(Denver, CO) – Chef Scott Durrah has been a trailblazer in the world of cannabis culinary techniques for over seven years. He created Simply Pure, the first edible company in Colorado to actually infuse food (not just candy and baked goods), has held his own on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show up against Jason Jones, and has appeared on Fusion, Univision, CBS and MSNBC. Durrah is the embodiment of cannabis pop culture.
Not only a cannabis chef, Durrah is an accomplished restaurateur. He currently owns Jezebel’s Southern Bistro, in Denver’s hip LoHi neighborhood, however his passion is the flavor of the Caribbean. He has owned three Jamaican and Caribbean inspired restaurants from Santa Monica to Denver. His restaurants have attracted Hollywood actors and professional athletes. He has catered for actors Michael Keaton and Keenan Ivory Wayans, The Director’s Guild, and has served as a personal chef for numerous Denver Broncos. He is now ready to share some of his best recipes and techniques, up close and personal, on a private resort in Negril, Jamaica.
For four days and three nights, Durrah is hosting the world’s first cannabis culinary excursion to the birthplace of modern ganja and reggae.
“I love Jamaica” states Durrah. “Having the opportunity to share my love of the island, and all of her flavors, is an honor.”
This historic event will take place January 26 – 29, 2015, on the cliffs of Negril. There are 12 rooms available, most double occupancy, with two suites for four people. There will be three cannabis cooking classes per day, along with catamaran sailing, tours to organic farms, VIP cocktail hour and a private reggae concert. The resort chosen for its exclusivity is known around the world as the playground of such celebrities as Brad Pitt, Jimmy Fallon, and Jay-Z, and Beyoncé.
“I have been planning this trip for almost two decades,” says Durrah. “Watching the world change its attitude toward the healing powers of cannabis and the amazing ways it works with food has been a dream of mine since I first lived on the island over 25 years ago.”
Joining Durrah is Chef Justin Langer of San Francisco, who specializes in organic farm to table fare. Justin is committed to the health of his patrons and his Marin County community. A dedicated proponent of farm-to-table cuisine, Justin uses the freshest local, organically grown ingredients whenever possible – supporting local farms and the local economy. He has worked with over 50 of the most recognized cannabis clubs in California, providing high-end edibles and can offer any service related to medical cannabis cuisine
Each morning will begin with yoga and a question and answer session with the chefs, followed by an authentic Caribbean breakfast. Each day will present the opportunity for private classes and group activities. Cocktail hour will be followed by dinner with Jamaican celebrities and VIPs and dessert each night will be served in a candle lit cave at the water’s edge. The all-inclusive event will start at $2,595 per person, not including airfare.
