Guam, a white sand island on the North Pacific, replete of huge palm trees with branches dancing to the sea breeze’s tune and sorrounded by crystallin waters with emerald reflections, has been the last country to legalize recreational use of cannabis.

Los Angeles’ cooking star opens his kitchen’s doors to share his vision of marijuana, one shaped between science and the stove. The Herbal Chef innovates in each dish, merging haute cuisine and cannabis. We invite you to sit at his table.

Herbal Chef Restaurant, in Los Angeles, California, is open since 2014. In the beginning, only medicinal marijuana card holding members could taste its menu. Now, after several changes in weed’s legal status in that State, Chris Sayegh’s business, which mixes haute cuisine and our favourite plant, is on the rise. Viewed as a model by other similar companies, Sayegh creates flavour combinations, “infused” or “non-infused”, to offer his customers the ultimate culinary experience.
