Weedy Wednesdays: High Society Supper Club Review!

Rough Edit: Links etc 2 come ...



It's dead of winter! Cannabis will be legalized this summer! Finally, the distasteful stigma of prohibition is being lifted from our favourite weed! We lowly everyday Canadians will soon be able to relax and enjoy our long slighted reefer to the fullest without the cool, nasty stares! From sea to shiny sea, Canada's medical and recreational cannabis aficionados are about to come in from the cold, in more ways than one! 

Welcome High Society Supper Club Owner and Executive Chef Reena Rampersaad! She's raring to go, leading the way, ready, willing and able to introduce us to the THC infused, culinary, dinner delights of the "Weedy Wednesdays" high times, dining experience!

Reena's a fully licensed and experienced chef. Tonight's pop up dinner location; a fully city health board approved, non alcohol, Hamilton Ontario dining establishment. 



Hubby Host Louic greets us at the door. We enter and take our places around the communal dining table. Tonight's guests? A happy, lively mix of cannabis activists, patients, enthusiasts, another GTA chef and other assorted local folks from the bustling Ontario cannabiz scene. The conversation? A lot of potent and mind expanding fun!

Louic lights up and passes around the kush. Then fires up some dabs [Atomic Jack, Rock Star and a Haze]. Together we partake in the time honoured tradition and most holy sacrament of smoking weed. 

Canada's Prince y Princess of Pot; Marc and Jodie Emery introduced Reena and Luic to me last spring at the 19th Annual Toronto Marijuana Parade. [] Between tokes, I'd been belly aching about the long line up of greasy, fast food trucks there to help try meet our chronic stoner munchie needs. Well, it's problem solved -junk food no more!



Indeed, a quick perusal of the Weedy Wednesdays Pre-Fixe Menu tantalizes ones eager taste buds with it's delightful dinner array of Starters, Main Dishes and Desserts. How about a Salad? Soup? Shrimp? Wings? Doubles? A Parfait? Crumble? Or Brûlée? Take your pick! It's fun food; very Canuck with a folkish appeal and often distinctly Trinidadian-Caribbean bent, especially tasteful for these long, cold, northern nights!

The secret seems to be in Chef Reena's special hot THC house sauces! As the menu shows, they are readily dished out with each entre in little serving cups of 20, 30 and 40 mg doses to dip, spread and spice up our meal. Very pure, natural and Reena assures me she does not use distillates! 



Some my favourite Chef Reena sauces!

On top of a nice buzz from the tokes, the sauces started to kick in for me about 20-30 minutes later, culminating in an absolutely wonderful and transcending medible high. One can, of course, personalize the truly magical High Society supper experience by deciding how much sauce you'll use yourself, according to your own tastes and tolerance level, with some ready advice from Chef Reena and Louic!



For starters, I supped on a steaming bowl of Cream of Roasted Pepper Soup [30 mg]. It was rich but not overpowering, never mushy or too crunchy, very fresh, delectable and creamy smooth! My wife Janet enjoyed the Michigan Salad [30 mg]; mixed greens, blue cheese and walnuts in a berry vinaigrette -perfectly delightful too!

For my main dish, I chose the "vegan" option; Chef Reena's stupendous THC Trinidad Doubles Platter [40+20+20mg]! Consider it high society finger food for today's discerning stoner, one with a trez kool folksy DIY feel. The savoury, lightly curried chickpeas can be heartily scooped up by tearing off a strip of Reena's home made Bara bread. Heap on the various THC infused chutney sauce and toppings. My High Society Supper Club main dish soon power launches me waaaay up into heavenly orbit!



Yummy! Yummy! Enjoy with gusto!


Janet choose the Shrimp Alfredo [40+40mg]. The shrimp was quite succulent, cooked just right, with a highly delectable, juicy crunch, not too soft or hard. Ditto the pasta, also cooked to perfection. We shared a Mocha Creme Brûlée, the rich coffee flavour tastefully creamed, never too sweet.

Suffice to say, the servings were big enough to come home in a doggy bag. Kept us happily snacking away throughout the next day. Each guest was also provided with a tasty little cup of Chef Reena's Habanero and Ghost pepper Sunshine Sauce [5mg], and a Spicy Chocolate Truffle [15mg] to send us merrily on our way back out into the highly, THC infused, Canadian night!



Chef Reena y Louic: Howzabout a toke 2 go with that meal? 

In conclusion; Looking for something spicy? One simply cannot go wrong with High Society Supper Club's Weedy Wednesday dinners! Everything was very tasty and cooked to perfection! 

You can dish out Chef Reena's sauces to suit your own preferences. Mine are high, higher, highest -they perfectly fit the bill. If you prefer them milder, one can do that too!

To put it simply, when local, leading edge, cannabis Chef Reena gets cooking in her kitchen o' love, medibles are turned into a fabulous, creative, high society dining experience. Truly, the High Society Supper Club's welcoming counter culture ambiance, non alcoholic environment and friendly, interesting clientel are a refreshing alternative to the booze laden, establishmentarian dining experiences of yesteryear. As such it's a bright star .... no, make that 5!!! .... for the exciting legalization era ahead, rich in high times, dining excellence, and good cheer! 

Be sure to make a reservation now! Weedy Wednesday's are going to book up very quickly -quite deservedly so! A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
