Getting Baked at a Pot-Infused Shabbat Dinner

Video of the week: “Stoned Shabbat Dinner,” which showcases traditional recipes with, um, an extra ingredient. Let’s just say the candles aren’t the only thing that’s lit at this festive meal.

Rosenberg’s Bagels owner Jeff Rosenberg, AKA Jeff the 4/20 Chef, is your guide. He’s in Denver, natch.


Welcome to Pot Shabbat
Magic Matzo Balls for a Rocky Mountain High

Think Scandinavian sambuca-cured canna ‘lax (infused gravlax) on top of some of Rosenberg’s finest bagels. Next, “a mellow meal featuring medicated matzo ball soup, beef brisket, noodle kugel and roasted vegetables smothered with cannabis schmaltz gravy.”

We don’t necessarily advocate trying this at home.
