How high were you when you put that menu together?

I’ve looked at menus and thought, the chef must have been high to have put this together. It turns out that might have been a possibility.

The New York Times
suggested this week that chefs are smoking marijuana not just to relax from the stressful pace of restaurants but to find inspiration for their menus.

Today, a small but influential band of cooks says both their chin-dripping, carbohydrate-heavy food and the accessible, feel-good mood in their dining rooms are influenced by the kind of herb that can

get people arrested. Call it haute stoner cuisine.

So, as our culture has become a bit more tolerant of pot, does our food reflect that? Instead of Michelin ratings are we moving towards munchie ratings?
