Marcia’s on Montague Hosting Cooking With Hemp Workshop in West End

Have you ever heard of cooking using hemp as an ingredient? If you want to try its taste or learn what you can do with hemp for food then join Marcia’s on Montague’s Cooking with Hemp workshop in West End. 

As of 2017, the Food Standards Code has legalised hemp seed, a derivative of the Cannabis sativa plant, as food. Since then, Marcia’s on Montague, a specialty grocery store and cafe on Montague Road, has been selling hemp in its inventory. This ingredient is also in some of the dishes served at their cafe.

Set for Wednesday, the 31st of July 2019, botanical expert Caroline de Lore will conduct Cooking With Hemp. The hands-on workshop will begin from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., where participants will learn to prepare the following products:

  • fresh hemp milk
  • hemp hummus dip
  • hemp dukkah (an Egyptian hors d’oeuvre)
  • hemp protein brownie
