follow the trend.
The high watermark for weed cooking shows is Viceland’s Bong Appétit, which features both lessons on how to make cannabis-infused food as well as a dinner party of people consuming those edible treats. Last year the show was nominated for a James Beard Award, essentially the Oscars for the food world.
