Meal of Your Life: ‘The Herbal Chef’ on cannabis-infused dining

Chris Sayegh speaks to Billy Dec about a budding restaurant segment

Chicago restaurateur Billy Dec is the host of the Meal of Your Life podcast, where distinguished guests — from fellow renowned chefs to athletes and celebrities — discuss a defining meal.

In this new podcast episode, Chris Sayegh, recognized as “The Herbal Chef” for the combination of marijuana and high-end cooking techniques in his cuisine, talks to Dec about the science and health benefits behind cannabis and the future of cannabis sommeliers. Sayegh also explains the importance of using food to create memories and why the absence of his grandmother and mother’s cooking in college led him on a different career path.
