Private Dinner & Terpene Pairings with The Herb Somm

My first Herb Somm experience was a Thursday Infused event hosted at the Naked Kitchen, a Queen Victorian built in 1870 in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district.  The atmosphere felt rich and cozy, the host and guests like old friends and the food and pairings were divine perfections.   I learned, laughed so hard I cried, and enjoyed myself with glee.  As the evening ended, I found myself making a virtual list in my mind of all the people I wanted to enjoy the next event with.

The Herb Somm was created in March 2017 with the goal of educating consumers and the public about cannabis, and healthy ways to incorporate herbal products into everyday life. While there is an emphasis on cannabis pairings and recipes, wellness and education are also a focus for the brand.

A year later in March of 2018, The Herb Somm brought to life Thursday Infused, a gourmet event series that highlights different chefs and edible producers in the Bay Area. These educational sessions are focused on promoting healthy and safe ways to use edibles and cannabis products. As part of our mission, The Herb Somm donates a portion of event revenues to local 501(c)(3) nonprofits that provide healthy food to the Bay Area community by creating organic, sustainable, and high-yield urban farms and backyard gardens. 

Jamie Evans is the founder of The Herb Somm, a cannabis blog and lifestyle brand that is focused on the gourmet side of the cannabis industry.  She is an educator, host, and writer specializing in cannabis, food, recipes, wine, and the cannaculinary world.
