- It was like the elephant in the living room — all of these interviews I’d done about food in Humboldt…and there it was…the ubiquitous Marijuana Brownie. You can travel all over the U.S. and when you mention that you are from Humboldt County — people will do the whole wink wink nod nod — which I find pretty annoying to tell you the truth. Humboldt County is an amazing place filled with wonderful people and without a doubt the best food on this planet…but for some people we will only be known as the Marijuana Capitol of the World.
So here I am doing this radio show and interviewing people about food and Humboldt…and decided it’s time to deal with that elephant. What better way than to interview Elise McDonough, Editor for High Times Magazine, who literally wrote the book on cooking with pot when she authored, “The Official High Times Cannabis Cookbook: More Than 50 Irresistible Recipes That Will Get You High.” And while the brownie is still alive and well in the cookbook — there is so very much more, so much in fact that we had to follow up with a second interview.
